Check the start switch for continuity.

when u say start switch do u mean timer ????

b/c this dryer does not have an actual seperate push button or start knob.  its basically all part of the timer selector...... unless u mean door switch???  which in that case i have checked and working properly.


thanks

That's what I am talking about. You take the top cover off the timer carefully and their is a leaf switch that does the starting. Use a fingernail file to smooth out the points.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
