Question about Kenmore 64892 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Our dryer stopped working in the middle of a load. Now when I press the start button the timer does nothing but click. I am not sure but I thought it might be the push start button was faulty. Any ideas?

Hi,

  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • 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.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

with your door open have some one try and turn the dryer on while you hold the button in and turn the drum by hand to get it started.
if it starts the your motor may just have lint build up around it causing the contacts to be dirty.
there is a couple of other things that might have gone wrong the main control board has gone bad or the door switch, motor has gone out

Dryer stopping in middle of cycle but timer continues to run.


oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced

it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish

not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it

( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )
