Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore dryer, 2 yrs. old. Out of the blue, when you push the ON button nothing happens. Trouble Shooting from my manual- everything it could be is ok. One strange thing- the light is staying on even when the door is closed............ It is Model # 110-86752501 Kenmore Series 70. Any clues?

The drum light staying on gives us a clue to the problem.
The door switch controls the drum light as well as power to the timer for the machine to start.
Since the light is on with the door closed,that meabs the door switch is defective.
It must be replaced .
The dryer will most likely start and run after door switch replacement.
If not,remove the rear panel and locate the thermal fuse on the left side of the exhaust vent and replace it.
It is about 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inches wide and white in color.
Do the door switch first.

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

The start button works like a push-on switch that engages the timer switch. It's all one unit. It isn't engaging because the internal lever the engages the switch is either broken or worn out. The start timer/switch will need to be replaced.

Wont start


try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
