Dryer stopped working. Not spinning or anything


You will be needing someone with an electric meter, (an ohm meter or a multi-meter) to begin testing to find out if it is the dryer or the power source.
The one thing you could do is check the fuse panel or the circuit breaker box to see if a circuit breaker popped or a fuse blew.
The circuit breaker can be reset by flipping the handle a few times, a fuse would need replacement.
Other than that, an electric meter will tell if the plug socket is live or dead, and then the machine needs be taken apart to see which part has failed. Usually a fuse or a thermo-switch has popped inside the machine.
God bless your efforts.

The drum is turning but not heating up why?


It could be a bad heater, thermal fuse or if an electric dryer possibly one leg of your power is tripped and needs resetting at the circuit breaker on the house. Try flipping the ganged power breaker both off real hard and flipping them back on real hard and see if that restores the power to the dryer. If a gas dryer then the igniter or flame sensor could be bad.

My dry quite working after my was work in electric box he was flipping power on and off


Your dryer is a 220 appliance and should be on a circuit all by itself. Are the items in your circuit box labeled (Lights? kitchen, etc.) One should be labeled "dryer". If you cannot locate one that is labeled for your dryer, Check out the position of the circuit breakers. If the dryer breaker is turned off it will be in the oppoite postion of the others.Caution: DO NOT do what he did and begin flipping breakers! If your dryer breaker is in the off position,is you should be able to flip it back on. Before you do this, have the dryer turned off.

If this does not work, unplug your dryer and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes or so, so that the dryers' operating system can reset itself. Then try turning it back on.

We flipped the breakers in our fuse box to do some wiring, when we flipped breakers back--our electric dryer will not start, but the light is on inside the dryer when I open the door


Hello- I would check the dryer outlet and confirm you are getting 220V. As well, flip the dryer breaker on an off again (it should be a double style breaker, 2 singles linked) sometimes they are sticky. Let me know if it still doesn't work. Best regards.

Dryer wont turn on. Breaker in breaker box is fine. No light inside dryer. What's wrong?


Dryers run off 220v, and sometimes only one leg of the breaker trips. So you need to flip the breaker all the way off, and then back on. Sometimes the breaker feels off but is not fully reset. Make sure you completely trip it off then back on. Does the dryer light work now? Is there any indication that it's getting some power? If the breaker is fine and your still not getting power, then the next step is to make sure you have power coming to the plug behind the dryer. At this point you should only continue if your comfortable working with electricity. Once you move the dryer you can check the outlet with a meter, or other circuit tester. If you got power here, then you'll need to start checking things on the dryer. you can remove the plate where the cord goes into the dryer and look for loose or burnt wiring there. If that looks ok, then you'll need to start taking the dryer apart; front panel, top, back, etc, as needed to access the wiring and controls. From here you can trace the wiring from the supply to the controls and to the motor, etc. look for anything burn, If nothing looks out of place you can start checking temp sensors, or fusable links. If this is above your head, then stop where your not comfortable and have checked by a service technician.

Where are home fuses located on the kenmore dryer?


If you were told to check the home fuses its the circuit breaker for the house. If the house is older it may have a small circuit breaker just for the dryer. Otherwise open the circuit breaker for the house and look for the dryer fuse. Usually 2 20amp breakers together. Flip it off and push towards off a little more to reset than flip back on.
