Question about Kenmore 500 6952 Dryer
The light comes on in drum but the dryer wont start is there a reset switch on the motor if there is i can not get to the motor. i think it over heated because when the timer runs out it doesn't auto shut off like it should it continues going so i forgot to turn it off when i went to work the other day when i came home it wouldn't turn back on someone told me there is a reset switch on the motor but i cannot get to the motor
Most of these dryers have a thermal fuse that shuts the dryer down when it over heats and it is not resetable. most of these on a kenmore are on the back of the dryer. locate the thermal fuse and use an ohm meter to tell if it has continuity or not. no continuity - replace it.
also if your dryer is over heating one of the most common causes is a crimped vent hose or pipe. don't use plastic hose as it crimps shut easily and won't let the heat out of the dryer causing the problem you described.
