Either the top pries up or at the bottom of the front panel you'll see 2 screws. If screws at bottom take out and lift off be sure to disconnect door switch wires before removing door completly. If it's pry top up use flat screw driver at about inch and a halh in from edges pop the top up and open then inside front panel toward top you'll find 2 more screws take them out and front panel should come off. Good Luck

Nothing happens when you push the start button. I have checked the breaker already


Sounds like your door switch has gone bad. If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Here is a video on the door switch. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. Here is a video on the thermal fuse.
Happy Holidays!

If it is 6 years of age or older and have a lot of use in the past you will be better off replacing it. The cost to repair it will outweigh its age and cost to repair

Making buzzing sound and not turning. then the buzzing sound stops and it smells like something is burning. then u will hear a clicking noise and sound will stop all together and nothing will happen unless...


Hi,
The motor on your dryer has gone bad. The humming is the motor trying to start and the smell is the motor getting hot because it is not starting.
You need to replace the motor.

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.

Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Sometimes when you jump off a truck the CD player fuse will blow because it was trying to turn on each time you turned over the engine. Check all the fuses.

Check the breakers, then the wiring in the back. Make sure the wiring is connected good. Then the hi limit switch which is probably located under the top. (easy to remove).
