The button mechanism that recognises a closed door may have gotten jammed. I would suggest opening the front cover of your dryer and locating the button to check and make sure it is functioning.

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

The dryer would not start unless you hit the door handle to shut the dryer door very hard. This eventually led to the strike breaking. I replaced the strike and catch in the door but the dryer won't...


You had to slam the door on it because the connections inside the dryer door switch were going bad. But now with it not working at all the door switch has completely gone out. Depending on which appliance repair company you get the part from it should be around $20-30.

Dryer will not start. Drum is very hard to turn. Seemed to running OK last night


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

How to replace door switch on old kenmore stac.dryer 110.88752792


Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.Check online for the part repairclinic.com has it for $14.00 not bad

Switch in the door!


The latch needs replaced and/or the door has bent hinges. Light pressure is more indicative of the latch.

Code dr keeps popping up even if the door is shut and the dryer will not turn on


It means that the door switch is making a bad connection. You should look around near the door switch for loose parts or wires. If everything seems tight, perhaps replace the door switch

Brand new Kenmore Front load won't work


It sounds like the plug is mis-wired. The panel works off of 110v but the rest is 220v. If one line is swapped with the ground you will get 110 only.
