    I tried a new switch, and had the same result. I've also popped the breakers to see if that had any impact.



    Any more suggestions?



    Thanks for the suggestion!!!

    There is probably a short in the circuit... You'd have to check all the wiring and make sure there's not one touching the metal housing or another wire...

you have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

Dryer will not turn on and stay on.


Hello , bad news here , when you press the start button it sends power to the motor and then a clutch sets in and closes a set of points that then sends power to your element -if the clutch does not engage the motor will not continue to run or send power to the element and that is what is happening to your dryer.
not an easy fix at all , the clutch is bad and its located inside the motor and the entire motor would need replaced to repair this problem. they range from 80-100 dollars and would take about 1-2 hours to change.
let me know if you have any other questions.

Dvd code


Try preforming an automatic code search:

1) Make sure the device is on.
2) Hold down the DVD button and the power button simultaneously until the red light stays on solid.
3) Then press the power button - it will flash one time - keep pressing slowly, letting it flash until the device turns off.
4) As soon as the device turns off, press the stop button

If your the remote does not power the device off after cycling through all the codes - You will know this when the power button blinks and deluminates - then your "universal" remote will not work with the DVD player.

The best of luck to you!
