So first, there is no delay on this dryer. The hour glass symbol just means that it's in the middle of a cycle. If you select a cycle and the hour glass symbol appears but the dryer isn't running, it means that either your belt is broken or a thermal fuse below the dryer drum has failed and needs to be replaced because one of them is cutting power to the motor. There is a belt switch next to the tensioner pulley which cuts power to the motor if the belt breaks. You'd have to take the dryer apart and make sure the belt is still attached. If so, then you'd need a multimeter to test the fuses on the heater and vents to see which one has failed and needs to be replaced.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
