Hi and wlecome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Open the door and turn the drum by hand. Your checking to see if the belt is still around the drum and not broken. If it turns with little resistance the belt has broken and the belt safety switch will prevent the dryer from working.

Also listen for a door switch click just as the door opens and near the closed position. No click = bad door switch.

A bad start button relay wil also cause this.

Addiitionally if the dryer is full of lint and the one time fail thermal fuse / thermistor has opened from excessive heat due to lack of airflow it will not start.

Check around the lint filter, in the dryer exhaust duct and all the way through to the outside wall for lint obstructions.

Lastly a broken blower wheel hub will cause lack of air-flow and result in the thermal fuse failure.

If you want your model specific data, please repsond with your model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kelly

Dryer wont turn on


Lots of things it could be. I'd try the shut-off switch first.
There is a switch that is supposed to turn off the dryer when you open the door.
That switch is often made of plastic, and can break or even fall out inside the machine.
After that, I'd check the start switch to see if it failed.
Be blessed.

Circut breaker turned off then turned on dryer wont turn back on (kenmore serial #86982800)


i ve seen this in the field alot of times make sure you actually are getting full 220 to unit.. sometimes these dang breakers look like they are on but they fail to send full power back to unit... it is even happened to me in the field i go to turn power off to a customers unit and when i am ready to turn back on the breaker wont fully reset... check it out if it was working prior to the bresker turned off and you didn't operate on the dryer disconnecting or replacing anything this is your problem...

Check the door switch. It just might be sticking which is why the light remains on and the dryer won't spin...

Dryer wont tumble


i think the belt is slipping bad on your dryer,,
what puzzels me is you say you can here the motor hum? is it a hum? or a buzz?? if its a buzz then its more likley to be the motor as its past its best and it needs if it needs a new motor as well, it would work out cheeper to buy a new tumble dryer

Dryer wont work!


A couple suggestions: (1) The switch in the front may be bad. It's the switch that turns the dryer off when you open the door. (2) Make sure the door latch keeps the door shut. If it is worn and the door isn't shut tight, the switch will not let it start. Hope this helps.
