Some start buttons do not click. But it sounds like maybe the door switch.

Probably have an open fuse. take off the back and by the exhaust is a skinny white fuse. jump the wires together and see if dryer will work. Replace it if so.

Push start button wont start dryer


This could be the non resettable thermal fuse has popped, or the door switch is not working. Open the door and press on the door switch until it clicks and push start to see if it works. If it clicks and still no start, then the thermal fuse needs replaced. UNPLUG the dryer, remove the back and you will see the white thermal that looks like a regular thermostat with 2 wires on it. It is located on the air plenum. There could be 2 depending on the exact model, but normally only one white one. These thermals usually pop when the temperature gets too hot as a warning something needs checked. Check your vent and be sure it is absolutely clear, and the flapper on the outside is not stuck with lint buildup.

Try hip checking it while you push the start button. If it starts you need a new contactor swich(relay) for the drum motor.

Try and manually move drum
