Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Dryer - Won't start upon pressing "START"

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It will not likely need a push to start button or a new wiring harness.  My first thought is the motor. The next time it makes it won't start and only hums or buzzes, open the door and manually rotate the drum in a counter clockwise direction a revolution and then shut the door and press start. If it starts, I suspect a faulty drive  motor or something is creating too much friction and not alowing the drum to rotate as it should.

I added several images below to reference if needed. You can also disconnect the drive belt from the motor and see if the motor will start each and everytime of not. If it hums with the belt off, I suspect a faulty motor or loose wire connection in the motor wiring circuit.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing. 

 If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.
