Dryer won't start


If you look closely, there are 3 separate pins that must latch. One is a simple push-button style which latches no problem.
The others are little prongs at the top and bottom of door. The bottom prong latches cleanly, but the top one will not latch because the door is a bit too flexible.
Close the door normally, then firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab, then you press and hold the start button. The dryer starts normally.

My dryer wont come on its a hotpoint model #dlb2650bgl the timer is ticking the interior light comes on my husband put a multi-meter on the start switch and shows power what else could the problem be


The first thing I would check is the door switch. If it isn't closed the dryer should not start - although the timer would be active. If it won't tumble or heat then that is the first thing I would check and on Hotpoint that is a high failure rate.

Of course it could very well be a broken door switch.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying


Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
