Machine won't work. kenmore 90 series

I was in the middle of starting my laundry load and i had closed the door of my kenmore 90 series model # 110.4788291 and it suddenly started makin a ticking sound and it had a funny kind of burning smell and it wouldn't work after wards. I emptied the machine and manually drained out the water and turned everything off, and unplugged it, i than later plugged it back in and it wouldnt work, i turned of the fuse and back on again, still wouldn't work. i tried using different cycles and nothing works. No noise nothing. It doesn't work at all, it's obviously broken, but what can the problem be?

Might be a broken motor or a blown fuse. I would suggest having your machine looked at by a specialist. If it's old, you might consider replacing it.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on

On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.

the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

Kenmore electric dryer series 90 model 66904691 will not start. Dryed a load of clothes went to start again will not do anything , checked fuse box, fuse not blown what could be the problem

Check the automatic door shut off switch and wiring. When the door closes it actuates a switch (completes and electrical circuit) which allows the dryer to operate.
