The door switch is probably in the next room somewhere.

Look in the hole around the edge of the dryer opening. There should be a switch in there. It's most likely been pushed back so the door post/actuator does not engage it.

Switch need to be put back in place.

You may need a new door switch. Check the wire connections and be sure the switch is secured.

Dryer won't turn off


Relay stuck closed in control circuit, usually the door interlock. Slam the door shut a couple of times to see if it frees the contacts.

I have a 2006 Pontiac GT G6 Coup. When we first bought it back in Nov. 2010, it was fine. After a month or two, the clock would reset almost everytime the car was started, radio stations would NOT get...


sounds like a problem with the ignition barrel.the wiring is loose or the connectors are loose or the barrel is faulty,unless thse are all run from the onboard computer.

The dryer would not start, it was dead, opened and slammed the door shut, it worked fine. 2 days later it went dead again, sounds like the door switch, any ideas?


Sounds pretty good, actually. Insert screwdriver on either end of bottom/top panel and lift. Find the door switch and bypass it for a quick fix (just remember that dryer will operate when you open the door - not recommended if small children are present in the home). My advice is to replace the switch.

Dryer won't come on


Was it the dryer door he slammed shut or the house door? If it was the dryer door, then TheMobilian's answer is on the nose. If it was the house door that was slammed and it tripped the circuit breaker to your house, then you have something else entirely going on. Does your dryer have an electronic control panel (totally smooth surface), or does it have the knobs and buttons? What model number do you have?

Dryer won't start unless I slam the door


Not normal. Check door switch. As a test you can jump it out to see if the dryer works then. if that does not help then , I i would consider replacing the starter switch.
