My dryer won’t start

My Kenmore elite dryer was working great but now won’t start. I had an appliance repair person come out and tell me that is was the timer. I ordered the new timer and put it in. Still not starting, so I replaced the fuse and the door switch. I’m out of ideas. There is a hum when you press the start button so the power is getting to the timer.

thoughts?

Most dryers have a thermistor that senses moisture. If your vent hose is linked or the venting through the wall is clogged the thermistor will stop the dryer. The thermistor acts like a fuse. Unplug dryer, remove the back panel. The thermistor is white and rectangle shaped about 1.5” long. Test with multimeter set for ohms. Remove the wires and you should have 1.0 ohms. If you have no ohms it’s bad. One 1/4” screw holds it in place. Easy peasy. Don’t forget to clean you vent hose and the duct to vent outside.

If it's the motor buzzing/humming when the start button is pushed then it likely has a bad motor. Open the door and manually reach in and rotate the drum in the counter clockwise direction for a couple of complete revolutions and then shut the door and see if the dryer will start. If the dryer starts; this would indicate a bad motor and it will need to be replaced. If it does not start and continues to hum try this; Open the door and press and hold the door switch in. Rotate the drum counter clockwise and have some one press start while the drum is turning. If the dryer starts, replace the motor.

Door Switch

The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the “click.” If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don’t hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Hello Lora,

From what you’ve said it, it definitely is the motor. Here is a link to repair clinic and their selection of motors, and prices; https://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Pa... .
