Thank you!

when you program a cycle and press start does the time display count down or stay the same? and of course it will take 1 min for it to count down to the next lower number.

It counts down
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok if it counts down the the issue is in the motor circuit and not the start circuit.

Next you need to remove the lower front panel of the dryer ( two screws on the very bottom of the panel ) and on the blower housing (left side center area) is a thermal fuse it is rather hidden on the blower housing up at the very bottom of the door.

#1 Unplug the dryer from the outlet.

#2 the thermal fuse has two light blue wires on it remove those two wires (they just pull straight off )

#3 take a paper clip and join the two wire to each other (thus bypassing the thermal fuse)

Make sure that the paper clip nor the two wire leads touch bare metal and plug the dryer back in program it and try to push start to see if in fact the dryer now starts.

Let me know what it does
