Dryer will not start. when push button is


Most likely the start switch or door switch has failed. Other failures can also cause this symptom: bad timer, broken belt, bad centrifugal switch, bad motor, etc.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

Just stopped working still has power-inside light comes on and timer makes noise when you turn dial but does not start when you push start button


This sounds like the door switch. But it could also be the non-resettable thermal fuse inside. Open the door, depress the door switch until it clicks, and while holding it in see if the dryer starts.

Kenmore dryer...65852 timer switch does not work. dryer starts on its own when I shut the door and bi passes the push/start dryer button. Can a woman fix this?


Good day,
Ma'm I don't know your mechanical background. So you'll have to be your own judge
One cause could be the contacts in the push to start switch welded together.
Even though it might appear to go in and out properly, the insides of the switch are bad.

Remove the back cover of the consule. Remove one of the wires connected to the push to start switch, and tape up end to prevent shorting.
Plug machine back in and test. If it won't start, then the push to start switch is bad, and needs replaced.

If the push to start switch is not the problem, then it would be the centrifugal switch in the main motor itself. Here is a tutorial on accessing the motor. A major job, with some complications involving the blower wheel.

P.S. If the dryer performs normally other then the starting problem, there is no reason you cannot use it indefinately
There was a time when dryers had no push to start function.
Proceedure was, with the timer off, and door open, load cloths, set timer, close door. Works great.

Drier button does not work when push it to start machine


You need to check the dryer door switch. I may be bad. If the timer is clicking it is probably working fine. Also you need to check that the dryer is getting power to the unit. Check your breakers and also pull the unit out and look at the dryer cord. Check the terminals for a short or burnt looking one. Once you have established you have power going to the unit, you can find where the comunication stops within it.

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed


It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.

Kenmore dryer keeps on going and going


The timer is bad. It is located behind the knobs and can be replaced really easily. The price for a new timer is about 35 dollars. If this helped please rate

Dryer Timer not Working


check the door switch it could be getting stuck

1 Answer

Heating element stays on after the drying cycle stops and the timer will also continue on with the door shut or open once you start a drying cycle. I replaced the timer and the start push button.


I would suggest that you check the door switch, as the m/c should not work with the door open,whilst the door switch is made everything will continue to work.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
