Most of the time it is the door switch that goes bad or the main fuse on the blower box inside fails,you can also check to make sure the dryer wall vent hole or dryer hole is free and clear,let me know what you find-mike

Dryer won't start


If you look closely, there are 3 separate pins that must latch. One is a simple push-button style which latches no problem.
The others are little prongs at the top and bottom of door. The bottom prong latches cleanly, but the top one will not latch because the door is a bit too flexible.
Close the door normally, then firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab, then you press and hold the start button. The dryer starts normally.

first check and make sure the power breaker is on. next the door when it closes there is a safety switch normaly there is a small hole around the frame of the door. when you push on it, you shoud hear a clicking noise. if you don"t, that switch will prevent the tumbler from turning another thing is the belt that goes around the tumbler if it's loose or broken the tumbler will not turn. that can be checked by accessing the bottom panel in the back the belt should be tight. good luck!

Dryer won't start


Does the drum light come on if the door is opened ? Those doors can be tricky, they have 2 latches, one top and one bottom. Close the door, give a slight push at the top of the door and on the bottom, the latches will become easier to close with use. Try it for now though. Other than that, I've seen loose wires from transportation, poor outlet wiring, and even breakers not "on" in my travels of service. Good luck

the dryer has a overload type fuse that blew out the wiring diagram might show you where but it should be either on or near the motor and also check the switch contact where door closes....

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!

Won't work at all,


Hi Lanil,

The only things that will not allow the dryer to start are the following:
  1. I know you said you checked the breakers, but they could be the cause.
  2. The Child bouncing on the doorcould have broken the stub stub that pushes the door switch in.
  3. You may need to firmly press the Start switch.
  4. The dryer need to be plugged in, I know you checked it.
These are the four main things. Since the child bounced on the door, the trouble is most likely with the door switch. Try to use a stick or something to simulate the door closing and activate the switch and push the start button. If this starts the Dryer, and closing the door firmly does not, then the switches position or doors prod that pokes the switch, is not lined up or failiing to fully activate the door switch.
