Dryer wont start

As long as you're sure it is plugged in to an outlet that has power (make sure the breaker is not tripped), there are 2 things that keep a dryer from starting. There is a switch that needs to connect by the dryer door being closed. and there is a switch on the belt tensioner that shuts the dryer off when the belt breaks, and will not allow it to restart until the belt is replaced. Check the drum drive belt to see if it is broken, that is the most likely cause.

Older Kenmore dryer model 86568110 wont start, i can see the heat element glowing but after pushing start button nothing happens.

Sounds like a broken belt. Do not continue to turn the dryer on until belt is replaced. With no air blowing over them, could overheat and cause a fire or burn them out.

Clothes dryer wont turn

Check your belt. I actually heard my belt break, it was running at the time. We ordered the right belt, replaced it & it worked fine. You can find the instructions on how to replace it online. Now I have another problem, it won't start, I think it is the switch connected to the start button.

Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.
