Question about Kenmore Dryers

The dryer push to start button starts the dryer when pushed but then the dryer shuts off immediately. Is this from over heating or could the control itself have gone bad?

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

Why does dryer run as soon as main button is pushed.


It can also be a bad relay on the the control board. This problem requires a tech to properly do a diagnostic, its not a simple problem for any technician.

When I push the start button the dryer starts but immediately shuts off when I release my finger from the start button


That's the start relay causing that. It is supposed to energize and stay pulled in to run.

Maytag Epic dryer won't start


hi there,

if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

Whirlpool dryer LGR7646EQ3. Burner lights before pushing start.


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot ignitor and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.

Dryer won't heat or stay going


one of two things; bad motor relay mounted on the control panel or bad even heat control (circuit board) mounted in control panel. Could be a bad motor switch but unlikely.hope this helps...
