    Hi,
    Sometimes you can bend it back enough for it to work but that is just a temporary fix it will bend again...
    You should look for a replacement and install a new one for a permenent fix...

I have a Kenmore 400 series top loading electric dryer that just stopped working right in the middle of a load of clothes. It was working just fine and then it just stopped. Now it will not turn on at...


Hi there....this sounds to be like you blew the breaker. Go to your breaker panel in your house and search out the fuse for the dryer. This will be a double 110 volt breaker. You need to reset both sides to be sure. It is easily locatable as they almost always have the items listed on the inside of the door of the panel. If this works for you great. Please try to remember to click on the yes box on your way out ...thank you and good luck.

Dryer was working the just stopped and won't start back


check your main breaker box first, see if it tripped, if the breaker looks okay then turn off the breaker for the dryer and reset the breaker switch, if this still doesn't work then a fuse has popped on the circuit board.

Dryer has just stopped working, no power what so ever.


Check the timer switch. All the power goes through that switch and they do fail over time. If that isn't the source of the problem, then check the door switch. When they fail, just like a top-load washer door switch, NOTHING will work because it senses the door is open even when it's closed. Those are two most obvious things and the easiest to check.

Hope that helps!
