If your comfortable working with electricity, open the control panel the start switch is on and take an insulated jumper wire and temporarily jump the switch terminals and see if this is your actual problem

I have an electric Ge Performance Wizard Dryer and on the button panel to space over the start button is broken.


get it fixed. it might not be a easy job as electronics are a problem if you do something wrong, it would make something else break. OR just deal with it if it works fine, but a button broken...life isn't perfect.

Dryer will not start


we had a very similar problem on our DLE3777W LG clothes dryer. It would power up normally, all drying options and speed and heat selections behaved normally but when you tried to start the dryer the start button and the time remaining indicator would flash until the unit was turned off. Called LG and Best Buy and they could only tell us to contact a repair shop. But I realized that the light was burned out inside, so I replaced it myself to avoid being charged by the technician I was about to call. The burned out light bulb WAS the problem, as soon as it was replaced the dryer worked perfectly. I think I saved a couple of hundred dollars with a $4 light bulb. I would have been mad to have the technician show up and charge me $120 just to show up, then an hourly rate and then the bulb.

Dryer will not start?


Hi, please get em model # so I can look this up and give you direction. If you have the back off, you can try and locate a duse (if this is a whirlpool brand) and test it. It has to have continuity to be good. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer shuts off when releasing start button. Will run while pressing down start button, but no heat is generated. Sears repair man wanted to replace Even Heat Control Board for $350. I bought the part...


replace the motor, as you are holding in the start button you are making the dryer run in the start winding of the motor, it is designed to only stay in this winding untill the centrifigual switch on the motor automaticaily switches it to the run winding, when the motor switch knows that it is using the run winding it closes the motor switch contact for the heater to come on, replace the motor
