Question about Kenmore Dryers
I have a Kenmore dryer, 110.87683110 that is probably 15 years old.
It will no longer start.
I checked the door switch. Light comes on when open and goes off when closed.
Power from the house is fine.
There is a slight hum when you push the start button but nothing happens. The drum will move if pushed from inside and the belts seem to have good tension.
I also checked (what I think is) the thermal fuse on the housing near the exaust. There is no resistance on the meter.
The slight hum you are hearing is the start windings in the motor. This is a common problem in the kenmore dryers and there is nothing you could have done to keep it from happening. the part number on the motor is 279827 and price from sears is $105.99.
