My Dryer Heats but won't tumble

When I set the timer on my dryer, I push the start button but nothing happens. I hear a click sound but no tumble. The heat element comes on and the light works when I open the door.

    Start button clicks, but the dryer doesn't start up. No tumble motion, no heat.

When I push the start button on my Kenmore 700 series dryer nothing happens. You can hear the timer clicking as if it is getting power, but the dryer doesn't come on. Could this be a defective timer?


Check the door saftey switch and the start button for continuety.
My bet is the door switch.
Then look at the timer if both those are good.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Dryer timer or start will not work


Yes, it does sound like the timer. You could do an ohms test if you have the ability but timers aren't too terribly expensive or hard to replace anyway.
