Try hip checking it while you push the start button. If it starts you need a new contactor swich(relay) for the drum motor.

The dryer wont start when i press the start button


maybe the dry door switch or the reset button on the motor. if you here like a click noise when you push the start button then its the reset. if not then more then likely it is the switch, which means either way the front panel has to come off, screws are located inside dryer door, the top corners are clipped from the inside so a flat tip screw driver will pop the corners, then disconnect switch, if it is the switch remove switch and tape wire together, put front panel on with top clips, plug in and push start drum should turn. get new switch.the reset buttons are on the motor and when you push the reset it will click. Hope this helped Tim

Push start button wont start dryer


This could be the non resettable thermal fuse has popped, or the door switch is not working. Open the door and press on the door switch until it clicks and push start to see if it works. If it clicks and still no start, then the thermal fuse needs replaced. UNPLUG the dryer, remove the back and you will see the white thermal that looks like a regular thermostat with 2 wires on it. It is located on the air plenum. There could be 2 depending on the exact model, but normally only one white one. These thermals usually pop when the temperature gets too hot as a warning something needs checked. Check your vent and be sure it is absolutely clear, and the flapper on the outside is not stuck with lint buildup.

Kenmore heavy duty dryer model#86870800 wont start running


Hi ya, rkallen
Welcome to fixya.com


You said, when we push the start button, it will lightly click like it is ready to go but wont actually start. Is it the starter button that is bad? How hard is that to change ourselves? Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a bad starter switch inside or a bad relay.
Doing it your self you will not be able to determine if it is the starter switch or the relay. You need someone who knows how to use test equipment!

Fuse


Your belt is broken, the click that you hear is a centrifugal switch that shunts your start button, so we know the motor is running. Check your belt.
