that could be a few different things ,broken belt,there's a switch on the belt pulley that stops the dryer from starting as a safety if the belt breaks,you didn't send the model number next time send it,open the door,look around the opening where you put the clothes in and you'll see a tag with the model number on it,could be a bad thermal fuse,high limit thermostat,the only way to tell is by getting in there with a meter and check it,the easiest thing to do is take the lid off and grab the belt and pull on it to see if it broke,check the door switch,push it in and out and make sure it's working,also on the back where the cord connects make sure you have 240 volts there if it's electric,if it's gas then you know you already have power because the light is on.if you need more help send model number and do a few checks and i can help you out.also have you seen any error codes come up,if so send them.
Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.
CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.
NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.
If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings
Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.
Lastly check ut push start button for continuity with a meter when pushed in the on position, it may have gone bad.
Sounds like main board fault. Contact the authorized service center for Philips. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Sounds like the lid lock itself is bad, be sure to check the connections at the control board. There should be a tech sheet inside the front panel towards the top left. This can help you check the error codes and wiring diagrams.
seethis causes and fix it. God bless you User Control and Display Board
If the washer won't start, the user control
and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.
If the washer won't start the timer might be
defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components
before replacing this time
If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown. Thermal Fuse
If the washer won't start the thermal fuse
may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing
video for more information.
Line Fuse and Holder
If the washer won't start the line fuse might
have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be
replaced. Main Control Board
If the washer won't start the main control
board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and
Door or Lid Latch Assembly
If the washer won't start the lid switch
assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid
switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any
electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches
should have continuity according to their design.
Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly
If the washer won't start the door lock
assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically
or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter.
The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Incoming Power Problem
If the washer won't start check to see if
there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged
into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is
dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the hom
If the washer won't start, check to be sure
there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the
power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the
power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
