If you have full power to it then maybe the door switch is bad.

Inglis IFR 8200 electric dryer - power light comes on but no power to motor or heater. TCO hasn't tripped Any ideas?


Check the door switch! This is the likely culprit if the motor will not start. You can push the button in by hand with the door open and while holding the button in, push the start button. If still no go, check the switch itself does it click when pushed in and released slowly. If you can't hear or feel it clicking, replace the door switch. You can verify the switch function with a multimeter by reading across the switch without power applied and check for continuity as it changes state.

When I hit the start button on my crosley dryer it will not start


Probably is the door switch, is a button (around the hole where you insert the clothes) around the perimeter where the door seats. and the button is not been press fully or is not functioning. If you pushed manually you will here a click ( sound like a click on a mouse on a computer) and Used your thumb and press firmly the door will be open for this test while push the start button and may work!.

The control switch assembly needs to be replaced. The start button is sticky.

Problem with my GE dryer


  • turn your circuit breaker off then back on. sometimes the only one side of the dual 220v breaker will trip leaving you with a non functioning machine thats seems to have electricity going to it.
  • another thing to check is the door switch.
