Kenmore Dryer won't stay running

It's a 73932 dryer. When the dryer will only run with the door closed and the start button held in. If you let go of the button, the dryer stops. Any ideas where to check? I'm pretty comfortable replacing parts, checking volt/ohm measurements if I know where to look.

If the thermal fuse is bad the dryer won't run at all, or it will have stopped heating completely. more likely this is a unit with a power control board in the console. these were very known for the resistor on the board burning out which can be checked visually. i've had at least 6 or 7 of these do that exact same thing. hope this helps.

You need a new thermal fuse. The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover. This fuse cannot be re-set. Replace if open (there is no continuity between terminals). Part number is AP3132867. It is a Whirlpool part but it is the one that fits most if not all Kenmore/Whirlpool dryers.

SOURCE: GE dryer starts but..... stops

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released

there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.

My kenmore dryer will only run if i hold down on the start button. this has happened to me before but i cannot remember the steps to take inorder for it to reset.


first check the door safety switch,, if its bad the dryer won't run,, if that checks out ok, its time for a new switch for the start button, to check these, and do the door switch first, unplug the door safety switch and place a jumper wire between the 2 wires leading to the switch, try starting the machine making sure your away from any moving parts , if this works, replace the switch, if it stays the same, do this same procedure to the switch for the start button

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.


the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

The light does not go on and the dryer will not run?


If your sure you have power to the machine, and the light does not come on when you open the door, then you need to replace the door switch on the dryer.

touch the door swich and see if it clicks when you push in on it,if that is good you'll have to check thermal fuse that is located either on blower wheel housing or in back of dryer,check to see if belt broke some dryers have switch that kills dryer if belt breaks

Must hold start button to run. no heat


disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor

Kenmore gas dryer timer? problem


Sounds like your centrifugal switch on your drive motor may be defective. The switch is supposed to "latch" (or stay closed) when the drive motor begins to spin. That...or, you may have a defective start switch. Please post back with your COMPLETE model number so I can determine how your dryer is configured as all dryers are not alike. I need to make sure.
