Hi there,

Yes, first you can check Power from the house -
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Second thing to check is Door switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Good Luck!!

Please do rate this solution.

Thanks

After 500 kenmore dryer is done drying the dryer won't shut off


The push-start switch in the dryer is probably bad. The contacts inside the switch get warped over time, causing the dryer to think you pressed Start again after it finishes a cycle. Replacing that switch should solve your problem. You can find the switch online at PartSelect.com if you know take the rear panel off the dryer and see what the switch looks like.

Kenmore electronic sensor gas dryer thinks door is open


Hello linda, it sounds like the door switch is not working in the closed position, when you close the dryer door the door switch shut's the light off, it also allow's the dryer to run when the door is closed, if it's defective the dryer will not run, check the connections at the door switch, if the connecetor and wire's look ok your door switch will have to be replaced. Hope this help's.
