Stackable Kenmore washer/dryer-- dryer will not start

My dryer was working fine. I took a load of laundry out of the dryer & put the next load in and the dryer would not come back on. There was no noise or anything it just would not restart. I checked the braker box & it was fine & the washer was working fine. Any ideas regarding what the problem might be? And also where are the fuses located (??? do you have to remove the back panel or are the fuses located somewhere on the front?)

Thank you,
Dena Bevins

SOURCE: My Push Start Relay or Control Knob is not starting the Dryer

is this the even heat model? if it is you need a new control board on the back of the timer area and might as well buy a couple relays the black ones with 4 wires in them. one is for the pts and the other is a heater relay both are the same part

Check the automatic door shut off switch and wiring. When the door closes it actuates a switch (completes and electrical circuit) which allows the dryer to operate.

SOURCE: Kenmore electric dryer, won't start and clicks by time dry knob

usually the thermal fuse goes and dryer dies part number 3390719 located in front of dryer on top of the blower wheel housing,when you read anything out you have to pull one of the wires off to get correct reading.also on some of the dryers there is a switch on the pulley that will kill the dryer if the belt breaks

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer-90 Series- Pushed Start button nothing happened

get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know

When I put a light load into washer, follow directions, the washer starts by running water but does not go into next cycle

I would check the lid switch. If switch is faulty, it will allow unit to fill like normal, but won't agitate or spin.

My Frigidaire stackable laundry center will not fill with water?

Hi Keith Knapp, I appreciate your inquiry!
I understand that your Frigidaire laundry center is not filling with water. It sounds like you could be having a problem within water valve, control board, or door switch. I would recommend having a technician out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

I have a stackable washer and dryer the washer works but the dryer when I turn it on it starts and the drum starts to role then it cuts off and I can smell a burning smell I am so tired of washing clothes...

a number of things but first unhook the electricity and take the back off the dryer look for burnt wires ect... it can be plugged with trash lent ect clean out the dryer including the blower wheel housing follow the vent to the housing that is it. Also the next biggest culprit is the elect motor its self if its bad you can order one from the company that made it or a number of companys on line(they will be cheaper) good luck and replace your belt while you are in there.

I have a stackable washer and dryer. Both have worked fine except recently clothes started getting caught between the drum and the front frame of the dryer. My husband pulled it apart checked the screws...

You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

Dryer won't Start

the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
