You need to replace the door switch,sometimes you can do this without removing the front panel,unplug the dryer and with a flat blade like a putty knife get behind the switch body and pry it out being careful not to scratch the paint,mark the wires on the switch and get a replacement

Plugged in my Sonya apartment sized dryer and turned it on, it does not run at all. Is this a fuse problem? Please advise.

First make sure you are getting power to the outlet. Second thing to check is the door switch and the thermal fuse. Use an ohm meter and check for continuity through both switches. The door switch should have continuity when the door is closed and no continuity when the door is open. The thermal fuse should have continuity all the time.

Not turnining on got power everywhere, but am I supossed to have continuity every where on the door switch.

  1. the door switch is a 2 part switch,as in when the door is open and the light is on 2 of the 3 terminals will have continuity,when the door is closed the other 2 of the 3 terminals will have continuity so as for the dryer to start and run,there is 1 of these terminals that is common to the other 2 terminals so between that common terminal and either of the other 2 terminals depending where the switch is positioned there will be continuity and the other will be open,then when you change switch position then the open terminal will have continuity and the opposite terminal will be open circuited

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.

Change your timer. It has a malfunction in it. it's about a 100 dollar fix. Also your start switch may be bad.

Drum runs continuously

Sounds like you have a shorted relay in the door switch. If you know a good electrician or repair man I'd give them a call.
