Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Got it. It was the door switch. I wrote that it "could suddenly break, I guess" and that's just what happened. The switch is not in the latch; there are no wires in the door. The switch is mounted on the upper right of the door frame. There's a black plastic paddle that closing the door pushes back. Ours broke off (making it harder to see). I'll order a new part, but for now, I taped a piece of plastic to the door that reaches the broken switch.
By the way, if you are new to dryer repair, as I am, you might not know that the top deck is hinged at the back. You have to pry up the front (there are two rubber restraints) after disconnecting the lint trap shaft. The door switch is easily accessible from the top (at the right). Don't forget to turn off the power.
