Check the door switch first if it is ok ..(doors not popping open) then the PTS (push to Start) switch is most likely bad as it wont hold in after it was pressed

I have a Kenmore 70 Series dryer that started up then after a few minutes it quit altogether. Power is there, timer doesn't tick anymore like it used to (when you close the door but don't push the start...

Check for continuity of the thermal fuse located in the back next to the cycling thermostat (its white) You also need to make sure your breaker hasn't tripped or partially tripped. Try turning the breaker all the way off then back on. If those things are ok your next step is to check to make sure the belt isn't broken.

You have a bad thermal fuse , usually caused by lint blockage from the filter or vent hose .

I have a kenmore 70 series electric dryer. The motor won't start, I can hear the timer ticking.

There is a circuit board that is in the control panel. It is mounted into a plastic carrier that is skrewed into the panel. You could pull it straight out and check it with a multimeter to see if there is continuty, check the two blue resisters and if no continuty, replace!

The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet

On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
