Re: Start Switch Broke
Hello Friend, Its easy to replace the start switch on your dryer. Just remove the four screws at top of control panel. You will need a start tip bit to remove the screws. Once removed just pivot the panel towards front of washer exposing the inner backside of panel. Now you can easily remove the screws that hold on the start switch and replace with new one. Happy to help, Tim. Please rate my help to you. Thanks.

Good call on the timer switch. If the teeth have worn at the start position, starting would be delayed until the timer is rotated beyond the worn area. The normal operation of the start button is that it should to be pushed in and held for a second, to prevent inadvertent starts.The problem could be related to the door latch. The door safety switch will make intermittent contact if the door is not completely latched. If the door has become misaligned from downward pressure, it may not be drawing the door in enough to push in the switch. First check the alignment of the door. If the door is low, try bending the hinges back up. Open the door just enough to get your fingers inside the bottom of the door and slowly pull up. If the door is better aligned it may push the switch in better. Close the door and try the dryer.Next try holding the door in with one hand and pressing the start button. If the dryer starts every time while pushing the door in, then the latch is worn and should be replaced. I hope this solves the problem.
factory security does not have toggle switches as far as I know so it is probably an aftermarket system. Try one of two things, turn the toggle switch the oposite direction with battery disconnected. Reconnect the battery and try again, the horn will beep a few times when you reconnect. try starting. If that doesn't work, disconnect the battery and turn the key to the on position and reconnect the battery and the horn will sound but will go off get in the car and try to start. It should start and run normally. shut car off, then you should be able to return the toggle switch to the previous position If this happens again turn the toggle switch to the opposite position with the batterry disconnected and turn the key switch to the on position and reconnect the battery and start when started go see a service that installs aftermarket systems and they should be able to reset it security system Hope this helps
The 55lh90 has a vacation switch on the bottom right corner. It's a toggle switch that interrupts power to the power supply. Should just need to toggle that switch to the "on" position, and everything should be back to normal.
If there are only two wires going to the switch you can unplug the heater and strip about 1/2 inch of insulation off of the wires and twist them together. Use a wire nut or electrical tape to protect connections.
If you can't find the right replacement switch you can use a simple toggle switch in it's place. Or just unplug it when you're done using it. I hope this helps you. Thanks.
Check to see if there is a toggle switch on the back of the case. You may have inadvertently hit the switch and turned it to the off position. Try moving the switch to the opposite position and then try turning on your system. If you need further help let me know.
Do you have a toggle switch on the power supply at the back of the unit? You may have inadvertently turned it off, try toggling it in the other direction. If that does not work, you may have a dead powersupply or even a dead connection to your on/off button on thee front of the case.
