Question about Dryers
Panel lights up but dryer will not start when pushing start button it just beeps
If you get a series of four rapid beeps when you push START in an attempt to start your dryer, your door switch (interlock) is defective. I have experienced this problem before and it is a fairly simple problem to fix. The easiest way to tell is to open the dryer door and push the door interlock in by hand. Hold it in while pushing the START button. If the dryer starts, then all you have is a simple problem of the door not closing properly. If the dryer still does not start, however, replace the dryer door interlock. The interlock should also make a definite "click" while pushing it in. If it does not, the switch is worn out. Some dryers have an upper and lower door interlock. If yours is equipped with two interlocks, make sure they are both functioning and that the door is latched properly. I have experienced problems where dryers doors with two interlocks would close at the top, but not at the bottom. The dryer would not start as a result. If you can provide me with your model number I can get a part number and price for you. I can also tell you where you can get the part and provide instructions on how to replace it. Let me know. I hope this helps you.
