I have an 800 series Kenmore dryer. Light bulb off and not working even though tested with ohm and getting power.


check the door switch for the safety ,, a multi meter can be used, or just connect the 2 points together with a jumper wire, that will bypass the switch so you can see if thats the problem,, if that checks out ok, check the actual start switch,, you can check it in the same manor

Kenmore 80 Series Gas Dryer wont turn back on after blowing fuse


Good day,
First, reverse the washer and dryer plugs in the outlet.
If that works, then the outlet needs changed.
If not,
The light switch is hot wired to the light circuit. Which means, if the machine is plugged in, the light will work.
Two possibilities.
1.The cord is bad, and needs replaced.
2. The light switch, which also runs the circuit to the motor is bad.
To access the switch, remove the lint filter, remove the 2 screws under it, then with a screw driver, pry up the top lid, one side at a time.
Lift the lid, but do not go above vertical. You will see the switch, and how to remove it.
You will need a VOM meter to test these items.
As well, make sure the machine is unplugged.

The following clip, at the beginning will get you started if you have to access the switch.

I have electric series 80 kenmore, all of a sudden it wont turn on, still getting power because light is on when door is closed. turns off when door opened. hit button and nothing happens at all.


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.
