Default Dryer buzzes but wont start
Model Number: 11096375800   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com

Yesterday the Kenmore electric dryer would start if I pushed the button and held it for several seconds (while it made a buzzing/loud humming noise). A couple of loads later it would buzz but never start. After a few seconds it seems to "trip" off. If I waited a few minutes, it would buzz again when button pressed and held but never start. Is it the starter button or some relay?

Older model so no computer chips. Power checked, door latch checked etc.

sidfink43 is a jewel in the rough

Hi Doc

It is possible it is the start switch, but more likely the motor. Given the age of your machine a replacement might be the better course then investing heavily in parts on speculation.
