It sounds like the problem may be with the door lock. Having shoes bouncing around in the dryer they are bound to hit the door over and over possible causing damage to the lock. Try pushing on the door and holding it shut while you turn on the unit and see if it works.

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

SOURCE: samsung front load dryer had a burning smell-it

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
under warranty??
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.

Dryer is growling when spinning heavy loads.


The bearings may be gone, but I don't know how old your machine is or the brand. If it is over 8 years old, consider replacing it. Maybe get an estimate from a repairman who knows your brand.

Dryer won't start. was drying a load and had a pair of tennis shoes in with the clothes. It stopped and now won't start back up. All lights, beeps etc. seem to work fine just won't start.


As silly as this seems, did you make sure the door is completely closed. This is a common problem when drying tennis shoes. One time when I was living in an apt. complex, I went to check on my laundry, and my shoes were lying on the floor (with a couple of other fabrics). I then stood by and watched the remainder of the cycle, and next thing you know - the door opens up and throws out my shoes. Never would've believed it unless I seen it with my own eyes. I would turn everything off, and then go through your regular routine. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me - and we can go to Plan B...:) Good Luck to you, Jim

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

I have a Kenmore dryer, my son put his BIG basketball shoes in to dry and now the dryer runs, has heat and does not spin? Can this be fixed or do I need a new dryer?


I WOULD START BY CHECKING THE BELT. THE IMPACT OF THOSE SHOES MAY HAVE BEEN ENOUGH OF A JOLT TO CAUSE THE BELT TO COME OFF THE PULLEY OR BREAK.
