Won t start sometime but sometimes will


Hi Bruce. It would help to have more details. Was this sudden, does it try to start, is it a vented dryer, what protection systems are built into it (overload for instance)?
Tumble dryers can fail to start for many reasons. Usual ones are water reservoir full, door switch faulty, water condensation inside, faulty start switch, faulty timer, motor brushes. Hope this helps:

My Kenmore Elite 110.62932100 won't tumble or heat up.


try the homes 240volt circuit breaker it may not show its tripped but one of the 2 phases can trip out, (just reset the breaker) and if this happens either the dryer drum motor will turn or the timer will run, but not both as these 2 components each use 1 of the 2 phases 120 volts to run,but the heating element needs both 120volt phases for 240volts for the heating element to heat,this is what your issue sounds like to me,hope this helps

Dryer wont shut off unless turned off and dryer just tumbles with no heat.


If it won't turn off or heat then it is probably the timer or if it is a newer unit the control board.

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Kenmore dryer 75731 won't tumble. It heats fine.


Hi.

The machhine is belt driven check the belt first.

If the motor is must be tested energizing it.

In all cases test the lid switch to ensure it is not opening contact when machine starts tumbling.

The wiring harness to motor must be tested.

If there is no other fault elsewhere, replace the timer board.

Start from the belt, if the machine is heating, then it is probably a broken belt.

Dryer wont start anymore


If the drum won't rotate, you may have a broken belt. I had a Kenmore and as I recall, you have to pull up the top section to see inside. Good luck.
