The start/run switch on the motor is stuck, usually with lint. Clean everything with a vacuum while you are in there.

My husband just fix my GE Dryer GFDN240WW "Start Button broke" issue. Here is what he did; He removed the control knob to access the phillp screw. Unscrewed screw and lift up on control to remove panel and unhook power supply. Then set control panel on face. Unscrewed 5 larger screws to removed black plastic panel w/ mother board attached. Set board aside and located power button which was broke off. Compare button to all other buttons on panel to see how they are attached to panel. My husband used Plumbers Goop from Lowes store to attached power button like the others. Then he reassembled the dryer and presto! It works!

Frigidare AEQ600es2 does not heat. Reports error code E68, but all buttons seem to work.

You will nee The error code E68 is a stuck button error code. I recommend checking each button to make sure it loose in the plastic console. The button should rock side to side a little bit. If all the buttons are loose you can try to reset the unit control by unplugging the dryer for two minutes. If the error code comes back you will need to replace the unit control.

Dryer won't turn on. Door is closed and has power. Button seems spongey.


The usual thing wrong when a dryer will not start is a blown thermal fuse. I wrote this tip about how to check the thermal fuse.

I need replacement remote charger (part #5-2582) for my GE 2.4GHz speakerphone and answering system # 27958.

I love my old GE coded/cordless phone set, but the cordless phone's buttons won't dial anymore; they get stuck. Can I get a replacement for the cordless phone only? The charging cradle seems to still work. It is Model # 27958GE1 A. Thanks!

Hoover 5020D Dryer door won't open... button is

You probably have a coin or other metal object stuck at the bottom of your dryer door preveinting it from opening. Take a table knife and see if you can push the object upward to allow the door to open..

When I turn on the dryer you can hear the juice going thru like its about to start but nothing happens, drum doesnt move. I checked, its not stuck. dryer only 1.5 yrs. old- happened suddenly

most of the time on your model it is the dryer main fuse that pops,you can pop the top and look to the right of the drum on the back wall all you will see a little round fuse,you can get it from your local appliance parts store for around $10,if it happened all of the sudden could have just been a power surge pop it-mike

Buzzer won't go off when dryer is stopped - All else works fine - must leave door open

Fiddled around with the start button. It had gotten stuck in the on position and when I moved it around it freed up. I consider this a temporary fix only and have already ordered a replacement switch.
