Kenmore Electric Dryer won't Start/Run but will Heat

(1/4) > >>

My Kenmore Electric Dryer (110.67732791) won't Start/Run (but will Heat) and makes a buzzing sound while holding the Start Switch :tickedoff: [/size]. I have 120/240 AC Voltage on the Electric Cord that attaches to the back of the dryer. The Door Switch clicks and Interior Drum Light turns Off & On when pressed. The drum turns easily both direction's. Therefore, could it be a broken Belt, Start Switch, Drive Motor or Timer :) [/size]. Also, please include instruction's on how to check the electrical component for Continuity (or Ohm's). I know how to use a Mutimeter but don't know which terminal pin's to check and what Ohm reading it should show.
 :thanks:

How do you know it heats if it wont start or run?

While pressing the Start Switch, I opened the Door and pushed the Door Switch with Timed Dry cycle selected and saw the Heating Element glowing in the rear part of the drum :popcorn: .

Replace the motor, part # 279827

The centrifugal switch on the motor is stuck in the closed position.
May be due to a lint buildup.
You may be able to unstick it.
If not,AJ is correct....motor time.
