My dryer wont stay on if I push the start button it turns on and heats up but once I let go of the button it sits of rite away.


what's the brand name and model number,if it's a kenmore or whirlpool and says even heat with the lint filter inside most likely a bad even heat computer board or the motor relay both are up in the top console,if it's a g.e. you have a broken belt switch,there's a switch down next to the motor and belt pulley,it's just a cherry switch,it has a button that sticks out of the switch that hits the belt pulley,if the belt breaks then the dryer will only run when the start button is pushed in but the switch can break causing the same problem,also on the newer whirlpool it also can be a broken belt,good luck with your dryer

Dryer will not start but light comes on, heats drum okay. The dryer heats, the light goes off when the door closes, checked the drum and the belt is okay. When the start button is pushed nothing happens.

When you hit the power button it does not cut on i checked the breaker and when you open the door the light comes on


had this same problem... to fix it .. was easy enough... first the drum belt was broken which the pully flips and switch in the base.. so make sure belt is ok .. next i had a corroded wire on the heating element .. i had to fix that connection... once i fixed these two items .. the controls work fine agian and the dryer worked fine ...

P.s. the expert help here that i paid for .. was a complete waste of cash.

Kenmore dryer electric doesnt start


It sounds like the dryer drum belt is broken

there is a drive belt that goes all the way around the dryer drum and when you press start the drum starts turning unless teh belt is off or broken

You can change the belt or call and have service technician change it

My Maytag dryer won't start when I hit the start button


It sounds like that you have found the problem yourself. Remove the power cord and replace the terminal ends, or replace the entire cord.

My Maytag dryer won't start when I hit the start button


My dryer light comes on for my Maytag SDE4606AYW dryer when you open the door and I can hear the timer clicking but when I hit start the motor doesn't even attempt to start but there is obviously power. My dad just installed a new power cord to the dryer but this is a seperate issue as we were obviously unable to check the motor before we got a cord for it. He has years of electrical experience so I'm assuming he connected the new cord right. Any ideas on fuses in the dryer or why it may not be getting power?

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
