Take the console panel off and check this start switch it should make contact when you push the start button.

took back panel off, can't get piece off how do u know it makes contact, not plugged in
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
That to be safe you need a meter to check, or replace it, its a common problem with that model.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
don't have meter, can i get part fast somewhere, still don't know how to take off
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
Its clipped in from the back.and only an appliance parts store would have this part.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
is the part u showed me universal, will it fit, it looks smaller
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
Its not universal and that switch is for your model number.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
if i do this and it don't work, should i buy another or call sears repair
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
You said the power was good at the dryer so you must have a meter to check the start switch, O h M it out to see if it makes contact.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
