There is a switch that sits behind that start button. To get to it, unplug the dryer and pull it away from the wall. There is a metal cover that runs along the upper rear side of the dryer -- remove that and you will see the switch behind that button. You can disconnect the wires going to it (you may want to mark them) and pull the button off of the front of the switch. Then pull that plastic tab up and the switch will pop out if you twist it clockwise.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 dryer wont start, just hums


Check for correct voltage at the terminal block on the back of the dryer, where the power cord attaches to the dryer.You should be getting 220/240 volts, check by way of a voltage tester.
If the voltage is correct, then could be the motor capacitor or the motor itself, or start button?
Good Luck !
