You will need to remove the front panel, unplug dryer, open dyer door remove screws from inside the door frame, with a flat tip screw driver gently pry up as it is clipped and it will pop up, you will need to disconnect the door switch and sit the front panel aside. The top of the dry will lift up, on the motor look for two switches.buttons one is a reset the other is a trip. you will hear a click when you reset it. hopefully this is the problem, if not then see if you can turn the drum, it should be hard to turn but turn all the same. Hope this helps tim

Kenmore electric dryer, won't start and clicks by time dry knob


usually the thermal fuse goes and dryer dies part number 3390719 located in front of dryer on top of the blower wheel housing,when you read anything out you have to pull one of the wires off to get correct reading.also on some of the dryers there is a switch on the pulley that will kill the dryer if the belt breaks

You have a bad thermal fuse , usually caused by lint blockage from the filter or vent hose .

Kenmore dryer not running


Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.

Kenmore 80 Series dryer won't start.


i see this all the time the dryer motor is simply to weak to kick in so it humms or sometime starts,a good test to do is flip the top up and push the start button and turn the drum at the same time and the motor should kick in,the dryer has no ball bearing it is on rollers,if you want you can check your local used appliance store and see if they have one or maybe ebay,your model number is inside the dryer door,so to sum it up it is the motor,let me know how you make out-mike

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Kenmore Electric Dryer 66812 clicking not starting


I hate to tell you this, but it is probably the timer. The good news is that it is easy to replace and you don't have to have a tech to do it.
