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.

Check the door switch. Turn on dryer as you push in on switch where the door catch is and see if it starts . when closed the pin may not be pushing it in.

My dryer (frigidaire stackable washer/dryer) just stopped working, the washer is fine, but when I start the dryer nothing happens. I set the time and push the button and NOTHING.


Howdy: The circuit breaker could have popped in the motor. Maybe the selector on/off switch has gone south. Will need a AC meter to check voltages from switch to motor. Doug

Problem with top dryer on stackable frigidaire


The switch may be bad or just not engaging when the door is closed. To test it you could tape something to the inside of the door right where the door meets the switch and see if it comes on. I did that and it worked. I use it as a temp. fix.
