Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...


The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

You have answered this question before but does the ignitor stay on during the drying cycle? Kenmore series 80, model 110 72822101 gas, It starts correctly, ignitor glows, gas ignites,run for 5 to 6 min....


Hi,
yes..

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer wont turn on


Howdy: The main electric motor has a built in circuit breaker. Check to see if it needs reset. If it did blow then something else is the trouble.
The start button (switch) turns on the motor which starts the drum and
turns on the ignitor to start the element for heat. Need more info after you check the motor. It also could be the on/off switch - Good luck - Doug
