Start button will click but won't start


Hello. Your model dryer has a service flash on the lower door strike/catch concerning not staying closed or not closing properly. If the door is allowed to open too much, the door switch will not be closed and the dryer won't run. The part number for the new kit is 279570 and it includes 2 door strikes and several catches. You choose the ones you need. However, if the door *is* closing properly, you can put the unit in diagnostic mode(door closed, all indicators off) by pressing/holding any button *except* stop for 2 seconds, then releasing, press/hold 2 sec, release, press/hold 2 seconds, release-- all the indicator lights will light for 5 seconds, and an 8 88 will be shown in the display. If there are *no* active fault codes, the indicators will momentarily turn off and then stay on with the 8 88 displayed. If there is an active fault code, it will be flashing in the display. (ex. would be an "F" and "xx" where "xx" would be a number.) If you press the same button you originally pressed once, then again, then again, the most recent code will be displayed, then the next, and so on up to 4 stored codes. To turn off diagnostic mode, just press stop. I hope this helps you!

Door ajar light and interior light flash for about 30 seconds after turning car on


well most likecly you have a bad latch, since you do not mention the year, earlier models had a button on the door jam, later models is all incorporated in the door latch, usally if it is the latch, the door don't close with the remove and some times it doesn'h shut properlly.

I have an AEG 57560 condenser dryer.The unit start properly, turns well, changes rotation well, but stops sometimes after 10-30 seconds. When I restart the unit, sometimes it works well, sometimes it...


Check the door catch......mine was doing the same, and I noticed that the door catch was split slightly and the door was not completely closed. This meant that the dryer kept thinking the door was open and so automatically turned off. Now all I need to do is find the replacement part!!
Hope this helps.

Won't shut off unless the door is opened


Usually the only thing that will stop the dryer is to open the door or turn the timer to the off position.

How to replace door switch on old kenmore stac.dryer 110.88752792


Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.Check online for the part repairclinic.com has it for $14.00 not bad

Suddenly stopped working will not start at all any setting


assuming that the circuit breaker or fuse is not blown, this is most likely caused by the door switch. if the door is not closed, the dryer will not turn on, period. you will have to try to jump over the 'possibly bad' switch. first, shut off the breaker. second, wrap a putty knife with masking tape to prevent scratching up the dryer. then, use it to pop open the plastic catch on each front corner. take your time and look inside the small gap with a flashlight to help figure it out. after you have the top of the dryer safely tilted back, look for 2 wires running to the door. they will plug into a switch that is flipped when you close the door completely. you know what i mean, it probably used to click when you shut the door. unplug these wires from either side of the switch. use a piece of wire to connect them or just tape the metal ends together. this will bypass the door switch. make sure all metal parts of the wires are covered to prevent a short on the metal walls. be sure the now loose wires will not get caught on anything, like a rotating drum. close the lid most of the way. turn on the breaker and try to operate the dryer. if it now works, replace the door switch. be careful, opening the door will not shut off the dryer now. good luck

Dryer stays on for 3 secs and turns off; sometimes won't turn on at all.


sometimes the movement will cause the door to open, thus shutting off the dryer. Does the door shut tight when you close it? there is a little clip that if broken, the door will pop open easily. After it shuts off is it easy to start again?
