The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.


I would also check the thermal fuse as well. it is located on the vent duct or blower housing. If this fuse is damaged or tripped, it will not allow the dryer to run as well.

Hello,

The most likely part that has gone out is the thermal fuse. What will make that go out so quickly is a blocked vent causing excessive heat build in dryer. Did the dryer that this new one replaced havea similar problem of not starting or perhaps it ran but took forever to dry a load of clothing? if that was the case the venting caused the problem with both old and new dryer

Good luck
I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

I have seen this before. You have got to remove the housing for the filter. Blow out the area around the blower and get the junk out of there. Wash out the filter housing.
