Earlier today, when I pushed start button, it would just buzz...no movement. Then I had to manually spin the drum then I could shut the door and it would run. Now it will not turn on, nor any sound. ? This is a Kenmore 90 Series.

Hi Wayne,

Sounds like you possibly have a bad motor.

What I do is take the drum out and manually turn the motor shaft with my hand both ways, it should be easy to turn both ways, if not its bad.

Watch this video to access it: Dryer Drive Motor Replacement Make sure you unplug the dryer first before accessing it.

Here's the motor for your model:
279787 Dryer Drive Motor


Let us know what you find.

Jake, replaced the dryer drive motor, it was a perfect fit, easy swap. The machine runs great and even quieter. You were right on diagnosis! Thxs.
