Question about Dryers
The hose to the dryer and vent are ok just wont stay on
The problem you've described appears to be the DOOR SWITCH (Very likely and very common).
The purpose of the door switch is to prevent injury when the drum is rotating. Thus, if the door is open or the door switch "thinks its' open" (broken), the dryer will not turn on for safety reasons.
Depending on your "handy" skills, the door-switch is pretty simple to replace and costs about $10-$15 or so. I would access the inside of the dryer; observe the metal trip level (not on all models), depress and test the switch for continutity; or replace as necessary.
