Can be that the door switch had been damaged and it could be a reason that the safety circuit is not contacting to give the control board an OK to proceed.
So check at the lock point for the switch and test with a multimeter in Ohms to see if this contacts.

Samsung front load dryer


it sounds like the problem may be with the door lock. Having shoes bouncing around in the dryer they are bound to hit the door over and over possible causing damage to the lock. Try pushing on the door and holding it shut while you turn on the unit and see if it works.

Dryer won't heat up and light bulb turns on then off when door is opened.


Does the drum spin when you shut the door and start the dryer if so it wouldn't be a bad door switch. 1st. thing I would check would be the igniter with front kick panel off dryer it's located at the bottom right hand outer side of drum in the burner duct. here's how you check it with door shut start dryer and look for a orange glow from the igniter if no glow it's a bad igniter if it's not the igniter it could be a thermostat or a flame switch check these things if need more help I'll be glad to help.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW Dryer wont start


This dryer has 2 fuses, one behind the filter housing under a shield and another on the heater element. To get to them you first have to remove the door and then that will allow for the goalpost shaped front to come off. Then you can remove the hooks and lift the top. Then the front glide panel can be removed then the drum and then you can access and clean the innards.

Lights just blink on the dryer...same problem


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down

Brand new Kenmore Front load won't work


It sounds like the plug is mis-wired. The panel works off of 110v but the rest is 220v. If one line is swapped with the ground you will get 110 only.
