Question about Maytag Dryers
When I press the power button the lights come on but when I push start it won't start.
There may be an issue with the sensor on the door. If the sensor isn't making contact this would still allow the lights to work but may create a disruption in the connection. I would look at both the door mounted clip and the catch on the frame and make sure they are free of any debris.

What is the model number for the samsung dryer? Usually when this happens there are small thermistors that act as safety devices in the dryer that will prevent the unit from running. For example there is a hi and low limit thermistor that if either will faulty the unit would not run at all the lights would come on but the unit would not run to prevent the unit from getting to hot. Message me back your model number and I will find your schematic showing the thermistors in your unit. You would have to check these thermistors with a multimeter and perform continutity tests on them to assure that they are functioning properly. I await your reply Thanks Rick
