Default Click no start
Model Number: 110.85091401   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

My dryer stopped working. When I start it, I only hear a click but no start. I've disassembled and checked the thermal fuse for continuity and it seems to be in working order. I considered checking the relay but can't seem to find it on the schematic. Not sure if that's the next step either. Any help is appreciated.

The display reports as if the machine was running normally. The time shows up and all other settings...lights for temperature etc...

Since posting, I see that there appears to be two thermal fuses. One on the housing #44 and one on the dryer heating box #46. Both test good for continuity. I also tested the Dry High Limit Therm #48 and #42, the dryer thermistor, both failed continuity but I don't know if they require it with the machine off and cold.

I did notice this though. It looks like a connection in the wiring harness coming from the motor. It was resting on the bottom against metal. Looks like some sort of uninsulated connection. Not sure if it's meaningful. Hasn't caused a problem for so many years until now, if in fact it is the issue.

Actually, now that I've traced the wire, looks like a ground so I'm guessing that if it's grounding out, that would be its purpose so I don't think that's the problem.

Since this is a Kenmore look at the schematic at Sears Parts Direct dot com.

The part you describe are different that what is actual.

There should be a thermal fuse #59 and a thermistor #42 on the blower / exhaust housing.

There should be a a cut off fuse #47 and a high limit thermostat #48 on the heater box.

The only thing that would prevent the motor from starting is the thermal fuse #59 or the door switch.
Otherwise that mess of wires touching the base of the dryer might be your issue.
Sorry the picture is not to clear....

Ah yes. I see it now. Everything is easier with the right numbers. #59 looks more like the fuses I've seen on the internet...and it failed continuity. Do you think a good sized local hardware store might stock this part? I'm going to try anyway. I got a load of wet clothes. Thanks for you help.

I don't think so as hardware stores do not typically carry appliance parts.
Perhaps you have an appliance parts store near you or a sears store with a parts department.

Thanks. I got a few I'm going to check out. Quick question. What are some of the other causes for this blowing, besides the most common, clogged lint passageways.

My lint hose and every inch of the link passageway are spotless. Could it just be age? Or maybe a problem with the high limit therm?

It could be age, they have been known to blow out after repeated close to high temp use.
I would recommend replacing the thermister #42 as it is responsible for cycling the heating element on and off and it may be letting the temp get to high.
The exhaust on the outside of your house is it free of any blockage as well?
The louver or vent cover is one place where lint tends to collect and build up especially if yours goes out through the roof. (not sure of your system)
