The dryer would not start, it was dead, opened and slammed the door shut, it worked fine. 2 days later it went dead again, sounds like the door switch, any ideas?

Sounds pretty good, actually. Insert screwdriver on either end of bottom/top panel and lift. Find the door switch and bypass it for a quick fix (just remember that dryer will operate when you open the door - not recommended if small children are present in the home). My advice is to replace the switch.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

How to replace door switch on old kenmore stac.dryer 110.88752792


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 online for the part repairclinic.com has it for $14.00 not bad

Dryer won't come on


Was it the dryer door he slammed shut or the house door? If it was the dryer door, then TheMobilian's answer is on the nose. If it was the house door that was slammed and it tripped the circuit breaker to your house, then you have something else entirely going on. Does your dryer have an electronic control panel (totally smooth surface), or does it have the knobs and buttons? What model number do you have?

Car shuts off for no reason when I shift


It sounds like you have a bad Ignition Control Module. When they are cool they work fine, but when they get hot, they **** out.
