Model Number: 110
Brand: Sears Kenmore
Age: 6-10 years


We have a kenmore 80 series electric dryer. We replaced the belt about 3 months ago. When you press the start button, the buzzing sound does NOT occur. When you open the door, the light turns ON. When you manually hold the door part that activates the switch on and off, it turns the light OFF.

All the threads I can find discuss broken belts and door switches, and the buzzing sound is present.

As we have a working light and no buzz and a recently replaced belt, could anyone help us out? We always clean our lint traps, although I'm sure through the years we have a buildup. Is this enough to prevent the machine from starting or even the start button from buzzing?

What should I do? It costs about $90 just to have a repairman out to my house.

Thank you for your time,
