Re: dryer wont start
In the lower part of the dryer you have wirings, the motor, and often also an elecronic module, that also works at 120V, if water had reached one of this parts while the dryer was hooked to powe, it must have caused a short.
The appliance must be taken apart by a repairman, and the part that has shorted, replaced or repaired.

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

you have a bad motor,i live in boston and we had some floods here,every dryer i checked that got wet needed new motors,the washers were fine,check with a meter to see if power is going to motor,if it is and it's not starting you know it's the motor.good luck.the motors are easy to change out yourself
the motor is cooked,i live in the boston area and we had some bad floods a few months ago,all i did for two weeks was change out dryer motors,you can try to spin the drum and hold in the door switch and have someone else hold in the start button to see if it will start but you have to change out the dryer or get a new one if it's in rough shape
It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.
