Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

There is a thermal fuse and a belt switch that are common to cause the dryer not to start. Usually, the control will click the motor will not start. If, when you press start, you hear no click, it may be that the door switch is open, too.

  1. Do you hear a click when you press start?
  2. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
