Dryer light comes on but unit will not power up or turn on

When we open the door to our dryer the light comes on, but the dryer will not turn on. We have checked for any buttons that might be sticking and can't find anything. We also have checked to make sure that the power button isn't stuck. Has anyone experienced this type of issue?

    We have it plugged into a 240v 3 prong 30 amp circuit.

    We checked and reset breaker with no luck.

    We checked and the light comes on when we open the door and goes off when we shut it. We also pushed the switch and the light comes on and goes off. The switch and the door are making contact. AC plug is okay.

Check & reset breaker in breaker box.

Your problem may be you have lost one side of your voltage coming in. Light in dryer comes on but circuit to start motor is off.

Msg back if that does not work& we will go further.

    Wow sorry took so long to get back to you email provider slow today.

    Ready here we go.


    1. You say little light comes on. But does little light go out? Check by using your finger or the handle of your tooth brush to push switch see if light goes dark.

    2. Light went out. ouch more work. is the door staying closed & is the switch making contact with door? seems ok keep going.

    3. Check make sure main ac plug is not cracked & is securely plugged in.

    4. Comment me back & will go from there be warned your approaching more serious troubleshooting.


  • Mark Van Skiver Mar 13, 2009

    OK this is very dangerous even unplugged you have capacitors that store voltage /amps that can hurt or kill you. I do not recommend you go any further unless you are comfortable with a voltage meter.

    Check Plug make sure you have.

    220 across main legs & 110 across each one main leg to ground/neutral.

    If you do it is not house wire.

    In the back of dryer remove top back panel look for lose or burnt electrical lines.

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Dryer has power - we can hear the timer ticking and the light comes on when the door is opened, but when we push the start button nothing happens model # leq9558ko 8 yrs old electric


does the light close when the door is closed??? poosible that the door switch has gone bad. or a bad thermal fuse behind the unit is also a common culprit of this.. its a white thermostat on back of unit behind the panel (-----------------------) approx this long ad white,,

The light inside the dryer comes on when the door is open so I know I am getting power to the unit but nothing happens at all when I try to start the dryer.

Dryer wont start - no lights


Dryer door does not think it is closed. There is a sensor on the top of the door that is probably not making contact with the door. Trying pushing the top part of the door and holding it then press the start button.. if the unit starts running then you know what it is. I just had one of these dryers delivered today and had to find out about this by myself tonight!!
