make sure push start switch is not stuck pushed in.Also sounds like the switch mounted on the motor could be stuck, which means new motor. Does motor start and stop with timer being moved to the off position ?.If so then not the motor.

Won't stop, have to manually open door

Sounds like a bad timer. Your dryer is a Whirlpool a replacement timer should be easy to locate. If the timer is advancing but the dryer won't stop, the problem could be the control unit. Run another load of clothes and take notice of the timer's position. If it doesn't run out, then it's very likely the timer. The video below shows step by step instructions for replacing the timer unit.

My Dryer won't stop drying until I open the door.

If it does this in a Timed Dry setting the timer is bad. If it does this in an Auto dry setting it could be a bad moisture sensor or a bad timer.

Dyer won't come on

check the door switch. with the door open push the lever for the door switch. do you hear a faint click? if not you've found your problem. is the lever even there? if not you've found your problem. if both are o.k. lift the top of the dryer. you should see the switch mounted inside the front panel. remove both wires from the switch & put them together. make sure the wire ends are not touching anything. put the top down, close the door & try to start it. did it start? if yes, replace the switch. let me know if this helps

Crosley gas dryer

the pilot should be located in close proximety to the main burner. the ignition may be one of two devices - an electronic spark type ignition or what is called a hot rail glo-bar. the flame detector has a millivolt generator which generates a 750 millivolt current after it detects the pilot flame and gives a signal to the main valve to open.

Pressing door switch makes dryer stop...why?

The door safety switch has come loose or become misaligned. A little study will reveal how the switch works, & most likely why it doesn't. There should be a obvious way to adjust the switch, or call an appliance tech to do it for you. Unplug the dryer before attempting to work on this switch, as high voltage may be present.
