The motor switch has seized you may try taking the dryer apart down to the motor and see if you can move the centrifical switch bushing it is behind the motor switch and has 2 springs on it move in the direction away from the switch several times and it may free up and be ok otherwise you will need to replace the switch

Clothes dryer shorts every time I turn it on


I assume this is electric dryer vs gas. You most likely have a electric heating element that has broken, and the wire is shorted to cabinet. If you can see inside element, you can often spot the broken wire. Don't try to fix element, you can't splice heating wire, it wont work. Buy a new element.

You can buy the control board yourself for about $200 and install it yourself. It could be a fuse inside that had blown too, Email me at buffalonymann@yahoo.com if you have any questions

Hi,
I think the problem still lies with the thermal switches, they have a tendancy to corrode where the spade connector attaches to the body (see pic)
Hope this helps......Dave26db4bc.jpg
