The ring probably fell down into the blower housing. Unplug the dryer and pull the lint screen out of the housing. The second image below shows the procedure for removing the bottom front service panel on this dryer. The first image shows a photograph of the dryer with the panel being removed. If you remove the bottom front service panel, you should be able to remove the blower housing as shown below. Hopefully you will find the ring in this area.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you do not feel confident performing this procedure yourself, then you can have a Sears technician visit your home and find the ring. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dryer start?

A:

A number of different problems could prevent your dryer from running. There is a thermal fuse that would prevent the motor from running. This dryer also has a broken belt switch. If the drive belt is broken, the motor will not run.

First, check to see if the drum lamp turns on when the dryer door is open. This will verify that the dryer has electrical power to run the drive motor. If the drum lamp turns on when the door is open, make sure that it turns off when you push in on the dryer door switch. This will help verify that the door switch is working properly.

If the drum light does not turn on when the dryer door is opened (and the light is not burned out) then you could have a voltage supply problem even though the breaker is not tripped. You would need a volt/ohm meter and the ability to safely make a voltage check on the outlet to check for proper voltage. The first image below shows a typical 240 volt outlet with a diagram of how to check for proper voltage. If you have a volt/ohm meter and you are confident that you can safely make this voltage check, you can check for proper voltage at the outlet using the diagram as a guide. If the outlet is okay, unplug the dryer and check the wiring connections on the back of the dryer. A power cord problem or wiring problem is likely causing your failure if the drum light will not even turn on properly. You could also have a door switch problem that would prevent the drum light from turning on.

If the dryer apparently has power and the door switch appears to be okay, I recommend that you pull off the bottom front service panel as shown in the second image below (with the dryer _still unplugged_). With this panel removed, you should be able to check for a broken drive belt. If the belt is broken then it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. I provided a procedure in the third image for accessing and replacing the drive belt. You will need to pull the plastic end caps off of the sides of the console as shown in the photograph to access the hidden screws that secure the console to the top panel of your dryer. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

If the drive belt is okay then I recommend checking the thermal fuse next (with the dryer still unplugged). The bottom of the second image shows the location of the thermal fuse. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can locate this fuse and pull one wire off (with the dryer still unplugged). Check the resistance across the leads of this fuse. It should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If it measures infinite resistance (open) then the fuse is bad and will need to be replaced. You can verify that this is the only component that is preventing the dryer from running by taping the two wires that go to the thermal fuse together with electrical tape and then reassembling and testing the dryer. If it runs properly with this fuse bypassed, then replacing the thermal fuse will fix your dryer. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an essential safety component on the dryer. Also, if the thermal fuse was blown, check the exhaust vent duct system for a clog or restriction. Check the lint screen to make sure that it is clean also. An unresolved restriction in the exhaust air flow could cause the thermal fuse to blow again shortly after being replaced.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have a wiring failure, a bad start switch, a failed door switch, a failed broken belt switch or a bad drive motor that would prevent your dryer from running.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
