    My maytag dryer won't start - took it apart and removed tons of caked up lint from the blower and vents.  Everything is clean - proper voltage at electrical connectors; door switch and latch appear to be ok, but not sure how to test power button and thermal fuse.

Check and make sure that the door is secure. If the door is not securely shut and latched it will not turn on. You could have a problem with the door switch though too. It may need to be replaced. If it is not sensing that the door is latched anymore the dryer will not come on. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

My Roper dryer RED4400VQ won't start

Have you checked the door switch? If not make sure it clicks as it should. Next confirm that you have full power to drier, sometimes they have two 120 breakers in your breaker panel, make sure one has not tripped. Also check drier cord and receptical. If all is well it is probably the thermal control fuse behind the back panel on drier, on the blower houseing. It is a small white narrow fuse with two wires to it. There is no way to reset this, you will have to purchase another around 15.00. just be sure to turn drier off and unplug before removeing panel. Good Luck

Sounds as if the motor centrifugal switch is stuck. Check to see if lint built up around switch or centrifugal mechanism on motor shaft. Rap switch with the handle of a screw driver hard but don't break it .
