Question and Answers

Q:

when I push my push start switch on my kenmor dryer it start and the stops. and I smell burning wire

A:

Having a dryer not function with a burning smell would make anyone worry. While you wait for the expert review and response for your model, you can check a similar situation from a previous expert post if you like. I attached below. If you would feel more comfortable having a technician visit to diagnose and make repairs for you, an option is Sears Home Services at the link below. Hope this information helps.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on you symptom and details I must assume the motor is faulty. Select air dry and then start the dryer and if it continues to run briefly and shut off then I would have to assume the motor is faulty and the motor will need to be replaced. The part number of the motor is 279827 and can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

I highly recommend calling and setting up a service appointment to properly diagnose the failure and to have the service technician replace the motor. I added an image below with the instructions if you feel confident in removing and replacing the motor yourself.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Based on you symptom and details I must assume the motor is faulty and not the push to start switch. If could possibly be a faulty motor centrifugal switch if the motor continues to run while pushing and holding the push to start switch in. For the cost of the switch I would replace the motor.
