    Default 110-8663291 Kenmore dryer push to start switch

    Model Number: 110-8663291
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    Buzzer keeps going after dryer stops.When you set timer and close door it starts without pushing start button. When I remove push to start switch and check continuity it shows switch is ok.When I put switch back in everything is ok again until same problem shows up after a few days. CAN THESE SWITCHES BE STUCK AND THAN BECOME UNSTUCK ONCE YOU UNPLUG MACHINE AND TEST SWITCH?oR IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?

    Exclamation Check model number

    Model Number: 1188663291
    That model number is incorrect. Please double check it.

    CAN THESE SWITCHES BE STUCK AND THAN BECOME UNSTUCK ONCE YOU UNPLUG MACHINE AND TEST SWITCH
    That's extremely unlikely.

    Post the machine's correct model number and we'll look to see what components it uses that could be responsible.

    Unhappy

    .
    110-8663291 appears to be a valid Canadian Kenmore dryer model number. Unfortunately it looks to be a Canada only model and I don't have access to Canadian Kenmore parts list to look up how it was designed.

    If your model uses an 'even heat' or dryness control system, a malfunction of it can cause similar symptoms to yours.

    Being that Sears is defunct in Canada, if you needed to call for service an authorized Whirlpool service depot might be the best choice to call since Whirlpool likely made it for Sears and they might be most familiar with the product.

    Dryer worked for a couple of loads and buzzer problem back. This time push to start switch wouldn't reset and tested bad . New switch installed and everything ok again.I guess push to start switch can go through semi failure events before it fails for good.
