Make sure first that you have 240 volts to the machine from the house power panel, if so,then it could be a drum belt broken the dryer motor isnt turning or the dryer drum idler tensioner pulley is bad or the belt is off the pulley on either the motor or idler,you need to remove the top and front covers to examine this

Timer does not tick and dryer does not reverse direction


The timer not moving is a sure sign it needs replaced. Fortunately replacing it is easy. Just search for your make and model dryer and order the timer. Remove the power, the back panel with the timer, the knob on the timer, and just a couple of screws and it's out. One by one move wires from old timer to new, install the reverse as taking it out. Put the knob back on, and the back panel. Plug it in, and you should be golden.

Ah, I just saw you answered in your own question! Good job! :-)
Anytime the drum turns, with or without heat, and the timer makes noises, doesn't move, has to be wiggled to start, or the start position changed, you can bet it's the timer. We just don't want to take a risk because it's one of the most expensive parts to replace, usually the motor costs a bit more, but seldom go out. Don't waste time troubleshooting other parts if any of the above applies, it's usually the timer.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Kenmore 70 series dryer control/timer knob doesn't turn when running


THE TIMER HAS A SMALL DRIVE MOTOR THAT TURNS THE TIMER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR DIFFERENT CYCLES AND VARIES FROM BRAND TO BRAND BUT EITHER WAY YOU MUST REPLACE THE TIMER , EXPENSIVE FIX IF THE DRYER IS WORTH IT THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM

Dryer won't start, Simpson Eziloader 4kg


Yes, the knobs don't like to be turned counterclockwise. Spin the knob clockwise to reinstall tightly, then move to set a dry time. Make sure half load button is pressed.

My Push Start Relay or Control Knob is not starting the Dryer


is this the even heat model? if it is you need a new control board on the back of the timer area and might as well buy a couple relays the black ones with 4 wires in them. one is for the pts and the other is a heater relay both are the same part
