Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.
Ok one of three things can cause this typically, check the power to the unit first. Second check the door switch and make sure it is working. Then last check the thermal fuse above the vent outport, you have to remove the back of the dryer to check it. Here is a link to that part. You can unplug the unit and interlock and tape the wires together that go to the thermal fuse so they can not touch ground then plug it in and try it. If it works check the vent and make sure it is clear and replace the part.

Your replies seem odd. I gave you a link to the part and told you the location, but it is odd you would not even ask for a followup question and jump right to this service sucks, no help whatsoever? So I bet the fuse was bad though. Take care.

Did you find the thermal fuse?
Okay, any other questions?
Okay, don't need one, it has 2 blue wires going to it, does it not?
if you unplug the dryer, take the 2 wires from the thermal fuse, and tape them together, then plug in the dryer and see if it starts, if so then you know it was the fuse and will need to replace it. check that.
Calling a service out would have cost you over $100 plus parts, this is not a hard repair, why spend money you don't need to.
they should come off pretty easy, if needed use a pair of pliers.
Is the door switch broken?
Rarely does the start button break
in 20 years I don't think I replaced 3 start buttons
try holding in the door switch and see if it starts
This may be stupid, have you checked the breakers to make sure they did not pop on you?
I am sorry we cannot go further without a meter. everything checks okay, except it will not start. I am not sure if you are getting the voltage to the dryer. I apologize for wasting your time tonight.
Have a nice weekend

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the start button feels like it is held in, the timer has a bad set of contacts and will need to be replaced.
The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
Access is gained by removing the rear access panel from the control area. The knob will pull off and two mounting screws will come out, allowing the timer to be removed.
