Question and Answers


Kenmore Dryer 41782042100 has power but just buzzes and won't start


I provided a wiring diagram for your dryer in the image below. The start circuit through the dryer motor is traced in red. The normal circuit through the buzzer is traced in green. There is also a timer contact chart shown below the wiring diagram. The buzzer should only go off at the end of the cycle. The note at the bottom left of the second image indicates that there is a pulsar cam that should allow the buzzer to only go off for about 5 seconds at a time at the end of the cycle when it is operating properly. Based on your details, you likely have a bad timer.

Replacing that component may fix your problem as long as you do not have another component failure in the dryer at the same time.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the timer is 131965900.

Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

I hope that this information helps. If you need further assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to help you further.

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 .
