Is the motor trying to start? Is there power to its outlet?If it is gas try plugging something else into the outlet to check for power. If it is electric turn the breaker off for ten minutes then turn breaker back on again and try the machine. If you have a volt meter you could check the outlet for power that way. If the motor is running when you push start but the drum isn't turning than you probably have a broken belt. Is the door all the way shut? If so you could have a broken switch at the door. To check the switch would require opening the machine case and using an ohm meter to check the switch. The last thing it might be is the timer. If it is an older (ten or more) unit and it is the timer then it might make more dollars and sense to get a new machine.

Circuit breaker tripped, i reset it and the dryer read PF, cleared that...but now the dryer just beeps when youy hit any button like start. The dryer is a kenmore h3 gas dryer


try resetting the breakers again as they may have tripped again as sometimes they only move a bit and they look like they are ok but they are not.I would also unplug the dryer for thirty seconds to reset it and start again.

Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior
