Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

When I push the start button nothing happens; no "resistance" from the button, no clicking sound. Power is on as light inside dryer goes on.


Hi- Sounds like you just need a start switch but possibly a door switch (the dryer won't come on if it thinks the door is open). Depending on what model you have the start switches usually aren't too expensive and easy to replace. Just be SURE that the dryer is unplugged anytime you work on it. Hope this helps...

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

Dryer won't start when button is pushed. The


This is a broken belt symptom. On some models when the belt breaks the idler drops down and hits a micro switch that kills power to the run windings. So that the motor won't run and cause the heater to come on. This is a safety feature. Post your model number for a more precise answer.

Just stopped working still has power-inside light comes on and timer makes noise when you turn dial but does not start when you push start button


This sounds like the door switch. But it could also be the non-resettable thermal fuse inside. Open the door, depress the door switch until it clicks, and while holding it in see if the dryer starts.

Dryer will not turn on. makes slight buzzing sound when button is pushed. Light goes on, power is on.


Sounds like the motor is gone. Try opening the door and pushing the door swithch inside the dryer door cavity.This may take two people but while holding the door switch, push the start switch and turn the dryer drum at the same time.(in a clock direction) If the dryer starts it means the moter is shot.

Dryer want start up when you push start button but its power up light comes when open door


You most likely have a blown thermal fuse inside the dryer or a bad door switch. First reset your home breaker. some times the breaker will drop a 110 volt leg and will work if you reset it.

Dryer won't start; light stays on whether door is open or closed.


Sounds like the door switch is not functioning or shorted......in other words the dryer thinks the door is open so it won't turn on.
