Kenmore Dryer will not start

My wife fininshed a load and the next one she put in dryer, the dryer did not start. You have to continue to push button to make it spin. The vents are clean. Model # 110 70972990 - gas dryer. Also, where in the dryer is the part that is in need of repair. Sorry, I'm just a beginner in trying to fix my home dryer. I'll try it first before calling the repair man.

    I have a similiar problom with my Kenmore electric dryer. Except it won"t turn on at all. The timer makes the ticking noise as always but the start button does not work. I have checked to make sure no wires came loose or burned out. So far it looks like everything is intact. I would appreciate some help in fixing this.

If you have to hold the start in to spin the drum, try to replace the "switch Push to Start" about $14.** i have a gas dryer #70972.

For anyone else with this problem, I have two replacement boards. One came with my dryer and has been used, the other is brand new. I bought the brand new board to fix the dryer myself and as it turns out, that wasn't the problem. Replacement boards are usually close to $100 a piece ... I will sell for much less.

Lui, sounds like your even heat board failed. The dryer will run as long as you hold the button down. The board is under the consol on the left side. Easy to change out. Go to repairclinic.com and enter your part number, 3976609 and it will bring up a picture and price. Save your self the labor. Catriver.

Our Kenmore Front loader Dryer Mod # 110.61402310 i put our clothes in the Dryer and powered it on and then Nothing wont Power on


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released. hope it helps

My Kenmore Series 70 Dryer will not start at all. No sensation of the start button doing anything when I push it. Thermal fuse continuity is good (0 ohms). Light goes off inside the dryer when I depress...


most likely its the push button that is bad. you can buy one from any appliance dealer that services a kenmore dryer. the part is a reasonable price. you also have to give them the model number and serial number. have a good day!!

Dryer stops but the timer continues on


Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

Kenmore 90 plus series dryer won't work


Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:

It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
