Can you turn drum by hand? If so you probably need a motor.

SOURCE: Push to Start switch does not Start Kenmore Elite Dryer Mod # 11065944401

A likely cause is failure of the relay.
the start switch provides a current to energise a relay,
the relay latches open (draws energize current from switched circuit) until current path is broken by the timer or door switches.
if the wires have come off the relay(happens) or the coil of the relay has failed, there will be no start.

With plug pulled
trace the wires from the start switch, to the first device, looks like this 8fc4980.jpgmay be opaque. if any of the wires have come off refit them and retry start.
relay diagram looks like this 5a14628.gif test with meter for conduct between terminals labelled 85 86 (or Coil in other labelling standard),

or take to appliance parts store, can test and provide replacement on site.
Appliance part store will likely provide part labelled whirlpool, not a problem all the small parts are interchangeable

NOTE dryer relay may have up to 8 terminals,
2 for coil
3 (open close common) for each phase

In all probability, you have an open thermal fuse in your dryer or ( depending on the model) you may have a motor switch that is not making the circuit remain on. These switches use centrifigal force ( when the motor rotates up to speed ) to keep it on so that you can release the start switch. Hope that helps..

SOURCE: my dryer will not start when button is pushed. There is a ticking sound in the back when I push the button to start it

Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicksand clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuseis an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

My kenmore elite dryer model 110 63032102 won't turn on


Check the door switch. Push it by hand and you should hear it click. If no click is heard, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is OK, then the only other problem will be with the thermal fuse located on the rear of the machine. Here is a link to that part.

Kenmore elite electric dryer--Model # 110666962501-king size capacity purchased 2007 for a family of two. When I press the start button I hear a faint sound and the dryer will not start.


Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Most common cause is a partially or fully clogged dryer exhaust vent makes the dryer overheat and trips the high temp limit fuse. Brush out the vent all the way to the outside.

You have a bad thermal fuse , usually caused by lint blockage from the filter or vent hose .

Kenmore dryer not running


Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.
