SOURCE: start problem

Hi,If you hear the hum while you are pushing the start button and when you let off the button the hum stops, you have a notor going bad.
If you can get someone to help you, open the door, hold the door switch in, while someone else holds the start button, you try and turn the drum with your other hand. Sometimes the motor will start but, this only confirms the motor is bad and needs replaced. I hope this helps.

Thanks
Vic

I have a kenmore model #66512694 electric dryer. It will heat up fine and tumble but makes a loud humming noise and cuts off.


Sounds like the motor is over heating. If you have to wait a long time for it to come back on. If so you may be able to clean it but more then likely need a new motor.

When I push the start button the dryer will not start


May need to replace the starter swithch behind the control panel. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS DISCONNECTED. If you still hear a humming sound when you hit the start button then it is not the switch, but the motor and if that is the case you may want to look into your warranty.

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.
