I push the start knob and nothing happens. I checked for power at the receptacle and that is fine. I have replaced the door switch and still nothing. It is a Maytag Performa Dryer Model # PYE2000AYW. Approx. 10 years old.

    I looked but couldn't find any kind of fuse in the back. I had the dryer almost completely apart, I had the top, front off and the drum out. I didn't see any fuse.

My Amana Dryer ned7200tw has been working great till the last couple months. Lights come on, I can choose setting with the knob but nothing happens when I push the button to start.


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 sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings 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.

The dryer is plugged in, the receptacle has power. I set it to run and push the start button and nothing happens. Any suggestions?


If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Here is a video to walk you thru the repair. If you will post your make and model number of your machine, I will be able to point you the part you need.

Dryer won't start in Frigidaire FGX831CS0 stackable. Assumed it was a bad start switch because honey bunny had broken the knob off and was using a pliers to start it but have replaced that and still nada,...


Check the door switch. Turn on dryer as you push in on switch where the door catch is and see if it starts . when closed the pin may not be pushing it in.

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working


Hi,
Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else

Dryer doesn't turn on. Replaced the power switch


Power switch? Do you mean push to start switch? To see if you have a bad push to start 1st unplug. Open back top panel. Only do this test if you hae two wires going to the push to start switch. Wear gloves so you dont kill yourself. seriously. If you do have two wire then disconnect from push to start. Make sure they are not touching anything!!! Plug machine in. Tunr timer to 60 minutes. Touch wire together then pull apart. If machine kick on replace push to start. If not put everything back the way it was. Jump out door switch. If door switch is jump and still dont work then check motor test. Check harness on motor. If has a capacitor need to check with a cap. tester. You need a service manual to test wheather you have a bad motor. The manual will show you how to properly test a motor (each lead has ohms valve and you have to know what they are to test)

Kitchenaide dryer won't turn on. . .


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

The dishwasher doesnt turn on


1) Be sure the power is on, the door is latched, and the control is turned on. If absolutely nothing happens--in other words, nothing on the control panel is lit and there are no signs of life-- the appliance may not be receiving power. If the dishwasher's cord is plugged into a receptacle, check to see if it is a GFCI receptacle with a reset button. 20090521162623_gfci-receptacle.gifIf it is, push the reset. If it isn't or if the dishwasher's cord is wired directly to the electrical box, look for any other receptacles in the kitchen that have a reset and and try resetting them. (This is a longshot but it's easy to do and may solve the problem if the dishwasher is on the same circuit.) To test a receptacle for power, you can also just plug a hand-held appliance into it.
2) If that doesn't work, check the electrical panel for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse. If you find one, switch the breaker to "Off" and then back to "On" or replace the fuse.
3) If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer, or selector switch. To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch’s strike slightly, using a screwdriver (turn off the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel when working on it). Regards Fixya..

Dryer has power won't start cycle Hi - The light goes on inside the dryer, but when I close the door and select start nothing happens.


If that doesn't do it, (door switch), then check underneath the top and look for the thermal overload switch. Bypass it and see if it runs. If not, then start back at the wiring at the receptacle and then follow to the terminal block located in the back of the dryer. You could be getting power to the receptacle but it may stop there because of a loose wire. You could have lost a leg of power.

No power to control panel after power surge


1. No power to the dishwasherMake sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
