Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

That could be several different issue causing that problem, so the only way to figure out what is causing the problem is to follow the trouble shooting procedures listed under won't start cycle when start button is pressed on page 3 of the tech sheet I have provided below. You will need a ohm/volt meter for testing purposes as well. So if you have a meter and follow the tech sheet you will be able to know for sure what component is causing the issue.
