There is a door position sensing switch that must close, when the door is closed, to activate the cycle. Will please see if the switch is operating correctly? Often it's required to push on the door, while starting the cycle. Thank you.

Expert:  John replied 9 months ago.

Yes, it is. The provides for safety, by disabling the dryer operation, when the door is open.

This is not the problem the switch is good

The switch is good ck out with the meter
Expert:  John replied 9 months ago.

Were you able to check the continuity with the door closed? Sometimes the switch actuator doesn't make the switch close, even though it checks OK, when manually pushed. If this is the case, adjustment of the position of the switch may be made.
