You already unpluged before the wall work, so the problem is isolated from the dryer from its plug. Take off the wall socket to inspect since it may have damaged. If you have the voltmeter, measure each pair of the terminal. they should have a voltage at least 110V since it is three-phase voltage. If there is no voltage then just replace the socket. Make sure to turn main power off when you do the replacement.

Dryer will not start, no power


Do you have power at the electrical plug?? If you have 110 volts then sounds like you have a thermal fuse that is blown. Easy repair that should cost between $10 and $20 and should take about 30-40 minutes. This is the most common reason a dryer won't start if it does have power. Make sure to unplug dryer from wall before working on it.

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


There are many variables!
Every year thousands of people die trying to repair electrical appliances them selves!

You are worth more than that!
Bless you!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!

Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Control Button Issues


My two year old unit would not do anything, but lights on. Then they would go off, and nothing but opening the door would get them on again. Replaced electronic panel in Feb. 2008, under warranty, still cost $80. Worked until first of June, 2008. Ordered a new panel. Repairman suggested that the wall outlet may be defective, even though the lights were on. The Unit also would have the lights come on by themselves. Outlet replaced, dryer worked fine. We still replaced the panel board, as repairman was not sure exactly what was the problem. I was told that the panel costs about $300.
