Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Try opening the door, spin the drum by hand, then qi\uickly close& press start. If this works, then the capacitor has failed. About $30, easy to replace.

Why would my older Maytag Neptune Electric dryer suddenly quit? Interior light comes on when door opened, but when I press start, it shudders but doesn't tumble or start?


if thermal fuse ok you may have a problem with your interface board. Check thermal cut out, door switch and thermal fuse before suspecting board. Obviously need model to give you more accurate info.

Washer doesn't start / lights up. Breaker is OK, electrical outlet too... What could be the problem ?? Control Board.. Fuse


More than likely it is the computer board. However it can be also caused by the main power switch or the door interlock switch. There is no fuse, the main power supply is part of the computer board. The switches are very easy to check but the front display panel of the dish washer needs to be disassembled as access to the main computer board is required. A multimeter it is also required for the switch verification. Make sure the main power cord of the dishwasher has been unpluged. Removing the front display panel it is not difficult. Once the front display panel is removed you have access to the main power switch and the door interlock switch. Unplug the power cord from the dishwasher and remove the connectors from both switches. Verify continuity on both switches using the multimeter. If you have electronics back ground skills you can also verify if the main computer board has power; for this you need to have both switches connected and the door interlock switch latched. You should be able to measure 110 volts AC on the two wires comming out of the main power switch connecting to the comptuter board.

Good luck!

Kenmore Elite Model 110.42926 202 after setting the desired cycle will not start when you push the start button


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.



Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.



Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.



Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.



Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.



Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.



Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Dryer does not run has power front panel lights work/come on dryer just won't start.i waqs told the door was shut hard.right before this problem started. any ideas


Can be that the door switch had been damaged and it could be a reason that the safety circuit is not contacting to give the control board an OK to proceed.
So check at the lock point for the switch and test with a multimeter in Ohms to see if this contacts.

York gas furnace doesn't come on at all. It has electronic ignition, thermostat seems ok, circuit breaker Ok. There is nothing going on at all. It doesn't try to light.


First find the electronic control board. Is the diagnostic light on and flashing a code? If not look for the automotive type fuse on the board. It is a 3 amp. Is it blown? Next look for a screw in fuse in the ssu switch on the side of the furnace. Is it blown? If all the fuses are good is the door switch behind the front cover working? Is the door properely installed? If all these items are working, you should have power to the furnace. If these items are ok, check for 24volts at the transformer. Check the terminals not black and white. If you have voltage there, remove the red and white thermostat wires on the control board. Next take jump wire and jump the red and white terminals. This rules out the stat and stat wiring. Your furnace should start. Check the status light for any further problems and crossreference the flashing light code to fix.

No start, no lights. It appears to not get power


It could be the door sensor is not engaging.

There is a tab that engages in the door when closed. The tab engages in a switch in the door telling the unit that the door is closed and OK to operate.

The switch often moves over time and is usually adjustable. Two screws hold it in place. Or you bend the tab to fit properly.

Try operating the switch with a screwdriver and see if the electronics turn on. If they do it is simply a matter of aligning the switch and tab.

Often the cause of the misfit is the original installation. The unit should be screwed to the underside of the counter top and the legs adjusted for a firm fit.
