the switch is fine
the switch in all dryers triggers a relay, that then latches and supplies current to motor and heater, until deactivated by door switch or timer switch
inside the control panel,
trace the wires from the start switch to the first device
may be opaque.
ensure that the wires are all connected.
if all are connected replace relay
the local part store will have the relay it is common to most dryers

SOURCE: turn timer to 60 minute
The most common cause of this problem is a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the drive motor and turns off power to the motor if it is blown. The heating circuit is activated by the motor through a centrifugal switch. No motor running, therefore no heat.

SOURCE: When dryer is switched on
It seems that the program controller unit is faulty or has hung up . Remove the power and keep aside , check if the controller unit has any power issues.
If the unit does not reset the processor must be checked.check for short on the motor , check if the door switch is working.

My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started
doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.
Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry
sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.
Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn
the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at
the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.
Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.
Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button
should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and
Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.
Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty
any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into
the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the
green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash
button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause
button to recommence the cycle.
Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing
into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn
the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process
Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to
Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the
Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then
press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.
Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.
