What exactly happens when you try to start a cycle?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I push the power button, the dial is already set to which cycle I want. I hold down the start button and it doesn't start

Okay have you checked the belt? Do you have a multimeter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Have no idea??? How to do either
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.
Can you purchase a multimeter so you can test the thermal fuse?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I can't afford anything... I ran2 cycles prior to this with no trouble
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do I need to look at
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.
First check that the belt is not loose or broken. If you turn the drum by hand, does it have any resistance?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I can turn it
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.
If it don't have any resistance then the belt is broken or damaged. This involves taking the entire unit apart. You need to check and make sure the belt is not broken or damaged. If so replace it, if not broken or damaged then you have a faulty door switch or a blown thermal fuse.
