It sounds like you have a simple fix. The most likely problem is that you have a blown thermal fuse.
Remove the lower panel, remove the lint filter from its housing, then remove the housing itself. It's a diamond shaped WHITE component on the duct work behind the lint filter housing. It will Usually have two blue wires on it.
This fuse usually blows due to an exhaust problem. Lint build up, too long, kinked, pinched or otherwise compromising air flow. Check the internal duct and the external duct to be sure it is clear.
Here is the part you need to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Thank you for using FixYa!

SOURCE: dryer will not start

Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has circuit break er tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?

SOURCE: dryer wont start

Commonproblems...blown house fuse, broken belt ( on some models )...door switch...*thermal fuse open (venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire....timer....motor, in order from mostcommon to least common. * If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the ventingsystem and vent hood first, then it is often a good idea to replace the operatingthermostat at the same time. This is a picture of some modernthermal fuses.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Today I used my Paypal a/c with no questions, yesterday I tried and said I need new password. Please tell me what password is on my a/c.

Firstly, this is FixYa, and if anyone here had your PayPal password, you'd have no money in your account.

Secondly, if the thing works fine today, follow the maxim: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Around the steering column there is a flat metal contact ring, commonly referred to as a "clock spring", it seems you have a problem with that part.I do not recommend to try and fix it yourself, have a good mechanic look at and correct the proble; will most likely require a new part.

I did a google search for the service manual and found one from Sanyo support. From that I was able to figure out how to open the unit safely, and find the fuses and safety switches to check. I found a loose wire plugged onto the main interlock switch (don't know how it worked all this time for how loose it was...). Re-attached it, and now it works fine.
WARNING! There can be very hi voltages on the inside of the uwave so you really need to be careful and know what you are doing! Also, you need a special bit to remove a couple of the cover screws.

Ipod Nano 8GB blank grey screen

I found this solution: Push the hold button on, then off. Then, press the Menu and Center button att he same time - hold for 6 to 8 seconds. The Apple icon should appear on your screen. You might have to repeat the steps. (I had to do it twice, but it worked.)

Platinum JBL Series Speakers

as far as I know the speakers itself don't need drivers. I use em myself for years. The problem could be 2 things, 1: is the power still plugged into the speakers (from the monitor)(check both sides). 2: if you where removing any files from your computer it might be possible that you removed some drivers that came with your mainboard or audiocard.
