Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore electric dryer, model: 110.63102100. Dryer doesn't turn on when you try start it about half the time. There is no rhyme or reason, it just starts every now and then when you push the button. It heats ok, and works fine...when it works! We have thought it was the extreme temps since the washer/dryer is out in the garage and the temps outside are 105-115 degrees. It also did this during the winter, so maybe excessive heat isn't the problem? Also have tinkered with turning off almost everything in the house (including A/C)and that theory worked one time, but not any other times.

Hello.
It sounds like you have a bad door switch or a bad start switch. These are the only two things that will cause it to be intermittent like that. I would make sure the door hits the door switch solidly before you replace anything. A warped door can raise a ton of havoc.
