Push the button manually and see if the light goes off . If it does , then the problem is the thermal fuse (a white slim piece of plastic with 2 wires connected to it ) located on the blower housing beneath the drum .

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

Kenmore 80 series wont start


Common failure of these dryers is the door switch. The switch is located at the top right where the door comes in contact with the tab,

A simple test is to verify that the light is on and goes out when the switch tab is depressed.

If not replace the switch.

Hope this helps?
