It may be the door switch, but if you hear a click when you push the start button then the motor reset button tripped. You should be able to set the dryer on its front side and see the motor reset buttons as there are two one trips one resets, push the reset in it should click and then plug it in and see if that helped. Hope this helps if not feel free to ask more info as I am more then willing to help Tim

first off the dryer should be on a entirely different circuit... so i would plug something else into the washer plug such as a lampo and make sure you indeed have power... if you do you could have one of 2 problems ... either the lid switch on the unit itself has failed and you would have to gain access to it and it can be tested with a meter to see if it is bad.. you can also by -pass the lid switch with a jumper to check... if this is not the problem then you may want to take a look at your timer to see if it is getting power and nothing is burnt up... this will require taken the console apart to get into unit... remember always disconnect poweer before working with safe and good luck.....

Eurotech dryer. ON light flashes on and off, beeps once, and still flashes then nothing happens, dryer won't start. Help?

The problem is that you stopped a cycle before the program knob reached the "STOP" (12 o'clock on the knob). All you have to do is turn on the machine, turn the knob to STOP, and wait a couple of seconds. You'll hear a tone and the ON/OFF light will stop blinking. Turn the program knob to the cycle you want and- viola! you're good to go!

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer wont start only washer or only dryer

Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

No electric to dryer,door light will not come on either when open

You must have a blown fuse. Check out this page I wrote on various dryer fuses and LOCATIONS
Note: A picture tells a thousand words right? Just being able to ID a fuse would be a plus and that is what I was thinking when I created the site. On this same site is how to get into your dryer, and Dead Dryer as well as other dryer wisdom.
