Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 110.69912990 Our dryer just died today. :( When we push the start button nothing happens. We checked the fuses and when I opened the front panel it's just this huge drum covering all the wires. So we unplugged the dryer and waited for a couple of hours. I plugged it back in and when I pressed the start button this time it wanted to work, but again nothing happened. I tried to check the door to see if the lock wasn't letting the dryer start, but that seems just fine. Also, the light inside the dryer still works when it is plugged in. Any suggestions on what I should do to narrow down the problem?

Need more info. Check voltage at outlet. Check thermal fuse,
check thermal cut-off assy. Then you have question -what caused the thermal to fail? There are several.

Hum but wont start


The slight hum you are hearing is the start windings in the motor. This is a common problem in the kenmore dryers and there is nothing you could have done to keep it from happening. the part number on the motor is 279827 and price from sears is $105.99.

Kenmore 80 series electric dryer wont start


Push the button manually and see if the light goes off . If it does , then the problem is the thermal fuse (a white slim piece of plastic with 2 wires connected to it ) located on the blower housing beneath the drum .
