Question about Kenmore 63932 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Dryer Starts, then stops as soon as I release the button.

My Kenmore Elite #63932 Electric Dryer will start to turn over when I push the start button, but as soon as I release the button, the dryer stops. Do you think it is a fuse or motor relay? I just replaced the Even Heat Control Assembly because there was a burned circuit. The same problem still exists though. Thank you for your help.

Its possible the dryer heat selector is at fault. If the timer inside does not move to the end of the heat cycle you may have further problems. Depending on how old the dryer and how long it has taken to dry garments, you may want to check that the motor has not gone bad causing an electrical overload. Faulty timers will cause extended drying times eventually putting a strain on the motor's bearings and electrical windings. You may want to get a replacement or get a repair estimate to repalce the belt, motor, drum rollers and heating coil components.

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

Dryer starts and then quits


You have a faulty heat safety switch. This switch prevents the dryer from overheating and causing fire. Some dryers have as many of 4 of these switches (seems redundant but it prevents fire) Depending on how confident you are with repairs the back of the dryer can be removed and the switches can be replaced. Most of them are circular and are found along the dryer exhaust area. I do recommend that this repair be done by a professional if you do not have allot of experience yourself because of the safety factors involved. Good Luck!!!

Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released


there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
