Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Try first unplugging power cord from the appliance, this will drain power from circuits and reset it.

Check the door latch sensor, if that is stuck the door sensor will not let the machine start.

Keep pressed start button for 10 seconds or so, on some dryer this reset the machine.

If it still does not work then there is an internal fault , probably the timer assembly must be replaced.

If you need to call a technician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

If you want to do it yourself, test the timer control, then if it is faulty replace it.

You find replacement here.

SOURCE: Kenmore electric dryer won't start

The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.

Three things you can check the door switch is it clicking? The thermal fuse you want to make sure there is continuity or worse case would be your motor.

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Have an Emerson MW 8115 SS. Kids have apparently locked in buttons on weight or defrost mode. If I set a time 30 sec. or 1 min. timer will count down but when I push start nothing happens. Is there a reset...


Product manual does not show reset protocol.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Emmerson-microwave-manual.pdf

There is Child-Lock feature on page 13 of manual, but display will not let you press buttons
Customer service 1-800-909-1240

Unplug microwave and see if it resets.
Press both Stop and Clear buttons simultaneously.
Try different power level by pressing Power button.
It is possible the Start button has gone bad.
Make sure clock is set.

Dryer just stopped working. Turned knob to desired time and pushed start, nothing happens. When knob is on OFF position and I push the start button, it makes the regular BUZZ sound - times up, clothes...


Remove and inspect the timer knob for a crack or missing tension clamp.
Carefully place it back on the timer shaft while paying attention to the (D) shape in the knob and the shaft.
If they are aligned correctly notice where the position arrow is pointing, ie; off---run--etc.
You may well need a new knob.

I can't set the time, the alarm time, or do anything of that sort


AHAH! I had this problem also, so i tried google and it led me here. Luckily, I kept trying and figured it out so I will share my knowledge with you although you may have found it out already...
First, make sure the radio and ipod are off and it's in clock display mode.
Then, click and hold "alm set" while clicking the left "timer set" arrow to set the hour of your alarm and the right "timer set" arrow to set minutes for your alarm.
Then click "alm on/off" to turn it on and off.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
