I opened up the lower panel of my kenmore 90 and then removed the blower cover. I found two hair pins lodged in the blower and removed them. I tested the dryer with it open and the blower and drum began to turn again. I buttoned everything back up, and it is running fine now.

Kenmore 90 series dryer, motor wont start, loud


Hi,
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

Buzzing sound


This could be caused by vibration of the element coil supports (ceramic pieces that hold the element) as the machine is running. It could be intermittent due to the expansion and contraction of the coils when heating up and cooling down. See if moving the dryer while it's "buzzing" makes any difference in the sound.
If this is the case, you can replace the heating element or try re-leveling the machine. As a quick fix, tweaking the coil or supports is also possible but I wouldn't recommend this unless you feel comfortable doing so or you have experience.

There is a clicking sound when you press start.


If you heat a click when you push the button,but the drum doesnt turn your belt is broken. About $15 and simple to install.

Kenmore Series 90, just buzzes when you hit the start button even though the cycle dial is in the center. What's broke or what can I test?


It sounds like a defective motor. You may be able to hand start to confirm this. You will need another person for this. With cycle selected and door open, hold in door switch lever. Have second person press start button. While button is pressed, give the drum a spin by hand and see if it starts up. If it does you may be able to dry a load or two. The motor will need replacement.
