This is a broken belt symptom. On some models when the belt breaks the idler drops down and hits a micro switch that kills power to the run windings. So that the motor won't run and cause the heater to come on. This is a safety feature. Post your model number for a more precise answer.

The Dryer won't start. Power light just flashes red on and off


There are too many problems that it could be, anything from the Button going bad, to the Door Shut Switch being defective, to the Motor, Relay inside the circuit board, to loose wire during the move, and the list goes on and on. Unless you can test each component that sends the START signal, nobody will be able to assist you with the information you have provided.

Kenmore 80 series electric dryer Model - 110-60882990 The dryer won't turn on. Once the start button is pushed it makes a single clicking noise. If I open/shut the door and push the start button...


check the actual door switch,, you can jumper it to see if this is the problem, Just connect the 2 wires together , if this cures the problem replace the switch

When I push the start button nothing happens; no "resistance" from the button, no clicking sound. Power is on as light inside dryer goes on.


Hi- Sounds like you just need a start switch but possibly a door switch (the dryer won't come on if it thinks the door is open). Depending on what model you have the start switches usually aren't too expensive and easy to replace. Just be SURE that the dryer is unplugged anytime you work on it. Hope this helps...

Just stopped working still has power-inside light comes on and timer makes noise when you turn dial but does not start when you push start button


This sounds like the door switch. But it could also be the non-resettable thermal fuse inside. Open the door, depress the door switch until it clicks, and while holding it in see if the dryer starts.

Dryer will not turn on. makes slight buzzing sound when button is pushed. Light goes on, power is on.


Sounds like the motor is gone. Try opening the door and pushing the door swithch inside the dryer door cavity.This may take two people but while holding the door switch, push the start switch and turn the dryer drum at the same time.(in a clock direction) If the dryer starts it means the moter is shot.

Dryer wont start


Push on the door switch and make sure the light goes out. When the light goes out, a contact should be made to allow the motor to run. If you can get to the timer, spray a good electronic contact cleaner inside while rotating the dial. While you have the unit open, vacuum out all the lint, and check for loose wires, especially to the door switch.
