Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a kenmore 110.79722800 gas dryer. It used to simply buzz when I pushed the start button and I would have to manually turn the drum while holding the door switch to get it started. It has since stopped buzzing and will not start at all. Any ideas what needs to be fixed?

Start switch buzzes and won't start the dryer

I had possibly a similar problem with a Kenmore 90 electric dryer. Sometimes pushing the start button would just make a buzzing sound, but the drum would not turn.
I ended up replacing the motor and so far it seems to start up smoother and quicker. In the process of taking it apart, there was a surprising amount of lint piled up in front of the blower intake. This is after the lint screen and not really possible to get to without taking off the lower front panel and then removing the duct to the blower. Perhaps it was dragging on the blower and causing the motor to overheat. Worth looking at first, perhaps.

Basic order of troubleshoot - gas dryer, electric on (light on when opened), won't rotate or start, hear buzzing when pushing button. No section for Kenmore 70901 gas dryer on this site. I want basic order...

Buzzing as in end cycle tone? That would indicate a stuck switch on the motor and freeing it would buy time until new motor could be installed. Low humm as in motor is stuck and cannot turn would require removing belt and see if motor is stuck, drum is stuck or something in exhaust fan holding it back.

Dryer won't start

The problem is likely a malfunctioning centrifugal start switch in the motor.

Dryer drum will not turn.


If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.

If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.
