Question about Dryers
Please check the following.
On the inside of the door near the top in the middle above the opening seal, there is a small prong which is the door latch switch trigger. This prong may be missing or not pressing enough into the switch to activate the safety interlock. This prong mates with a small hole immediately above the opening in the front of the machine. If you use a pen or similar object you can carefully press the lever inside by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. If you press the start button the machine should start.
If the dryer did start then you can extend the prong using a small wood screw and screwing it into the end of the prong, or a tight wrapping of electrical tape.
A more permanent fix would be to remove the upper control panel using a torx 25 screwdriver(the screws are under the 4 white small disks around the door handle opening on the upper control panel) and re-seat the switch mechanism into its retaining slot. The only way to fix a broken prong is to replace the door or reattach the missing prong
If this did not fix the problem then it is possible that the belt has come off of broken. Removing the top of the dryer be removing the upper 2 torx screws at the back and sliding the lid backwards will allow you to see if the belt is loose or broken. If it is then the back of the unit will have to be removed using a torx 25 type screwdriver.
Be sure to remove power (unplug) from your machine prior to opening any of the panels.

Initially, pls check if there is a reset switch at the rear panel of the unit. If there, press on it and try again. If this does not work, unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of minutes, say 15 or so.
If the above does not work, pls posrt back.
Hope this be of initial help/idea.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
