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

If you recently had a power failure or just installed your dryer sometimes its necessary to reset your breaker box. Unplug your dryer and turn off and then back on the breaker switch to your dyer. then re plug in your dryer and see if that works
Sounds like the control panel may be dead. If you cannot get any lights
to come on at all on the front panel, its probably a goner. You can
check the voltage coming out of the control pc board via the schematic
inside the dryer panel. I have this same exact problem. I replaced the
control board 3 times because the panel seems fine if i plug it into an
external power supply but will not work when plugged into my dryer. I
have my jumpered and running off of a circuit breaker. I have checked every part in the entire unit. That was over 2 years ago. I still need to get a control panel and see if it fixes mine but after dropping $130 on the control board, i feel i could buy another dryer with the $200 they want for the control panel. Also this dryer seems to streak my clothes with brown or rust colored spots. The dryer is spotless inside. I even took off the rubber seal because i thought the glue is what was possibly doing it when it heated up but that didn't help either....This dryer sucks.
A possible fix, which sounds completely absurd is to reset the circuit breaker. If you visually examine the breaker it will not appear to net resetting. This is because only half the breaker has been blown. You will not see this visibly and my husband thought I lost my mind and spent several hours troubleshooting before he would listen to my solution. We have only had to do this once in the six years of ownership. Hope this helps
