Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore model 62622

When I set the timer and hit the start button I either get a buzzing sound or the motor wants to go, but it will keep going. I opened the front door held down the switch to the door and it did the same thing. Could it be the start button?

Kenmore dryer problem


Good day,
Sounds very much like the motor is going bad. Very slim chance that the timer could cause that problem because of pitted contacts, but that would not explain away the noise when trying to start.
Here's a good tutorial if you want to replace the motor.

When I set the timer, the heat element comes on before I press the start button.


The element is actually grounding out through the timer. Time for a new timer.

Kenmore dryer doesn't start at all.


The start relay is the first place to look. It will be difficult to check components without a meter to check voltage.

Dryer drum will not turn.


Hello.

If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.

If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Gas dryer wont run


Hi. there can be many issue that can cause this type of interruption in normal operations. Lets go threw a few.One could be a faulty or dead motor. The timer board sends a signal to the motor once the start button is pushed. If the motor is malfunctioning or the wires that connect to the motor are lose or old and worn, the motor will usually click or buzz. the fault itself can be within the timer assembly or the motor itself. the best way to find out is to test the current flow at the motor by using a multimeter. connect this meter to the motor terminals and select the cycle and hit the start button. if the meter reads voltage at the motor and the motor clicks or buzzes, this will confirm an actual motor failure. if the voltage at the motor is weak or not there 0, this means the timer will need to be replaced. Next, I would check the door switch for its operational value. you can use the same method as i discussed above with the meter. use the terminals for testing on the switch. This could be a problem area as well. if the switch is malfunctioning, the dryer will not run at all. you will find the problem in one or both of the discussed areas above.


please rate and god bless.
