Kenmore dryer 70 series 66722690 - has power but won't start (no humming noise, no ticking noise from timer, and no light when you open door) nothing!


I would check the breaker before you go any further. Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok. I have a strong feeling that you won't need to get to this point cause I'm betting on breaker.

Will not start but its making a ticking sound


Electric or gas dryer?
Depending on where the ticking sound is coming from, without more specific information, many dryers use a timer within their dial for timed drying. If the switches are malfunctioning, the ticking of the "timer" can still continue.
If you can hear a whirring sound, which would be the motor, then it may be the drive belt. If this is the case, then the ticking of the timer may be more noticeable due to it being quieter without the spinning drum.

If you have a gas dryer and the ticking is from below, then it may be the ignitor that's faulty. However, that shouldn't cause your dryer not to turn on. It that case the dryer would spin, but not get warm.
With more information, I may be of better assistance.

My dryer wont come on its a hotpoint model #dlb2650bgl the timer is ticking the interior light comes on my husband put a multi-meter on the start switch and shows power what else could the problem be


The first thing I would check is the door switch. If it isn't closed the dryer should not start - although the timer would be active. If it won't tumble or heat then that is the first thing I would check and on Hotpoint that is a high failure rate.

Model pye2000ayw my dryer will not turn on. the timer seems to tick, which indicates there i s power (i assume), and when i press the timer knob to start the machine, it does not start.


make sure first that you have 240 volts to the machine from the house power panel, if so,then it could be a drum belt broken the dryer motor isnt turning or the dryer drum idler tensioner pulley is bad or the belt is off the pulley on either the motor or idler,you need to remove the top and front covers to examine this

No heat, motion, but light is on and timer ticks


Check the thermal fuse on the blower housing. It is for over heat condition and non resettable.

Kenmore dryer not running


Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.
