Unfortunately we were not there either...Could be a wire off in the motor area...Or possible the wires switched around on the door switch..

More detail would help. What you just gave me I already suspected. Could you tell me what wires are involved in the door switch and how I would know what went where. After the guide saying to be extra sure what wire was where when removing the front and door made me suspect mixup.
Appliance Technician: Bob L Your Appl Pal, Home Appliance Tech replied 8 years ago

I apologize for the brief answer..But there really is not much i can do from here if the wires are in the wrong position..kinda going into it blindly...I do have a wire diagram in my database which should help..What you would need to do is check the wiring ...The wires on the diagram are coded by color..Thanks Bob

O.K. so where on this diagram would the door be located. I am assuming he crosswired something in the door area.
Appliance Technician: Bob L Your Appl Pal, Home Appliance Tech replied 8 years ago
If you read in small print in the lower left hand area..It says "door switch"...The wires are Yellow ....Green...White...

Sorry, I hit the wrong button --- Thank you for your time. I will see if I can figure out from this info.
Appliance Technician: Bob L Your Appl Pal, Home Appliance Tech replied 8 years ago
If the dryer worked fine before...Then it has to be something simple...The key is to not be pulling wires apart and to use the wiring diagram...Taking pictures will even help when it comes time to reassemble...Thanks Bob
