If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly. OR The start capacitor may have failed and i would not suggest you deal with that as they give out a nasty electrical charge, also check and clean all filters and check your user manual for further advice as your machine should still be under warranty, call the numbers listed in your manual. good luck

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up

If you get a series of four rapid beeps when you push START in an attempt to start your dryer, your door switch (interlock) is defective.  I have experienced this problem before and it is a fairly simple problem to fix.  The easiest way to tell is to open the dryer door and push the door interlock in by hand.  Hold it in while pushing the START button.  If the dryer starts, then all you have is a simple problem of the door not closing properly.  If the dryer still does not start, however, replace the dryer door interlock.  The interlock should also make a definite "click" while pushing it in.  If it does not, the switch is worn out.  Some dryers have an upper and lower door interlock.  If yours is equipped with two interlocks, make sure they are both functioning and that the door is latched properly.  I have experienced problems where dryers doors with two interlocks would close at the top, but not at the bottom.  The dryer would not start as a result.  If you can provide me with your model number I can get a part number and price for you.  I can also tell you where you can get the part and provide instructions on how to replace it.  Let me know.  I hope this helps you.

Brand new Kenmore Front load won't work


It sounds like the plug is mis-wired. The panel works off of 110v but the rest is 220v. If one line is swapped with the ground you will get 110 only.
