The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

I would also, check the Thermal Fuse as well.

My Kenmore Dryer stops before the time I set is up.


Sounds like the operating thermastat may be bad letting it get too hot and causing the motor breaker to kick out . When it cools it will start again. Check all thermastats.

I typed in 66812 not the number that is showing - I need to know what receptacle to use with the Kenmore 66812 electric dryer. Thanks for any help you can give me.


on the front of dryer open the door there should be a tag or on the rear where the cord goes into the dryer there should be a tag to tell you what the voltage is
should be a 250 volt plug and outlet to match
nema # plug-S42 AND THE OUTLET # 6-30 OR 6-50

Electric dryer runs but no heat Model # 96589210 65892


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel--Push OFF, then ON. Try operation, if still nothing, recheck breakers. If tripped again, there is a short to ground within the dryer--usually the heating element.

Kenmore Electric Dryer 66812 clicking not starting


I hate to tell you this, but it is probably the timer. The good news is that it is easy to replace and you don't have to have a tech to do it.

Kenmore 66812 dryer stops but heat stays on


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Motor runs, but no spin on Kenmore front load dryer


more than likely your belt has come off there is a panel in back remove it and look inside now the wheel that keeps the belt tight has a habit of coming off if some yahoo didn't put it on right find it and look for two slots in the floor of the drier it slips into put it in the slots and pull it down then put the belt on top of it should fix the problem
