Odds are, it's the motor. Unless that particular model has a belt drive on the fan, then, it would simply be a job of replacing the belt if it's slipped off, worn, or broken.

most of the time it is the door switch that goes bad,also you can check the main fuse inside the dryer on the blower box,and always make sure your dryer vent and wall vent are clear to vent,let me know what you find-mike

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

Kenmore dryer 70 series


Check the vent for clogs and kinks. Could be something in the blower wheel causing the noise and blocking the vent.
Remove the vent from the back of the dryer, unplug the dryer, and reach inside the dryer vent to check for items lodged in the blower housing.

Kenmore 70 series electric dryer not coming on


next time send the model number,if it's not starting unplug the dryer,on top of the blower wheel housing there will be a thermal fuse,if the filter is on top it's behind the back panel of the dryer,if the filter is inside it's in the front of the dryer,it will be near the duct that the lint filter slides into,you need to remove at least one of the wires before you read it out with a meter,it will be a 3392519 or a 3390719,these are the two most used thermal fuses.let me know what you find,if it is the fuse most likely you need to clean out the dryer.blow out the vent line i use a leaf blower if it's long,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Kenmore dryer help?


Sounds like motor is stalled. Remove the lint filter, look inside down toward the bottom left corner at the blower wheel. Something may be jammed in the blower wheel. If difficult to see, TURN OFF POWER TO MACHINE, remove bottom access panel. 2 to 3 screws on bottom of panel. Remove lint housing (3 to 4 screws) and inspect blower wheel for debris.

An Old Gas Kenmore 7870701


Michael, here are a few things to check. Can you turn the drum by hand? If not you may have something in the blower wheel binding the motor. You can acess the blower by removing the back panel and removing the two screws under the vent screen on top. Once the back panel is removed the blower wheel will be behind the vent. Three or four screws and it's off. If the blower wheel is ok, it may be the motor itself going bad. Have someone hold the door switch down and while pressing start, give the drum a turn. If it starts running, it's probably a bad motor. Other things to look for is bad rollers. If they are bound up it may prevent the dryer from starting. Check these things out first...Catriver..post back.
