My Kenmore dryer will not start, is there a reset button?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
April 9th, 2010

I have a Kenmore dryer model 110.68532700 that is only two years old and has been working well. The door closes tightly and there is nothing wrong with the circuit breakers. Is there a reset button on the machine?

There is no reset button on your dryer. I recommend locating the two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both OFF and ON 2-3 times and then check to see if the dryer will start.

If it fails to start, the failure could be:

Improper voltage supply

Failed timer

Door switch

Thermal fuse (key#40)

Loose wire connection

In order to diagnose the failure will require

disconnecting the power supply cord from the power supply

and then removing the rear panel. There is a good possibility the thermal fuse (key#40) is bad. The thermal fuse (key#40) is located on the blower housing (key#30). Disconnect the two wires from the thermal fuse and then join the two spades together as shown in the image below and then wrap the connections with electrical tape. Reconnect the power cord and check to see if the dryer starts. If it starts, remove and replace the thermal fuse.

NOTE: Do no leave it jumped out.

If the thermal fuse was bad, check the venting system for any kinks or blockages. The thermal fuse is part #3392519. The thermal fuse can ordered and shipped to you from
