Why won't my dryer turn on?


Electric dryer no start does nothing

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 ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Dryer won't turn off


Relay stuck closed in control circuit, usually the door interlock. Slam the door shut a couple of times to see if it frees the contacts.

You have to slam the dryer door shut. Sounds silly... but it worked. Guy said it has to do with it being stacked??

Dryer won't come on


Was it the dryer door he slammed shut or the house door? If it was the dryer door, then TheMobilian's answer is on the nose. If it was the house door that was slammed and it tripped the circuit breaker to your house, then you have something else entirely going on. Does your dryer have an electronic control panel (totally smooth surface), or does it have the knobs and buttons? What model number do you have?

Dryer won't start after I slammed the door


The door switch is probably in the next room somewhere.

Look in the hole around the edge of the dryer opening. There should be a switch in there. It's most likely been pushed back so the door post/actuator does not engage it.

Switch need to be put back in place.

The light will not turn off and dryer wont run


CK,
There's a switch behind the dryer door. Push it in and out with your finger, you should here it "click, click, click" and the light should go on and off. If it doesn't, you'll need to replace the door switch.

If that's the case, I'll need the full model number. It's on a sticker on the front panel behind the door. (it should be like three digits, decimal point and about 7 more numbers... 110.*******) With that number, I'll be able to look up parts for you and guide you through this easy repair.
