SOURCE: Kenmore electric dryer won't start

The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.

2001 tundra v6 auto 2wd. the gauages, turn signal, ac, and radio all quit working all of a sudden. have checked all the fuses (both hot and grounds) and all are good

All those things have in common is the ignition switch, that only in accessory, or on (run), or start, allows power to that portion of the fuse block protecting those circuits, everyone you mentioned that quit.
Use a test light or voltmeter, pick a fuse -gauges. With key on, the fuse should show power on it, and across it if the fuse is good. If it doesn't have voltage to it, trace it back to how the ignition switch turns that portion of the fuse panel on (possibly a relay-ignition or accessory relay...I'm guessing), and further, whether any relay involved has a "hot at all time" supply of battery power as the power feed for that portion of the fuse block. This relay's power source would be from a maxi fuse or a fusible link, if equipped, all under the hood.
If the fuse block for all those is powered up with key on, then it may be a common ground problem-somewhere behind the dash.

Won't work. No service code.

the first things to check is the door switch,open the door and push in the switch,if it doesn\'t click when pushed in the switch is bad,next thing to check is the belt,on some models there\'s a switch on the pulley assy. if there isn\'t any tension on the pulley the dryer won\'t start.if you need more help i need the model number off of the dryer,open the door and lolook around the opening where you put the clothes in and you\'ll see a tag with the model number,if the dryer hasn\'t been taken apart and cleaned out the thermal fuse could have popped,if the dryer gets to hot inside from a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is blocked the fuse will pop and it\'s non resetable.

My1998 explorer just quit it won't start i got new

The 98 explorer is equipped with a power surge system to protect internal vehicle wiring, what this means is that if there is a short in the vehicles wiring the alternator will disengage. A way to tell if it is faulty wiring is to pull all the fuses out of the fuse block and try to start it if the engine turns over the problem is internal wiring. If not then you have to put all the fuses back.

Kenmore Elite Model 110.42926 202 after setting the desired cycle will not start when you push the start button

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.

Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.

Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.

Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Dryer won't start

Either one or 2 things happened. The move cause the lint to shift around inside the dryer and it overheated blowing the fuse. OR the new apartment's vent is blocked and caused the dryer to overheat. All maytag dryers are not the same but they all have a non resetable fuse mounted on the blower housing. When the temp exceeds 350f it melts and kills power to the motor. If the motor is not running the heat does not get power. The motor must be turning to make the cent switch power up the heater. Dryer manuals

2004 Seville: All the power in the driver's door is out. None of the switches work. Further. the battery keeps discharging. Sounds like a short somewhere. Any ideas?

Open the door. You will see wires in the door jam which go from the fuse block to the all electrical components of that door. It is quite common for one or some of these wires to become broken. Sometimes you can push the protective rubber sleeve to one side and feel each wire to find the break, other times you will have to use a meter to test each wire. If ALL components are not working I would check the main power (hot wire) from the fuse block to the connection at the switch block. Also it is common for the connections of the drivers door to develop corrosion on electrical connections because of the driver having that window or door open during rain.

2005 colorado pulled fuse for power locks, to stop automatic locks. drivers window and door locks quit working. reinstalled fuse but didn"t start working again.????. fuse is ok drivers window and locks...

This is a common problem, there is either a pinched wire in the harness that is in the door jam or your fuse block is shot, there is a gm service bulletin out on this, I would call your local dealership to find out if it is covered.

The drivers side window auto up/down quit

1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

Broken Radio

Jonzo. if u can't find a fuse labeled radio in the fuse block, check the power wire that connects to the radio itself, it usually has a fuse built into the line. I'm not sure about the saturn, but the fuse may be the old cylinder shape fuse, it may be inside a small cylinder shaped plastic case w/ a wire going in one end (power in) and out the other (to the radio). If it's this type of fuse, u have to push both ends in and twist, and it will come apart, allowing u to remove the fuse and check it. If u tried a radio u know works, hopefully it's just this fuse in the power wire. countrytcurt0
