Disconnect the dryer from its power source before servicing!

Inspect for a brokren drum belt. The humming noise is probably the motor running with no belt. You can easliy identify this by opening the dryer door, rotate the drum by hand by using a baffle as a gripping point. If the drum rotates freely, the belt is gone. If you feel a slight degree of resistance or drag, then you will have to go internal to inspect for the belt and associated rollers and idler pulley to make sure they are free rolling.

Our Kenmore Elite HE4 gas dryer will not start although all controls on front are lite and appear to be functioning properly (settings can be changed, etc). I has been working fine for several hours until...


check the door switch and door latch. Open door, set the dryer to air fluff cycle, and manually depress the door switch. Press start button. If it started - door needs alignment to fix it.
If it did not start:
If your dryer has light inside - check if light turns off when you press the switch. If not - switch needs replacement.
If all that checks out ok - the problem is more serious, and you might need a tech to come out and diagnose it.

Kenmore Elite 73942 Gas Dryer only runs with start button held


Unplug the dryer. Open the control console.Mark and remove the wires from the start switch.
Using a volt meter set for continuity,touch meter leads to R1 and R2 while pushing the switch. No reading is a bad switch.
Touch meter leads to R2 and CT1. No reading is a bad switch.
If the switch checks out good the start windings in the motor are bad.

Dryer turns on, but does not run


Try to turn the drum inside with no clothes in it, does it turn freely both ways?

Then as someone is holding the start button, hold the door switch button, then try to turn the drum counter-clock wise, and see if it will start turning on its own.

If it does start turning, then the motor is more than likely the problem.

If it dosen't then the timer is more than likely the problem.

Kenmore elite he4 dryer wont run


Hi! crystal2hd
My he3 dryer does not have a door lock. The door switch turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. Make sure this switch is not damaged. Unplug the dryer before removing the front cover.

Kenmore elite gas dryer


Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.

Dryer isn't turning


This could be one or two things, it could be the safety switch located in door that activates the turning of the dryer. Or it could be a belt that turns the drum the motor could be turning inside and belt is broken.
