Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer will not turn on sometimes.

The dryer has started to not turn on when pushing the start button. There is a sound like the moter starts to run but quits and then nothing. After sitting a few minutes it will start but immediately sounds like motor grinding when first starts. Then the dryer has a different sound than before.

Need to fix this before it leaves my wife stranded and does not ever start at all.
Thanks

The dryer does not spin when start button is pushed. It makes a noise and a burning smell. Like a burned moter.

Crosley dryer Cdes563sq0 if i turn the timer on befor i push the start button the heat will start but the moter dose not start.even after the button is pushed.


It sounds like there is a problem with the motor/belt. If you can get the top up, mine you have to push in two clips between the lid and the body about two inches in from the right and left sides, you can look down into the machine to see if the belt is still on track or if the motor is turning. I had one dryer that the belt would come off the spring tensioned idler pulley. Best of luck

Dryer will not turn on. makes slight buzzing sound when button is pushed. Light goes on, power is on.


Sounds like the motor is gone. Try opening the door and pushing the door swithch inside the dryer door cavity.This may take two people but while holding the door switch, push the start switch and turn the dryer drum at the same time.(in a clock direction) If the dryer starts it means the moter is shot.

When start button is pressed, dryer just buzzes. Has worked 3 or 4 times, but its rarely and only occasional. With the fact that it has started it certainly can't be the motor. Have replaced the pig...


This could be your start switch has gone out. That is what it sounds like to me.
