I have a 12-year-old, model #110.96272100 Kenmore dryer. Yesterday, after a few loads, it stopped working. When you push the start button, nothing happens. I checked the breaker (no problem), I checked for power at the receptacle and the wiring connections on the dryer (no problem), and I looked at the exhaust hose (no obstructions).
I'm wondering if its a switching problem, but I'm not sure how to check this. Also, I understand that, on some models, this happens when the belt goes. And, obviously, the motor could be shot. I don't want to start disassembling if its just the switch though.
Any input would be appreciated.
