The door switch is located inside the door on top left or top right of the dryer, if it is one of the newer 70 series dryer it will be on the inside bottom towards the middle

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series electric dryer will not start even though the door switch switch appears functional and power is getting to the timer.

Easy fix. I had the same problem on mine. You need access to the back. Remove back cover. Look at bottom left, you will see two blue wires going to a white plastic item next to one of the thermal sensors. This white plastic piece is a fuse, or fusible link if you like. I'm not sure what the rating is, but you can take the old one to a parts store. They can match it. Now, why did it blow? Well, if the dryer is old, it could be just worn out. But more than likely, one of your 230 volt lines has degraded due to a bad connection, thus drawing more amps, thus blowing the fuse. Look at where the power cord comes in at. Is there any discoloration or oxidation at the terminals? If so, replace the power cord at this time, and try to clean up the terminals as best you can. Also, at this time, you probably better take a look at the lint collector duct running along the left side down the back. It's probably so clogged with lint that your dryer does't dry as fast anymore, and air flow from the exhaust is restricted. Take the duct off and clean it out, or blow it out with compressed air. You should be up and running now. Have fun...

How do you turn off the dryer signal on kenmore 70 series dryer


On a 70 series dryer, the knob on the far right of the panel controls the signal. You can turn it left or right to set the signal to "On" or "Off."

If you've set it to Off and the signal still comes on, that switch that sits behind the knob is bad. It's the same switch that controls when the dryer starts. You can either try to repair it (by bending the contacts back into their original alignment) or replace it. A new switch is less than $10, and you can get one many places online, including from PartSelect.com:

Kenmore 70 series dryer problem


HI. This may be an issue concerning the pressure switch that is located inside the rim of the actual door.

This switch activates the main drum motor when a cycle is selected when you are ready to dry your clothes. As soon as you select the desired cycle and you load the clothes and shut the door, the last thing to do is push the start switch. if the door pressure switch is malfunctioning, it will not allow you to start the dryer. it will simply not spin.

If you can visibly see the light inside the drum/basket while the door is closed, this will confirm the malfunctioning pressure switch that is located inside the inner part of the door rim.

Its located in this position so that the actual door can make contact with it, in return, applying pressure to close the switch and complete the circuit. this will cause the dryer to spin.

You stated that you can see the drum light shinning when the door is closed and, this will confirm my diagnosis. You can preform a hard reset just to make sure of this defect. Simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes or, shut down the circuit breaker for 5 minutes as well. Any methods will work. Once the 5 minutes are up, simply plug back in this unit and try to run a normal cycle. if this problem is still and issue, it will once again confirm a door pressure switch failure and you will need to replace the switch in this unit.

I would check the wire clips and connectors as well located on this switch for lose or worn contacts. this can be a problem spot as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

Kenmore 70 series dryer


when you put your belt back on you must have had to take the front panel off am I correct? Did you forget to reconnect the door switch wires? Without them re-connected your dryer won't run.
