    Won't start, before it stoped working it would continue to run after it was turned off. I replaced the thermal fuse but it still does not turn on.

Kenmore electric dryer light is on in tumbler. When I push start button nothing happens. I checked my breaker and connections all look fine. I replaced dryer with a used Gibson electric dryer worked great for about 2 weeks and same thing happened. I push the start button and it clicks over to the timer switch but tumbler does not turn. I know what your thinking, breaker or bad outlet connections. That is not it everything looks good at the box and outlet. Jimbob.

Try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning

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.
