Kenmore dryer stop working after a lightening storm. checked breakers appears ok, but when you push start switch after setting timer i hear humming noise coming from timer but dryer will not come on.


It is very possible the humming is not comming from the timer, but the motor. check the capacitor on the motor. it should be a 5 or 8 microfarad cap .replace it. Dont try and run motor like that anymore untill it is checked.
