Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

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.

Dryer won't start


IT SOUNDS TO ME AS IF YOU HAVE A BAD DOOR SWITCH. YOU CAN TRY JUMPING THE SWITCH OUT TEMPORARILY JUST TO SEE IF THE UNIT RUNS.

Kenmore dryer electric doesnt start


It sounds like the dryer drum belt is broken

there is a drive belt that goes all the way around the dryer drum and when you press start the drum starts turning unless teh belt is off or broken

You can change the belt or call and have service technician change it

Faulty Start Button?


If the dryer doesn't even start to turn when you press the start button, then you have to look at a couple things; The start button itself, the starting relay or the safety circuit. You mentioned that there's a ticking sound... if this sound goes away when you open the dryer door but comes back again when the door is closed, then the safety circuit is working.

It could be the switch itself or the starting relay (if equipped with one). If you're mechanically capable, consider looking at the relay. See if the contacts are being pulled in when the start switch is pressed (DANGER: HIGH VOLTAGE). If it is, the start switch is OK.

Hope this helps.
