Question about Dryers
Check the motor for a blown fuse or circuit breaker attached to it, maybe a wire is disconnected from it. Another thing to look at is the actual switch on the top. Is it making good contact? Does it have a fuse or circuit breaker attached? Is it getting power?

If the light is still on when the door is closed it thinks the door is open and will not start - check the door switch - make sure you here a click and the light goes off when you activate it manually

The thermal cut-out is located on the side of the heater housing assm. To gain access you need to use a putty knife to depress the two spring clips between the top and the front panel and raise the top. The heater is on the back wall. The part number for the t-stat and thermal cut-out kit is LA-1053 and is about $20.00. Don't forget to clean your vent, and check your blower assm. Either one could have caused the problem.

Look for a bad thermal fuse pix below.Straight wire to test it.Replace if the dryer turns on. 2nd. Test the door switch.

Mine shows a faint light behind the control locked indicator and the timer is dimly lit on the two middle horizontal bars (middle of the eights). They go off by pushing various button combos. If I unplug it for a week I can get the control to work for a few minutes.
I replaced the control board, it worked for 5 minutes, then back to nothing. I want to replace the interface but would rather not waste any more money.
I dont want to check every wire for continuity. If someone has fixed this problem, please let me know.

most of the time it is the door switch that goes bad,also you can check the main fuse inside the dryer on the blower box,and always make sure your dryer vent and wall vent are clear to vent,let me know what you find-mike
