Have the machine checked out by an electrician as the filter should not be alive.
the fault will be in the machine wiring
give this an urgent priority as the unit may be alive and if you or any one else touches it , it may cause electrocution

SOURCE: Dryer does not turn on

Sounds like the motor relay is not functioning. Sometimes the motor will work if the button is pushed but will stop when the button is released. This is caused by a loose wire at the motor or a bad motor relay.

SOURCE: dryer sounds like there is change on the outside

i had the same problem last week on my dryer, turns out that the felt on the drum where its attached to the housing has worn off, my dryer is so old. i did do careful inspection, by sticking my head in the drum and turning it by hand and looking into the seam. it does sound like there was a coin in there, but it was just metal to metal scrapping. im off to my buddys used appliance store to look for a felt seal.plz rate-bozcro

SOURCE: the dryer is not getting

Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the blower motor to make sure it is not faulty, also check the blower fan blade to make sure it is not broken or plugged with lint.
Check the Door Switch.
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape and running the dryer to check to see if the element is red or not,
or with an ohm meter check the two terminals of the thermostat/thermister
after you have removed the wires, the thermostat/thermistor should have/show continuity across the terminals.
If the coil heats up, or the thermostat/thermistor shows an open circut
then replace the thermostat/thermistor as it is defective.
If it overheats the dryer will not operate properly.
It's located on the blower housing.
It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter/continuity checker, if no continuity,
replace it)
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.
For video and pictures on how to replace an element go to the following website, it will give you an idea what you are in for:

Small tube in carb floods engine (fuel keeps leaking out)

The float in the bottom of the carburettor is stuck. The primer feel different because the float bowl in the bottom of the carb never seals. Try tapping it gently with the broom handle again, just a sharp tap. If that doesn't work, you need to remove the carb and remove the float bowl on the bottom.

Door handle of my Amana freezer drawer fell off on one side. Screw is inside the handle. How do I fix? AMANA ABL2227FESThanks

It looks like the silver handle is pushed onto the black plastic insert, which must be removed from the handle, fixed to the door and then the handle reattached.

I need help on how to instal a dryer belt on a ge model dde7206malwh. Thank You

One person can do it but It is better if you have 2 people to help. Take it outside and sit it on a table or a tailgate, you cannot fix it on the floor. Get a friend to hold the idler steady using a broom handle while you pull the idler away from the wall till it is over the motor pulley. Stick the broom handle in there to hold it to keep yourself from being cut by the sharp edges of the stamped metal while you arrange the belt config. Then apply leverage on the idler a hair so the handle can be removed and have your helper remove the broom handle. The tension holds the belt on there. I have photos HERE

Where does the static wire go in the handle. It fell out and now I am having trouble getting it back in. I fixed the cord myself. Model XL2100rh

If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

My bager 5 seems locked up when you hit the switch it hums how do I get it unlocked.

One day years ago, our new garbage disposal got stuck, and started humming instead of grinding. My mom turned off the switch, then she grabbed a wood-handled broom and stuck it down in the disposal. I was wondering, what's that lady doing.

She took the wood handled broom and placed it on the disposal cutter wheel that was stuck. Then she wedged the broom against the sink opening, She pushed the cutter wheel forward until it was free. Then she showed me that the cutter wheel is supposed to spin freely even when the switch is off.

That's how I learned to un-stick a garbage disposal.

2001 beetle stopping after running 10 mins. vehicle was hit on right side no airbag or window damage all wiring intact remote will open locks won't close or open rear hatch. Fuel pump,filter checked...

Do you have a "spark"? test: remove a sparkplu wire from a convenient sparkplug and lay it down on a nearby metal ground. Crank ignition and look for a spark from the end of the cable to the metal ground.

Spark? Then it may be the fuel safety cut-off switch (with a delayed reaction) ... mounted in the back, inside a side panel. It cuts off fuel when it senses a collision.

No Spark? ... ignition relay switch or the cable from starter solenoid, most likely.

Leaf blower

One suggestion, unscrew the spark plug and reconnect the high voltage wire. In a very dark area move the plug so that the plug thread touches some metal on the engine. Pull the starter cord. If you don't see a spark, remove the two screws on the handle and see if two wires are attached to the Stop Engine Switch. Remove one wire and bend it away from metal and try to see spark when pulling the start cord. If spark occurs, the Switch is shorted and needs replacing.
