sometimes, multiple tries are needed to get dryer to start. Seems to be getting worse. Do now know if opening and closing the door has anything to do with it. Sometimes I think it does and other times, I do not think it matters.

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Have you tried testing taking the back off and vacuuming the dryer out? Sounds like you may have lint built up on the thermostat and parts causing the dryer not to be able to breath which can cause this issue.

Will disregard it. It is late tonight and I will not take back off the dryer until tomorrow morning. I do have a multimeter. What connections should I check and what should the readings be?
