first check the power to the machine itself,, plug in a light or something to make sure you have power, if thats ok, remove the back of the machine, and check for power ( with a meter) into and out of the thermal fuse, you can see one here,, and also a door safety switch and other pics to check,,
Good Luck feel free to contact me if you need more info

Dryer wont turn on

check for power at outlet, if you have then unplug dryer,remove front panel,use a multimeter or continuity meter, look at blower housing for a white 2 connector part and disconnect one of them, connect meter across the 2 terminals. if you get no reading or beep sound replace it. that is the most common solution for your problem.

We had an older dryer, and it got to the point that it would run a couple minutes, then quit. We bought a brand new Kenmore Elite dryer... model 110.64994300... and it does the same thing. We thought it...

if you have a volt meter u can check power coming in should b 220 volt put one meter leave on black wire an the other on red wire meter should read 220 volt an if u go front black to white it should read 110 votl u could have a bad outlet dose outlet look like it been burn if best if you dont know how read meter to just call your appliance repair service ok be safe an turn power off to dry b4 you start test it out ok hope this help you out

What could cause no power supply to my dryer


There are a couple of things...

First check the circuit breaker in your electrical panel....even though it says it is on turn it off and forcefully slam it on again...

Next thing would be to check the wiring in the outlet and plug...these wires can heat up become loose and then not make contact. If the outlet or the plug looks burnt or is brown at all replace both the outlet and the dryer cord....

Next check the wiring at the dryer....same thing... look for brown or burnt wires...replace the wiring as needed....

Make sure to turn off all power before checking anything!!! Electric can be deadly!!!

If all of this check out then the problem is internal in the dryer...of course using an electrical meter can make the job much simpler.... the power can then be checked at each stage...a meter can be purchased at many dept. stores or Walmart for around 20 bucks....
Set the meter for an A/.C voltage setting of greater then 240 volts.... the reading across the two hot lines should be at least 220 very careful when trying to get these readings on hot wires...

Dryer won't start

It is hard to tell exactly what is wrong without seeing it in person, but I can tell you what to look for. First check the power coming to the dryer.... is a breaker tripped? If you have fuses, make sure both fuses for the dryer are good. Even if only one is bad the dryer wont work. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check for power, first at the dryer receptacle, then where the cord connects to the dryer. It is important to wear safety glasses when doing this. Then you might check the door switch on the dryer. It is one of the first parts to go bad on some models. If you are not familiar with electricity, it would be good to have an experienced person check out your dryer.

My dryer works but wont heat up anymore.It started doing this immediately after the power went out and resumed.

you may have a faulty heat unit of fuse on that heat unit, but i suspect that your problem may be improper power supply. check with volt meter at the wall plug. if good, check heater and fuse with ohm meter.

Dryer wont run

Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the heat canister for continuity.
No continuity, bad part.

I have A kenmore Elite Model #110.65942400 Ser MR2103237.

before you take it apart make sure you have not lost 1 phase of the 220 volt line into dryer , dryers will run and appear fine on 110 volts be will not heat check fuse or breaker and re-set breaker even if it does not appear tripped , if fuse in line turn off power and remove fuses and check with an ohm meter , then if you have a volt meter check for 220 volts @ socket of dryer , then we will talk dis-assembly

Bearing replaced on Dryer

The first place is to check you incoming power a dryer will rotate but wont heat if ony one leg of the 220v pwr is coming in do you have a meter to test ?? you can also go to the breaker panel turn off and back on the breaker as a weak breaker will do this if you have done this and still no heat you will need a meter to check some things also if you remove the 3 screws on the panel between the washer and dryer you will see the element.Make sure to turn the pwr off before touching any wire connections..Let me know what you come up with
