Question about Kenmore Dryers
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.
