We have a Kenmore HE3 electric dryer, model number 11082822101. Today it stopped running and will not start up again. It stopped in the middle of a cycle, the cloths were warm but still wet. The panel said there were 14 minutes left. All the lights on the control panel light up as normal, but when you push the start button, it clicks and beeps, like normal, but it will not start. Any ideas?

** it clicks and beeps, like normal, but it will not start. **

Two to start with. On your model there is a 'belt break' switch (by the motor) which if defective, the belt has broken or just fallen off will stop operation of the motor only. There is also a thermal fuse (see the link below) on the blower housing or exhaust duct which if open (defective) could also stop operation of just the motor.

BTW. Anytime a thermal fuse, safety or thermal cutout has opened on a dryer, the dryer venting should be *thoroughly* inspected for blockages and proper installation (see the following link).

- How long can my dryer vent be?


Other than those first 2 relatively simple (and inexpensive) things, it could be a problem in the unit's electronic control ($$$) or just a defective motor ($$) which on dryers seem to fail fairly frequently.
