kenmore dryer 592-89427 won't start tumbling

Recommended Posts

When the start button is pushed, the dryer makes a "buzzing" sound but it doesn't start spinning. 

If you open the door,  manually spin the drum and then  try again, the dryer will start.  Sometimes it may take several tries but it does eventually start. 

After it starts, it doesn't seem to have any problem starting and stopping during the wrinkle release period at the end of the cycle.

Bad start windings on motor. Your motor needs replaced.

Thanks for the response.

Im having problems finding the part number for a replacement motor.  Its a Samsung dryer made for kenmore but since Sears is no more , I cant seem to find the correct Samsung replacement part number.

Hi Goku, have you opened this up yet?  If it is all linty inside, the centrifugal switch in the motor may not be closing right all the time.  If you cant a new  motor, or if you want to find out for sure, open it up and de-lint it, remove the motor.  Clean the bejeebers out of the centrifugal switch if you can.   Or call Repair Clinic at 877 803 7957 with your model and serial and they can probably help you get a motor?

Are you in Canada? Samsung made Kenmore usually starts with 401 or 402, you can try that instead of the 592 or in front of it.  Also most Samsung dryers use the same motor so u can try using a Samsung model number

Yes, I am in Canada so the 592 means it's a Samsung.

My best bet would be to look up motor for this model, dv219aew/xaa, I give it about 80% chance being correct part
