Kenmore Dryer fuses

Dryer would not start when start button was pushed. Did beep but now does not. We have already taken off the fuses and thermostat. How does one test them with a digital multimeter?

Don't worry about the thermostats they wont stop the drier from running set your meter to continuity should have a wave symbol on it touch the leads of the meter together to make sure its working should read zero then touch the leads to each end of the component and if it reads ol or open its bad any time you take a component reading you must make sure at least one side of the component is unplugged to prevent getting a false reading

I have a Kenmore 70 series. About 10 years old. The inside light comes one, the timer ticks when turned but nothing happens when I push the start button. We have already checked the breaker. Is there...


you either have a blown thermostat, blown thermal fuse, or a bad heating element most likely a blown thermostat

email me if you need more help in replacing or testing

Dryer wont start when button is pushed.the thermal fuse was tested (good) the high limit thermostat was replaced as with the thermal cutoff. I did notice an abnormality on the cap of the electronic control


Did you check the door switch? Electronic control could be an issue but start with the basics and you have covered most of them already... good job.

When I press the start button, the dryer does not run


Is this a colipso dryer, I think that is how you spell it? If so then yes it very well could be a control board.

Dryer won't start due to delay button lights up and won't go off


1. No power to the dryerMake sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Dryer stpped working


with power disconnected
if any wire disconnected before any test, reconnect & test dryer, reconnect wires after each test
disconnect wires from start button and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace start button test dryer
disconnect wires from door switch and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace door switch test dryer
follow leads from start button to relay(relay is first device connected to start button), and make sure all wires connected at both ends. If any wires disconnected, test dryer
locate thermostats and thermal fuses on fan housing and ducts
individually disconnect wires from each and test. conduct good, no conduct fail
replace any failed thermal fuse or thermostat test dryer
if all prior test OK
replace relay, test dryer

Dryer will not start


If if "hums" like the motors is working you drive belt may have broken. If it makes no noise other than the click it could be a blown thermal fuse (there can be several) or a seized motor.
