I would first look around the dryer for reasons it died. I would remove and inspect the vent pipe to outside for blockage. I would check the door switch for an audible click and springy movement. I would look into the filter housing for signs of lint buildup. All dryers pretty much work the same. MORE HERE

SOURCE: Have a Samsung gas dryer, power comes on and panel

What is the model number for the samsung dryer? Usually when this happens there are small thermistors that act as safety devices in the dryer that will prevent the unit from running. For example there is a hi and low limit thermistor that if either will faulty the unit would not run at all the lights would come on but the unit would not run to prevent the unit from getting to hot. Message me back your model number and I will find your schematic showing the thermistors in your unit. You would have to check these thermistors with a multimeter and perform continutity tests on them to assure that they are functioning properly. I await your reply Thanks Rick

SOURCE: My Estate dryer won't turn on. I push the on

See if the lever on the door switch clicks. You cannot hear a click or the lever is missing that could be the problem. On the backsides of the dryer is a dust cover. Remove it and look for reasons why the duct fuse might melt and kill power to the door switch.

See the lever there? That must be in for the door circuit to activate the motor.

Electrical on but dryer does not start


Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.

Won't work. No service code.


the first things to check is the door switch,open the door and push in the switch,if it doesn\'t click when pushed in the switch is bad,next thing to check is the belt,on some models there\'s a switch on the pulley assy. if there isn\'t any tension on the pulley the dryer won\'t start.if you need more help i need the model number off of the dryer,open the door and lolook around the opening where you put the clothes in and you\'ll see a tag with the model number,if the dryer hasn\'t been taken apart and cleaned out the thermal fuse could have popped,if the dryer gets to hot inside from a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is blocked the fuse will pop and it\'s non resetable.

Upside down letter F and #5


does it look like this? t5 or ts could be a thermistor code.if you changed out the thermistor you most likely have a bad computer board.there should be a tech sheet in the machine usually in the top console. here's something that might help http://mikemerrittmotors.yuku.com/topic/2255 the machine doesn't run is that correct?i would check the obvious things,open the door and push in on the door switch and make sure that's working correctly,it should click when you push it in,there's a switch on the belt pulley,if the belt broke the dryer won't start,then check the thermal fuse,the thermistor and if they all check good then you have a bad computer board.just have to get in there with a meter and start reading out parts,also make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer,you can check it at the block where the cord connects to the dryer,after that unplug it and check all the other parts for continuity and you have to remove at least one wire off of the part you're checking.also here's the sears site so you can look up your parts if you don't have this site already. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDE9700AYW/3048/0151200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MDE9700AYW good luck and wish i could help you out more

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.
