Question about Kenmore Dryers
Trip the circuit breaker or disconnect power cord for five minutes, so to reset the appliance.
If there is no power at all, reach the main outlet and the power cord and check them out if possible. Also check lint filter and replace the thermal fuse.
If the dryer is turning on but does not cycle, then replace the thermal fuse, then test the door switch, and finally go for the timer board.
The timer control board is expensive and control board failure are difficult to diagnose.
For this reason the timer board is replaced only after testing all other parts.
Test the door switch and on wiring harness/connectors to the electronic control board.
The door switch can be tested jumping its contacts.
If the main switch is not integrated on timer pcb, it can be tested reading ohms or jumping the switch, then turning back on circuit breaker.
Wiring harness and connectors are tested reading Ohms between two points to ensure that there is continity.
This operation must be done with power not connected.
If there is no problem concerning the wiring, door lock and timer, test quickly the heath group , motor, and rest of the wiring to ensure that the problem is not given by a contact that get lost at random times, then proceed in replacing the timer board.
