Kenmore 27 inch wide electric dryer

What tests can be performed to diagnos a non start condition? With the "Soft Heat System" selector pointed anywhere in the "More Dry" position we can hear a ticking sound, but whenever the Start button is pushed we can also hear a buzzing or humming sound. However, the dryer dosen't start with the sellector in any position.

    I have an Elite 27 inch which for the full seven and a half years we've owned it has this problem periodically. We don't hear a hum: the dryer just won't start. We keep the dryer lint-free and have had a better venting hose installed. Also, the technicians have repeatedly replaced the thermal fuse kit and the heating element, but the problem occurs every few months. The latest problem occured seven months after replacing the heating element. I'm waiting for a repair even as I type this!

Can you turn drum by hand? If so you probably need a motor.

No heat


A no heat condition in an electric dryer is typically caused by a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohm meter. Check the components for continuity. No continuity means the component is bad and must be replaced. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer want heat up


Hi

Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:

- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.

Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:

- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
A page for checking gas dryers is here.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
