Question about Kenmore 63952 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Start Button will start dryer but won't stay on!

We have a Kenmore 63956 Dryer. When I press the Start Button the dryer comes on (and is tumbling) however, when I release my finger it shuts off!

I've checked to see if the dryer door is closed properly and tightly .. it appears it is. The sensor in the door is working.

Help!

Thanks!
Lisa

    oldfixer! You Rock!

    We did exactly as you mentioned... the problem is the control bd! We took it out and we're working on ordering a new one!

    Thanks so much!

    You certainly made our day :)

    Where can I get a new board?

    Push in the start button and the drum starts rolling, but as soon as you remove your finger from the button, it stops. We're trying the relay/board advice given to Lisa.



    Thanks.

I have a similar problem with my Kenmore P/N # 3391522. I start the unit and about 5 seconds after it shuts off. I can keep pressing the button each time it stops but after 4 times the dryer will not come back on for a few minutes. I have taken the motor out and started checking for continuity on wire to make sure none were broken. Can someone please help?

Thanks
Richard
