Old Kenmore Dryer can't turn-off and won't heat


Look like you need a timer control
model number should start with a 110. number timer for your dryer is about $70

My whirlpool dryer was working fine then I heard a pop noise then dryer shut off


it sounds to me like a wire came loose and shorted out or popped fuse!!! Check your breaker box and if the breaker is not blowed or flipped, then you probably need to replace the dryer fuse!!!

We were turning our drum and heard a loud pop sound; plus the clothes hadn't gotten dry.. the lights and everthing shows up but the dryer won't start up now


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Samsung front load dryer will turn on but not spinning or drying. I was wiping it out and turning the drum I heard a snap sound.


I was cleaning mine and doing the same thing last night. Washed a load of clothes tonight and went to dry them and everything works on it except it won't spin or heat. Heard the same type of popping noise last night cleaning it out. Have you found any solutions? Mine is just over a year old. I did some reading and thing that the dryer belt came off its assembly possibly. Have you found a solution?

Old whirlpool dryer, replaced heati element, hearda pop no power


Sounds like you have a direct short to ground. Could be a timer problem or a motor problem or a wiring problem.. Best to call a reputable service company such as Sears.

Dryer was running with full load of clothes. Heard a loud pop twice, ran back to the laundry room and smelled like something burning. Turned dryer off, and now it won't start back. Also, the very top of...


Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?

Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.
