Kenmore Elec. Dryer Model # 110.87562602 Nothing happens when I hit the start button

9 posts in this topic

I was given this dryer cause it didnt work and i feel that I can fix it. All of the buttons and lights work except when you push the start button, nothing happens. What could this be. I have the control panel off and nothing "looks" burned or out of ordinary.

If it is powering up three things to check first

1. Door switch

2. Thermal fuse

3. broken belt (has a belt switch)

The door switch is clicking when pushed. the belt is on and spinning the drum freely by hand. Need help on the Thermal Fuse.

Check for continuity on door switch and thermal fuse. Thermal fuse is the white usually about 1" long fuse attatched to the blower housing. Also check push to start or turn to start switch for cont. as well.Make sure it opens and closes.

check your Venting System

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
NO plastic
NO PVC
NO screws
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.
