SOURCE: Push power button nothing happens ?????

Hmm. There should be a hole you can empty the water tank. Please check if it is full of water and try reconnecting it.

SOURCE: Nothing happens when I push the start button.

There is a micro switch on the door to stop the dryer when you open the door during normal operation. Unplug the dryer and locate the switch by visually inspecting around were the door contacts the dryer and identify if you can remove the switch without opening the dryer top. If you cannot remove the switch from the front try to access the switch by lifting the top of the dryer cover off. Unplug one of the wires and touch the wire connector you removed to the other connector on the switch using electrical tape to insulate and hold it in place. Plug the dryer in and see if it works. If it does you need to order and replace the switch. If it does not the start switch could be bad and you will need to test it with an Ohm Meter which will be the safest way to test the switch.

Was working fine. Tried a few days later to dry a load and the starter wouldn't turn load on.


First. Check voltage if its a electric type flip breaker all the way off than back on sometimes breaker flips halfway. Then check for a thermal overload near blower housing usually long and white if it fails motor won't run

Nothing happens when I push the start button to dry a load of clothes. I have checked the circuit breakers and the plug in and the door is securely closed.

Dryer will not start


Check the door switch. It acts as a safety and will not allow the machine to start. The Thermal fuse just keeps the heat form coming on.

Dryer won't turn on...


Try pushing the breaker pair off, then on and re-check the dryer. If still nothing, pull the power plug and check the two slanted slots for ~220 volts AC. If you don't have access to a voltmeter, or a friend with one, call an electrician to check. If you read the voltage stated, then the problem is within the dryer. Check the back of the machine for a reset button.

Hello beeps299,
If your Electric Dryer isn't doing anything at all, I would encourage you to do a few basic checks..
First off, are you sure that the circuit breaker feeding power to the dryer hasn't tripped?
If that's OK and you are sure you have power getting to the dryer then the next thing to check would be the door interlock switch. If that is not working properly when the door shuts, that disables most other functions. The switch could be defective, the wiring that goes to it may have gotten disconnected or damaged so that is where I would start to look first....
Hope that helps.
Other things that may impact the dryer are non-resettable fuses inside but I wouldn't go that route until you've checked the basics.. Let me know what happens after your initial checks are done..

Regards,
Rick
