Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore elite dryer 11063942101 works if I force the switch to stay in the on position but won't start by just pressing the switch. Replaced pust-to-start switch. Same problem. Vacuuming out the areas inside the dryer didn't help and they were pretty clean. The motor was self contained? I think along with the fan wheel in a plastic housing. Could remove cover but didn't see motor. Could a relay switch be bad at the control panel? I ran the manufacturer's test and everything signaled correctly except the buzzer volume, although the buzzer works. Is motor replacment my only option now? Thanks, Craig

The problem is definitely not the motor but rather the motor relay or the electronic control. Either the motor relay is not working to close the motor circuit or the electronic control is not powering up the motor relay to serve its function.

The motor relay and the heater relay are identical and can be used interchangeably. The heater relay may be used in place of the motor relay if the dryer heats up when the start switch is held on. It indicates that the heater relay is working.

Disconnect power to the dryer then pull the end cap trims off then remove the control panel securing screws. Once the screws are removed, rotate the control panel up to the rear of the dryer.

Disconnect the wires and remove the relays then put each in the place of the other. Refer to the component layout diagram for the location ofkenmore elite dryer 11063942101 works - cb4fbf7.jpg.

Reconnect the wires then rotate the control panel down back into position then plug the dryer in and start it. The dryer should start and continue to run when the start switch is released since the working heater relay is used but will not heat up indicating that the motor relay is not working. Otherwise the fault is in the electronic control.

Replace the faulty component and it should address the problem. The relay (heater/motor) is part number
3405281 and the electronic control is part number .

Squeeze on the electronic control mounting bracket as shown then pull the board up to remove.

Insert the new control board and gently press it down into position. Transfer the wires from the old board to the new board one at a time.

Simply unscrew the relay to be replaced then secure the new one into position and transfer the wires.

Rotate the control panel down and secure it back into position to complete the repair.

I have a Kenmore elite when I pick setting then push start it click but don't start u here it click when u press start what could it be


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Dryer won't stay on without the button held in


Most likely the motor relay or the even heat board is bad.

Kenmore elite dryer model #110.63952102 start button wont stay on everything else works


I have the same problem with my Kenmore Elite dryer (model#110.74992300), and I replaced both the motor and heater relay and the problem solved. You can get the relay from www.mouser.com for $3 each. The model for the relay is T9AP1D52-48. You may want to open up the dryer to verify the relay model, it is printed on the relay.
