Dryer will not start


If you manually turn on timer can you hear the faint ticking? #1Verify breaker is not tripped. #2 Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. On many makes there are 2 blue wires that connect to a white and black "fuse" towards the bottom of the unit. Unplug both wires and electical tape them together. plug in dryer and start the cycle. If it works, unplug and go buy the fuse. Clean lint out of air system from dryer to lint screen through exhaust.

Most common cause is a partially or fully clogged dryer exhaust vent makes the dryer overheat and trips the high temp limit fuse. Brush out the vent all the way to the outside.

Dryer won't start, interior light does go on


There is a door switch that is activated when you close the door, you should hear a faint click sound when you close the door slowly,or you can use a flat screw driver and lightly push on the switch to see if it clicks. If there is no sound then that is possibly the problem.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.
