I have a kenmore series 80 dryer electric, model #66814690 that won't start. It is getting electricity because the light comes on. The latch at the door is fine. I puch the start button and nothing. Yes I do move the timer any also. It just won't start, any help would be appreciated.

** kenmore electric dryer model 66814690 **

I found a listing for a model 110.66814690 which would make it a Whirlpool built machine.

** The latch at the door is fine. **

Just the latch (which holds the door closed)? How about the electrical door switch and its actuator? Both those need to be functioning properly before the motor will run.

There is also a contact in the timer for the motor. If it were open, the motor wouldn't run either.

The motor itself could also be defective. Basically, if the motor was getting power but not running, it would likely need to be replaced. If it was not even getting power, the problem would be elsewhere in the dryer.
