Kenmore 70 series dryer will not start. When starter is depressed there is a sound like something is trying to engage but will not. Then we detect the smell of electrical burning. After a couple of tries...


Hi, It sound's like your dryer motor is cooked. Before you give it the last's rights, it could be something jamming the motor and preventing it from starting...though that usually won't cause them to smoke which would produce the electrical burning smell, just stop via the overload device. Time to unplug the unit and dig into it. If you feel capable, if not call in a pro. I would try to confirm the motor problem first it may be just as worth while to buy a dryer depending on the age & condition of your's. The motor's alone can be quite expensive. Hope that help's move you forward at least. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Dryer trips circuit breaker smell almost like something burning coming from dryer


In order to trip a circuit breaker, there is almost for sure, a dead short to ground. Takes quite a bit to trip a breaker. The smell is most likely something electrical burning. Stop resetting the breaker and have it checked out. Continous resetting and tripping can cause more damage. The breaker is doing it's job.

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed


Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

Washer just stopped


I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .
