Default Dryer won't start
Model Number: 11066132411   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

I have a Kenmore dryer that will not start. The control panel is working and when the door is open I can hold the door switch in and touch start which will start the dryer. However, when the door is closed it will not start. I replaced the door latch and door strike hoping that would help but it did not. Any suggestions?

Did you replace the door switch?

We didn't replace it because we can start the dryer by engaging the switch manually (holding it in with a finger and it clicks normally)and pushing start with the door open. Once we close the door it won't start.

Okay, lets try this.

If you slowly close the door, do you hear the switch click at any time?

A switch like that can change where it activates as the lever is depressed. its broken or damaged internally. So closing the door doesn't activate it, but pushing it a little farther does. You probably need a new switch.
