You have a thermostat that is keeping the dryer from running. there are usually 3 on every dryer some reset some do not un plug the unit if it does not reset when you plug it back in you will need to check which one hase gone out. Be carefull the best way to check it is with the power on. but there will be 220 Vac present it will knock the tar out of you. if you cross it wrong. if U are not comefortable call a technition to fix.

Dryer will not spin, but can you hear the motor start when the button is pushed? If you hear the motor then the belt is probably broken. If you cannot hear the motor, then open the lid and check to see if there is a belt in place. A second cause for not dryers spinning are misaligned door switches. Shut the door and if it does not spin. Carefully hold the door switch closed by hand and see if does spin (for a second). This test will show that the door switch is working, but that the door is not closing the switch and that is it probably misaligned.

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

Why does dryer spin with door open?


Hi Mandy,

The fact that the light bulb is out *and* the drum continues to spin when the door is opened - all point to a faulty door switch.

This switch tells the machine the "status" of the door position. When the door is open, it turns on the light *and* stops / prevents the drum from starting. When closed, the light is shut off *and* the drum is permitted to spin. You should have the switch serviced as if a wire came loose it adds a potential shock hazard - in addition to the safety issue of placing hands into a spinning drum.

Be sure the child lock switch is working. If the door is not closed,it won't spin. If the switch is broken, it will not spin.

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.


the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

Dryer is getting Power but not coming on.


Check the following---


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
