Simpson 4kg dryer won't start

The dryer won't start. I am assuming the start button is the button on the door but it won't press in and you can open the door by just pulling it gently. It feels like it's not locking properly. Any suggestions please? Thanks

    Hi, The button on the door is a safety switch used to deactivated the machine while the door is open. Some models will not start if the belt is broke. Some will not start if the safety fuse goes bad.

    Can I get a Model # so I can see the exact machine you have?

On dryers with the old mechanical timers you can turn the knob in either direction without harming the mechanism. On either type, even electronically controlled models with a problem like you described, there are a lot of possibilities. After confirming you have power to the appliance check the thermal safety fuse located on the heater housing.

Hi I have a Simpson 4kg eziloader dryer that keeps tripping the power mains . Would this be the timer ?


The heating element uses the most power. Was the home wired by a licensed election ( the dryer plug)? if it was it should have #8 or #10 wire depending on the load. the breaker is sized to the wire (so don't change it). you may have a clogged vent pipe. this will reduce air flow and make the dryer work harder possibly tripping the breaker. You should probably start by making sure you vent is clear and free from debris, debris in the vent could cause a fire.

How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.


110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

When we press the button to start the dryer, we hear the buzzing but the dryer does not move.


assume the buzzing quit when you release the start button. Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

Yes, the knobs don't like to be turned counterclockwise. Spin the knob clockwise to reinstall tightly, then move to set a dry time. Make sure half load button is pressed.
