I have voltage to dryer, door switch checks good, start switch checks good, but dryer will not start. What can I check next?

Check the continuity of the thermal fuse located on the blower housing. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and once blown, power to the motor is terminated and the dryer will not start. Also the power to the heating circuit is activated through the motor centrifugal switch. The dryer will therefore not heat once the motor cannot run.

Disconnect power then access the thermal fuse on blower housing.

Dryers with lint filter on the top.

You can bypass the thermal fuse for troubleshooting purposes by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate the connection properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the cycling thermostat if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Let us know if you need further advice but indicate the exact model number of the dryer.

Kenmore dryer dryer model 110.67042600. Won't start. Has power


Check your receptacle to make sure that you have 220v, with 110v on each of 2 legs. The dryer operates some things off of one hot lead, and some off of the other. Your motor circuit sounds like it's on the other.
If the receptacle checks good, check your wiring connections at the terminal strip in the back of the machine wher the cord connects.

Best regards,

I attempted to locate an answer to resolve the issue for you, but your model number came back as invalid. Please recheck your model number, and follow the link that I provided. This will allow you to view exploded diagrams and provide parts images, cost, and shipping details.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.
