Control Panel turns off


HI,
The PCB unit ie the control panel circuit board has gone bad. The probable cause of the same is moisture on the board.

When I push the start button the dryer will not start


May need to replace the starter swithch behind the control panel. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS DISCONNECTED. If you still hear a humming sound when you hit the start button then it is not the switch, but the motor and if that is the case you may want to look into your warranty.

When I push the start button it will not turn on got power to dryer


The start button goes directly to the motor to energize the start winding until the centrifugal switch in the motor energizes the run winding.

If the motor is not trying to start, I would next test the start switch & related connections.

Must hold start button to run. no heat


disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor

Depending on the make of dryer,there are several possibile reasons for this.
First and foremost, could be a faulty motor- faulty start capacitor, Faulty start relay.
Without more information I cannot be more specific.
