Dryer does not turn on when button is pushed. There is power to the outlet and power going through the cord to the dryer i checked both with a tester. The lightbulb inside the dryer does not come on and i checked that and the bulb is still good. The unit makes no noise and no movement when the button is pushed.

Sounds like an electrical issue. Are you sure the outlet is wired correctly? You need a 120 volt line going to one side of the outlet and another separate (not split off the first line) 120 volt line going to the other side. You also need a neutral line and a ground. You should measure 240 volt from one 120v line to the other.

My dryer will run for a while but then it stops. I can still hear the timer ticking and if I push the button again the dryer will run again.

My Best Guess would be a bad power connection, or just a bad connection, A bad timer or Bad Motor

I would ckeck the power cord connections first and even the outlet. Making sure all the wiring is sucure.

Of course make sure you turn off the breaker to the outlet befor serviceing and unplug the machine befor serviceing

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working

Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else

Dryer will not start

Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.

Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked...

Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!
