Ok. It's the door. Dryer works if I open the door and hold the door switch. Problem is, the door isn't bent and it feels tight.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
Then the switch could be bad or the door may not be latching right. Normally it is the actuator on the switch that is not working good I would say you likely need a new door switch. All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Figured it out. Door switch is worn, not contacting the door.

Guess I didn't need you. Guess you get paid anyway.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
Yep that is what happens all the time
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
I am only paid a small amount of whatever you paid the site only after a good rating FYI
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It was weird, the site said I would be paying a $5 good faith payment but then charged me $28.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
I work through the site like you so I do not know what you were charged or anything
