Fridiaire dryer not turning on (another ??)

I have a 2 yr old Fridiaire Dryer, model # Fridiaire FERB7800DSO (which doesn't come up on any search engine by the way??).
I cleaned out the lint trap the other day in the middle of a load (force of habit) and the dryer has not turned on since then. I have removed the front lint trap and completely cleaned it out. Still won't turn on. When we turn the start knob it's just a quiet noise like there is something not connecting electrically. I have removed the back wiring panel just to make sure everything is still connected and has good contact with it's counter part.
Any other ideas?
************
your drive belt is broke. remove the front panel and then the top panel and you will see there is no belt around the drum.
********
well, I couldn't figure out the removing of the front & top panels, but I located a small opening at the bottom of the back panel next to the vent exhaust. I looked all around and saw a small/thin belt going around the drum. It was in place and very tight (leading me to believe that it's not the cause?) any other ideas? THANKS!!

Yes, I had the same issue. If I slam the door shut very hard then it would work. So I found the issue is the door safety switch not turning on when the door is closed. Simple fix is to put some masking or duct tape on the door so that it would push the switch when the door shuts. There is an indentation in the door in the top left corner where the door contacts the switch. This causes the door to not turn the safety switch on when closed. Simply fill in the indentation with a little tape and problem solved.

The dryer does not heat.


If the dryer runs but does not heat, then there are many reasons why this may happen.
Remove the vent line from the rear of the dryer and see if it gets hot. if so you need to unclog the vent line.
If it does not then you have a bad thermostat .
