Question about Kenmore 84152 Electric Dryer
Dryer is 2-1/2/ years old. Two days ago, I did several loads of wash and the dryer worked fine for everything. Yesterday I did a small load of wash, put the clothes in the dryer and pushed the start button... nothing happened.
All the panel lights light up, the knobs and buttons to change settings work, but when the start button is pressed... nothing.
I verified that there is current to the dryer, and reset the circuit breaker for the 220v going to the dryer. All looks fine. Looked in users manual at troubleshooting guide and it said that it could be the "Thermal limiter was tripped" and to call service for replacement.
Called Sears and made appointment to have service man come out next week.
This morning, I decided to push the start button just for the heck of it. The dryer came on !!! I know it's Halloween...Are we possessed, or what???
I let the dryer run for 45 minutes in no heat mode just to see if the motor would "kick out" after heating up or something, but it seemed to work fine.
Any suggestions here?... I'm certain that this will happen again.
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

My Kenmore dryer is about 10 years old. I got my laundry out, put a new one in and .....nothing. No beep no light just silents. I checked the fusebox and the plug and it seems fine. What could be wrong??????
