Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Sometimes starts, sometimes doesn't

Sometimes I can push the start button and the dryer will start. Other times it will make noise and not start. Then other times it will do nothing at all. When I come back later, it will start again.

Kenmore electric dryer model # 87670100


The motor is weak and needs replaced, don't hold the start button too long or you may smoke the motor's thermal protection and it could get smokey and stinky. Make sure you can get the blower wheel off before you make a run for parts, sometimes you have to break them off the shaft. : (

Kenmore dryer will not start


If the buzzing noise is from the vicinity of the switch, then suspect the push button contacts, if from within the bowels of the machine, then something is probably preventing the motor from running up to speed, it is stalled - (there are buzzes, and buzzes).This could be many things, from something mechanically jamming the drum, to worn bearings or a faulty motor/start circuit.
As I am not aware of your skills, I am not asking you to take the back off and have a look.
