Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I was using the dryer and when I walked past the fuse box, I heard a clicking noise. The circuit breaker to the dryer was making the noise. About 30 minutes later, the dryer buzzed and the clothes were finished and all dry. I put in a second load. An hour later, the buzzer sounded and the clothes were hotter than usual. A couple of shirts were wrinkled bad. I went to put in one last load and the dryer wouldn't start. My wife was working in the bedroom where the fusebox is and she said she smelled something burning.
Also the dial turns by itself. I set it on 60 and push the start button nothing. But everynow and then I hear a little click at the dryer and it's now at the off position. A few minutes later, I hear another click. It's now turned more to the next off position and so on even without being on.
I went back and changed the circuit breaker, but the dryer still won't come on.
