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.

Nothing happens when I push the power button on the front panel of NAD917 Preamp. Any idea why? Is there a way to reset the box?


Probably a fuse in the unit. Unplug it and open it. If you see a blown fuse, take it out and look at the writing on the metal part. buy a fuse with the same power ratings.

its not the timer its your thermal fuse located in the back of the dryer behind the panel if not there it will be in the front at the bottom behind that panel. Its usually placed on the vent outlet housing.

Nothing happens when you push the start button. I have checked the breaker already


Sounds like your door switch has gone bad. 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. Here is a video on the door switch. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. Here is a video on the thermal fuse.
Happy Holidays!

Push Button to start and nothing happens.


Hi, The first thing you want to check is that the dryer has power to it. Then check the non resetable fuse. On most models the fuse is located in back of the dryer behind the rear panel.
Once you remove the rear panel, you will see the fuse located on the blower housing (White in color). Take continuity on the fuse. If the fuse has continuity, it is ok. If you an not access the fuse from the back, remove the front lower panel and the fuse is again located on the blower housing.
Other possibilities are door switch, timier, & motor. The fuse is most common problem!!
If I can help further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Nothing happens when I push the start button on my Gas Dryer


Three things you can check the door switch is it clicking? The thermal fuse you want to make sure there is continuity or worse case would be your motor.

I have a very old roper dryer (11 yrs), it quit mid cycle. It ticks when I set the timer but nothing happens. The on button quit along time ago but when you shut the door it would start. Today nothing...


You've got an open circuit somewhere in the loop betwixt the start button, the "safety" button actuated by the door, and the motor/heat coils. Trace out those circuits and you'll have that thing running in no time.

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!
