There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

10 year old sears kenmore elite dryer, PF light will not stop flashing even after holding start for 10 seconds or after holding stop button for 10 seconds


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Drain light is flashing


Hi,

Check the motor for worn brushes and or noisy bearings while it is removed for service. Any auto mechanic should have experience replacing brushes and bearings. Much cheaper than ordering a new motor. New brushes and bearings should cost around $30.

Thanks

Dryer heats for a bit then stops.


Looking in the wrong place. i see this 3 to 4 times a week. you have a bad motor. Motor will continue to run if the gas does not light. Just like it runs on air only. The motor stops due to internal switch that keeps it from catching on fire. Sorry someone put you on the wrong track but you will need to replace the motor.
Please rate this solution if helpful.

Kenmore Dryer won't stay running


You need a new thermal fuse. The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover. This fuse cannot be re-set. Replace if open (there is no continuity between terminals). Part number is AP3132867. It is a Whirlpool part but it is the one that fits most if not all Kenmore/Whirlpool dryers.

Bob, glad you stopped the check, sounds like you need a even heat board. If you press and hold the start button the unit will run. As soon as you release it it stops. Tell the pro you would like a refund. Your part number is 3402605. The board is easy to replace. check out the pic. Catriver
