Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a kenmore problem with the Kenmore Dryer Model 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?

You could have a blown fuse because of a clogged vent or a bad thermistor. A thermistor is used by electronic controls to measure temp changes inside the dryer. If the sensor is open then the brain does not have a clue how hot the dryer is. So it shuts down. Repair clinic has an excellent thermistor replacement video.
