    I used it all weekend it dried fine. I went to put another load push the button I can hear a click click but no action. I checked breaker and it was not tripped. I am wondering if its the motors it self that could cost as much as a new dryer correct.

    Kenmore Model 110 dryer won't turn on.  When I push the start button there is a click and I can hear the timer buzzing faintly, but other than that, nothing.  There is power to the dryer as the light turns on inside when opening the door.  The door interlock works as the light turns off when I push it.  The breaker is not tripped.

    dooor was opened and closed then the dryer will not start. house breaker is ok. is the switch in the door bad or possibly a breaker in the dryer itself

    i have the same problem but a little different. The light comes on in the well but pressing any button on the panel doesnt turn on the dryer. Whats weird is we have called repair twice ... then the next day when the repairman shows up ... he hits any button and it comes on. Any one got a clue why this is happening?

Dryer will not start upon pushing the start button.


the motor is more than likely bad but just to be safe check the blower wheel and make sure there is not anything in it then remove the belt and try to turn motor if the motor feels real tight then you need to replace the motor

80 series front load dryer will not turn.


It almost has to be the belt as the heating element won't come on without the motor turning.
