Kenmore 70 series dryer makes buzzing noise and stopped working

My Kenmore 70 series makes a buzzing nose when you try to start it. It's getting power but it seems like something is jammed or maybe the motor may be out. What should I check?

Kenmore 70 Series Electric Dryer will not start


It sounds like the hi-limit thermostate and/or the thermal cut-off is what is causing your dryer to shut down. Basically it's over heating. You should replace these two items togeather. Also the thermal cut-off will be triggered by a grounded out heating element. Here is a diagram of where these items are located. hope this helps

I have a 70 series kenmore dryer that is new. it has been working, I took out a load and put in another pushed the start button. It ran for about 2 seconds then stopped and will not start. It has power,...


Sounds like you may have tripped the thermal limit on the motor. Although, usually you will hear a loud buzzing sound when you try to start it. Let it set for about 2 hours, and try to restart. If that doesnt work, the only other thing that could stand in your way is a door switch. The door switch is a very easy and inexpensive repair. The motor is quite a bit more. If you have not cleaned the lint out of the inside of your dryer (requires some disassembly of your dryer), that would be a good place to start and will sometimes allow a thermally overloaded motor to work again. Keep in mind, if it is the motor, they only have so many thermal resets before they are just done. There are instructions on this website if you are interested in trying to diagnose this dryer. Please, make sure before you take it apart, you have it unplugged!

Series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound


The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.

Sounds like your push to start switch has went bad. When they short out, or cross contact the power continually shoots through it, and the buzzer contniues to make that "Were Under Attack" noise. If that doesnt seem to work, then its a small chance that the timer has went bad.
