dryer does not run have power and light goes out when I shut the door. Hit the start button hear it click but nothing happens.
You will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing to make sure that it has continuity. If no continuity then replace the thermal fuse 3392519.
My dryer quit heating so I changed the heating element and it worked for about 3 cycles and now it has stopped heating again. Why?
Answer Hello Teresa. It sounds like either the cycling thermostat is bad or there is a venting issue with the unit. You will need to check both issues with the unit.
My dryer does run, no motor humming, door light ok when pushed in, no timer sound, power to the unit is verified, push the start button then hear a click only, turn timer pass off position and press the start button click only again, still will not run. no signs, sounds, or smell. what will it be is it the start button? the timer? or the thermal fuse. last cycle before the breakdown, was in low heat cycle only. I have the timer ordered and its on the way here, but thats just a guess. thanks in advance
Answer Hello Michael,
The only components in the start circuit besides the wiring harness that could cause this are the timer, the door switch, and the motor. I doubt the door switch is the issue if you hear a click when it is pressed. You should try this: Open the door and tape the door switch down. Press the push-to-start switch while reaching inside and spinning the drum. If the dryer starts, the start winding in the motor has failed and the motor will have to be replaced.If it doesn't start. the wiring harness and the timer are suspects.
Just replaced igniter, dryer goes on for few moments and flame goes off?
With the flame going out after just a couple of seconds would indicate bad coils on the gas valve.
I changed the heating element but now the tub is not turning.
Answer Hello Michael. Check the door switch and the thermal fuse and see if you knocked a wire off on the unit.
Kenmore gas dryer starts and heats heat goes off after a few minutes.
Answer Hello Fred. If the unit does not relight, you will need to replace the coils on the unit.
My dryer is blowing warm air. It is taking about 2 of the 70 minute cycles to dry a medium sized load.
Answer Hello Rena. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
