How to access the start switch on a Kenmore 70 series dryer


The start switch on a Kenmore 70 series dryer sits directly behind the button you push in to start the dryer cycle, and it can occasionally go bad. Accessing this switch for repair or replacement is relatively simple; just follow the steps below. (These instructions were written specifically for the Kenmore 73742 heavy duty dryer, but they should apply to all of the dryers in the Kenmore 70 series.)

1. Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet.

2. Pull the dryer away from the wall so you have enough room to get to the rear side of the dryer.

3. Remove the rear access panel. This panel sits horizontally along the upper rear side of the dryer, and it is held in by six slotted screws. Put the screws aside, but do not lose them.

4. The start switch is located on the far left side (as you are looking at the rear of the dryer). It is a small black box with wires coming off of it. Disconnect these wires, but note which wire connects to which terminal for when you reattach them.

To remove the switch and button assembly as one piece, you'll first need to remove the knob from the front of the dryer. You should be able to pull the knob straight off, but if it's tight a pair of pliers might help. The round white plastic piece might come off with the knob; put it somewhere safe so you don't lose it. Then go back to the rear of the dryer and pull the black plastic tab (sticking vertically away from the switch) toward you to release it, and rotate the assembly clockwise until it pulls free from the panel.

To remove the switch from the button and housing, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the switch up. Two of the four sides are tabbed; pry these two sides up to release the switch. There is a spring that sits behind the start button -- be sure not to lose this spring.

Dryer won't stay on


The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

Kenmore 64112 dryer wont start when I hit the start button


Check house fuses or circuit breaker.
Pull 220V cord from wall outlet and inspect the gold prongs.
If you see any burnt areas on the prongs the outlet is bad.

If the unit makes no noise when you press the start button check the dryer door switch and make sure it clicks when depressed.
Sometimes the door switch arm can break off so when the door closes
the door switch cannot be activated.

If you hear a growl noise when you press the start button 2 things...
1. The motor is bad and needs replacing.
2. An object fell down the lint trap and is preventing the motor from turning.

Also if the dryer vent has been plugged causing the dryer to over heat a saftey fuse may have blown and needs replacement.

Start but will not stay running


Some dryers have a broken belt micro switch mounted where a lever will stop the motor from getting into the run mode. They do this to keep the heater from catching fire. If your dryer is a DOT dryer (dryer of tomorrow) made by maytag for kenmore then it certainly has such a switch. If your dryer is a plain jane whirlpool manufactured one then you needs a motor replacement most likely friend. Sowwy.

Dryer not working


Sounds like two problems.

First, the screeching noises are probably from your belt tensioner wearing out and needing replacement. Or the belt is not properly seated on the tensioner and needs readjustment. No biggie there.

BUT...

If you have to keep the start button pressed for the dryer to keep spinning, you may have bad centrifugal switch. That switch is built into your dryer motor. Therefore, the motor will have to be replaced... BIGGIE!
