Dryer wont run
I have a Kenmore 80 Series electric dryer model number 110.60832990 and when you push the start button the dryer makes noise like it wants to turn on and the drum doesnt spin but when you let the start button go it doesnt come on or stay on and I have changed the timer the starter and the thermal fuse and cant seem to figure out what the problem is.
The first thing to do is to check to make sure there isn’t something hung in the fan blade. The best way to do this is to remove the belt and see if the motor will spin by hand. Disconnect the dryer, remove the front of the dryer then disconnect the belt. If the motor will not turn by hand you more than likely have something hung in the fan blade. To access the fan blade open the lint trap and remove the two screws. Then remove the back and remove all the screws that hold the air duct on. The air duct I am talking about is the one that goes from the lint filter to the bottom where the fan blade is. Remove it and unclog the fan blade.
If the fan blade isn’t clogged the motor is more that likely going to be bad. Sometimes cleaning the motor out with compressed air and a vacuum cleaner will repair this. Also they make electric motor cleaner spray and motor lube that you can try. If all of this fails replace the motor.
