The door safety switch has come loose or become misaligned. A little study will reveal how the switch works, & most likely why it doesn't. There should be a obvious way to adjust the switch, or call an appliance tech to do it for you. Unplug the dryer before attempting to work on this switch, as high voltage may be present.

220 dryer intermittently tech says dryer ok electritien says wiring 2 dryer ok and breaker ok

This sounds as if the door switch is weak or the actuator is damaged and turning off the dryer before the cycle is complete. Make sure your dryer door closes and latches properly. If it quits mid cycle again press on the door and then press start...DO NOT open the door until you try this. If pressing on the door and pushing start gets a cycle start then I suspect you have a door switch problem. However,,,,, a dirty / cl;ogged vent or an air blockage some where in the vent / dryer air flow ducting can give you intermittent operation also. Make sure you check the outside flapper valve where the vent exits outside the house also. Hope this helps. Cheers!

My dryer has been difficult to start lately especially if stopped mid cycle. The lights are all on but it won't start up. Today I only used it 2 times and it was very difficult to start after pressing many...

You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again

This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet

On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.

STOPS RUNNING IN MID-CYCLE

Try placing something like a chair with books or heavy objects on it in front of the door. Tip it with objects under the front legs and place objects on its seat until the pressure closes the door and the dishwasher starts. Put additional objects on the seat to insure vibration doesn't make the door pop open. If the cycle completes, the problem is probably the door switch. If not, the problem may be with the timer switch. If it's the timer switch the dishwasher will probably stop at the same position each time.
