Hello Master,

Yesterday I went to change the laundry, stopped the dryer by pulling the door open and it started to smoke with a bad burning smell.  I figure it was a lint fire in the cabinet.  Once I got the clothes out of the dryer, I shut the door and pushed the start button and appeared to run.  Since it was still smoking, I shut it down and uplugged.  Now, a day later, it will not start.:yikes:  When I push the start button I hear a click and a humming sound and it doesn't startup.   Please help...

THANKS in advance for your help!!!!!


Kenmore Series 90 Dryer - 110.70922990

by the model number,dryer is a 1990 model- average life for a dryer,yes,sounds like a motor failure,but you'll also need a drive system overhaul kit,a good cleaning and element likely reaching more than it's prime- time to buy is now.

We actually purchased the dryer new in 1999 from Sears.  Do motor's go out that quick?  It just seems odd that the motor went out right after small lint fire.  Are the two related?  Would a lint fire kill the motor?

Thanks!
