Question about Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer
Dryer will not start. Used it yesterday, no problems. Checked fuses, nothing wrong there.
The 220v is for the heater in the dryer only.
All other features are 110v.
If you hear noise of motor, but the dryer drum is not moving, then you popped the belt.
For a no start, check door switch with VOM / continuity tester. A battery powered tester works well to confirm switch works.
This would require popping top lid at front from it's corner clips, and tilting the top back to the wall as it hinges at the back.
Removing 2 screws (first) holding lint chute to under side of access door of the lint filter screen. Pull out lint screen as well.
Even if the is not the fault, it's a good time to clean this area of lint 100%. Remove front panel complete to access with vacuum. Inspect belt at the same time. Clean off the slip rings that the drum rotates on at the front cover. These are high temp nylon glide rings.
The next area of test will be on the heated tunnel in the back of machine. Two snap switches control temp cutoff.
One could bypass the switch as a test only to see if dryer fires up. 2 screws hold these switches in place on tunnel with 2 wires. Connecting these 2 wires together bypasses the temp switch.
If this confirms bad switch, replace it by ordering from appliance parts. There are 2 switches, and might as well replace both at the same time.
Confirm power at the main circuit breaker box. If this is also a ground fault circuit, these are know to fail as well.
Test with it's test button on the panel switch, and by circuit tester at the outlet for the dryer.

Hi welcome to Fixya
You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum .
The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.
