Kenmore Dryer won't start ...


I could use some assistance on how to best diagnose why my Kenmore 80 Series Dryer is not working. Unfortunately, I don't have the manual however below I have included the model & serial number:

Type #180-00 Serial #MG4426806
Model/Stock# 66812692 66812

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Model # does not work, open door and model # on edge will look like this xxx.xxxxxxxx may start with a 110.xxxxxxx
Will not start does it make any noise or nothing when push to start button pushed.
Added 110 to your model # and came up. Most common problem if not making any noise is thermo fuse. Need a meter with ohm or continuity. UNPLUG DRYER FIRST Take back off, on bottom right there is a white fuse with blue wires on it check continuity between both wires, if no sound you need the thermo fuse. After replacing clean out the vent to the outside or you will be doing this again. Air flow at back of dryer should be the same outside.
