You gave some items to check on my dryer and I did find that it was th interlock system. The little black button at the top of the dryer door. Now...all I need to know is how to fix this little bugger. Thanks Rickzilla...

I am going to try this one with very little information. First I would check the circuit breakers and make sure the cicruitg breaker did not trip. then I would turn the timer to different settings like and example delicates, normal cycle. if none of those did not work, I would look at the door interlock switch. on the door there is usually a little tab protuding out and it goes into a slot and pushes a switch. these is so the dryer will not run unless the door is closed.
so more than likely it is power loss problem
timer/ start button
hope this helps
Fairly simple, Disconnect the power, remove the large backing plate on the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse is a long white skinny piece with two wires on it, just to the left of the vent outlet. The heating element is on the bottom of the heat box on the right side of the back, and has 2 screws holding it on. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
it is one of 2 things,the door switch is bad or the heater box fuse is bad,you can remove the back panel and you will see the little fuse on the top of the heater box,if you have a meter you can check the fuse and the door switch on the ohms setting,ler me know-mike
If your Electric Dryer isn't doing anything at all, I would encourage you to do a few basic checks..
First off, are you sure that the circuit breaker feeding power to the dryer hasn't tripped?
If that's OK and you are sure you have power getting to the dryer then the next thing to check would be the door interlock switch. If that is not working properly when the door shuts, that disables most other functions. The switch could be defective, the wiring that goes to it may have gotten disconnected or damaged so that is where I would start to look first....
Hope that helps.
Other things that may impact the dryer are non-resettable fuses inside but I wouldn't go that route until you've checked the basics.. Let me know what happens after your initial checks are done..
If it won't start , then the door interlock switch is the first place I would look at..are you sure the door interlock switch is working? Here is a link that shows your dryer as an exploded view as well as associcated replacement parts.. The thermal fuse ( normally associated with the heater only ) should be checked as well .. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
Hope this helps...Let me know what you find ..
