Have you check go see it you are getting a full 220v to the dryer, assuming it's electric. If there's only one leg of the power the control power would come on, but nothing else would work.

Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

When I push start nothing happens First it was


The symtom your describing is that of a worn or loose belt. There is a belt safety switch on the motor mount that is actuated by the travel of the idler arm. If the belt is worn stretched or broken the dryer will not start because the belt safety switch has actuated.

This is a matter of changing the dryer belt. In the process of the belt change check the drum felts front and rear for excessive wear, Worn drum felts / seals can losen the belt so the idler travels to tighten the loose belt and can cause the belt safety switch to be activated. .

BEFORE you go directly to the belt as the problem check the door switch. You should hear and audible CLICK as the door just opens or closes. No CLICK = no start. I.e bad door switch.

There are a few other possibilities but these are the 2 most common. If none of the above is related to your dryer or you need more assistance please respond with your dryers' make and model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have everything set properly. When I push the knob to start the cylce nothing happens. I have a magic chef Model #YE20JN5 I have cleaned the lint trap. I have made sure my door is closed properly.


first thing to check is if the belt broke, as the safety switch would shut every thing down. you can check by removing bottom front cover , or if it doesnt, place machine on its side and look under

Hum but wont start


The slight hum you are hearing is the start windings in the motor. This is a common problem in the kenmore dryers and there is nothing you could have done to keep it from happening. the part number on the motor is 279827 and price from sears is $105.99.

Kenmore electric dryer won't start


The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.
