Water light on


Hi,

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:


Power from the house 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.

Door switch 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.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring 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.

Sounds like you need to replace your electrical breaker in the main control box of the house that feeds the dryer. You should get 120volt on each leg coming into the dryer. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thanks

It will not turn on. Has been used before and suddenly wouldn't work. The inside light works - so we know it is getting power. The timer for the timed dry ticks, so that part is working. But it does not...


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Kenmore 70 series stopped in middle of drying and won't work now


If your dryer is not getting power there are some things that can cause this problem,
No house power supply going to the dryer,it could be a tripped breaker or blown fuse depending on which kind of electrical panel you have.
A bad or defective door switch, if the door switch does'nt work the dryer will not run.
The power cord connected to the dryer could have a Broken or burned connection at the dryers teriminal block.
If the thermal fuse is blown the dryer will not dry or it may not work at all.
If the timer is bad you might have to call a appliance repair man.
