Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer won't turn on

Older model Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 97283100 Stock 72831-- The dryer stopped working, and when I pressed the start button nothing is happening. I am thinking it may be the fuse, but am not sure where the fuse is located. Does anyone know where the fuse is located? Is this something I can fix myself?
Thanks,
A mom in direstraits :)

    I have the exact same problem with the exact model. It's 13 years old and it'selectric. You say that is probably the problem? I've replaced two heat thingys three years ago and a belt about 7 years ago.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?


Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

Knemore 80 series dryer won't start every time


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior

Kenmore Dryer


check also,
  • the other ends of all cables connected to the relay,
    if the other end of any part of the latching circuit has loosened, the relay will not latch closed when the start button is pressed.
  • Door Switch, it is part of the latching circuit
