If the cord shocked your hubby, the problem is with the cord! It runs on 220 volts, with half (110v) on two seperate wires. One of your wires is shorted or burnt. Unplug the dryer. Pull the dryer out to where you can see where the electrical cord enters the dryer. From the wall, the cord should pass through a strain relief clamp, into the dryer, and then connect to the terminal strip. Many people eliminate the strain relief clamp, and wish they hadn't later. Anyhoo, open the cover plate that covers the wiring in the back of the dryer, and inspect the wiring and terminals. If a shock occurred, the cord probably needs replacing. Purchase a similar cord (~$15), install it through the strain relief into the hole below the wiring access cover on the back of the dryer, and make the wiring connections. For a three wire cord, the outside wires are the hot leads and connect to the dryer, one to the left, one to the right. The middle lead is the neutral, and connects to the middle terminal. Tighten the strain relief, and replace the wiring access cover.
Hope that this was helpful. Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!

We have a toro model 20031. The battery doesn't work and my husband disconnected all battery connections. Should the engine still start with the pull cord?

leave all the battery connections connected, then prime the carb, and pull to start, i have a quad with an electric start and a pull start, it will not start with the pull cord if the battery is not connected.

Maytag stacked unit LSE7806ACE. dryer is fine , the washer will not fill or run, if I manually turn the timer to drain the tub spins and the lid switch works fine. But the unit won't do anything f

You have a timer problem, the contacts are welded in spin mode.
This is almost always caused by advancing the timer by hand when the dial is pulled out in the "ON" position, causing arcing of the contacts.

It worked fine one morning when my husband used it and then later that day it just wont turn on at all. we tried all different settings and the on button just wont kick it on. Could it be a fuse? or plug?...

need make and modal but you should check and see if the drum turns with not much resistance if so the belt could be broken. On some brands they have a switch to turn the dryer off if the belt breaks. If one of the two fuses supplying the dryer is open the dryer may not start.

Kenmore 64112 dryer wont start when I hit the start button

Check house fuses or circuit breaker.
Pull 220V cord from wall outlet and inspect the gold prongs.
If you see any burnt areas on the prongs the outlet is bad.

If the unit makes no noise when you press the start button check the dryer door switch and make sure it clicks when depressed.
Sometimes the door switch arm can break off so when the door closes
the door switch cannot be activated.

If you hear a growl noise when you press the start button 2 things...
1. The motor is bad and needs replacing.
2. An object fell down the lint trap and is preventing the motor from turning.

Also if the dryer vent has been plugged causing the dryer to over heat a saftey fuse may have blown and needs replacement.
