My Kenmore 62602 electric dryer stopped working mid cycle and now wont start back up. can you suggest a few working sloutions?

It is probably the heat sensor, it turns off the machine if it gets too hot. You will most likely have to replace this or bypass it. It should show you where it is in the manual or the electrical schematic that comes with the washer

The dryer will not heat. The glow plug glows but the gas does not turn on all of the time, I got it to turn on one time when on the permapress setting.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

Drum occasionally will not turn unless manually turned a few times before start; can here a thud each time manually turned.

I beleive the start capacitor is faulty & it has dropped away from where it's supposed to mount inside,the capacitor is probably dangling down,hanging by it's wires & banging on the drum as it rotates.The start capasitor gives the motor it's first kick start to get goin & it's not working that's why you have to help by turning the drum.

This sounds like the motor that drive the drum has packed it in could be the capacitor or the centrifugal switch cant say with the amount of info given. I am quite sure it is with the motor as manually turning it is assisting with the start up of the motor

Plug dryer in wall wont start

The most obvious thing to me is that the cord may have been loosened or damaged by the move, or the terminals in the machine may have loosened. Either test the cord on your "new" machine, or replace it with a known "good" cord. Wait a already have one of those....
Try it, it may be the very thing!

Fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.

Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt.
What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose.
Best wishes,

Apparently you had a short on the case. I'd look at that cord again. 3-wire is Black on right, Red on left, Green in center.
