Will not spin to high some times and dryer just clicks and will not start


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The click that you hear comes from dryer when either the Thermal fuse or the Timer is bad. If you hear this click from the rear panel then it is the Thermal fuse that is bad, if the click is coming from the control then Timer motor needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

Kenmore 80 series washer wont spin


Sounds to me like you may have a lid switch bad. If you close the lid and don't hear that click then you can be sure that you have a bad lid switch. If it is bad your machine is thinking that your lid is up and so it won't do any washing or spinning. Replace the lid switch.

Kenmore 70 Series


The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.

Dryer wont run


Hi there,
Well most gas dryers have one thermal fuse and some have two thermal fuses wired in series with the motor. If any of the thermal fuses are blown that could be one of the reasons of your dryer not starting. So first of all you may check out the fuse.

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!
