Kenmore 796.81379210 won't start
« on: July 06, 2014, 03:13:18 PM »
My Kenmore dryer is 13 months old. It stopped working during a cycle. It will turn on but when I push the start all I hear is a "click."

I'd check the belt first, then door switch. If not one of those two, take a look at the tech sheet and see what fuses/thermostats are in series with the motor, then ohm them out.
