Kenmore Dryer model # 41781052000 Won't Come On

4 posts in this topic

Kenmore dryer model # 41781052000, Ser # XD13602489.

The dryer just makes a click noise when I try to start it. It won't come on all. The door switch does turn the light on & off, so I don't think the switch is broken.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a stuck or failed centrifugal switch in the motor.  Switch is not available separately, only with the replacement motor.

 

And there's also the thermal fuse located on the inside/rear/left cabinet wall above the heater.  Check the fuse for continuity.  If found open, replace fuse but also check the external exhaust vent for restriction and proper air flow.

Hmmm, the thermal fuse sounds promising.  I don't like the idea of having to replace the motor though.  I'll try the testing the switch & see what comes up.  Thanks for the advice!
