The Dryer won't start. Power light just flashes red on and off


There are too many problems that it could be, anything from the Button going bad, to the Door Shut Switch being defective, to the Motor, Relay inside the circuit board, to loose wire during the move, and the list goes on and on. Unless you can test each component that sends the START signal, nobody will be able to assist you with the information you have provided.

Kenmore 70 series dryer problem


HI. This may be an issue concerning the pressure switch that is located inside the rim of the actual door.

This switch activates the main drum motor when a cycle is selected when you are ready to dry your clothes. As soon as you select the desired cycle and you load the clothes and shut the door, the last thing to do is push the start switch. if the door pressure switch is malfunctioning, it will not allow you to start the dryer. it will simply not spin.

If you can visibly see the light inside the drum/basket while the door is closed, this will confirm the malfunctioning pressure switch that is located inside the inner part of the door rim.

Its located in this position so that the actual door can make contact with it, in return, applying pressure to close the switch and complete the circuit. this will cause the dryer to spin.

You stated that you can see the drum light shinning when the door is closed and, this will confirm my diagnosis. You can preform a hard reset just to make sure of this defect. Simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes or, shut down the circuit breaker for 5 minutes as well. Any methods will work. Once the 5 minutes are up, simply plug back in this unit and try to run a normal cycle. if this problem is still and issue, it will once again confirm a door pressure switch failure and you will need to replace the switch in this unit.

I would check the wire clips and connectors as well located on this switch for lose or worn contacts. this can be a problem spot as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

Dryer wont start


http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208522243.pdf

if possible, with the door open, push the limit switch the door normally hits to let the drier know the door is shut. That switch may be bad.
