Dryer would not start.

Hard part was to figure out which part was bad. Checked out all thermo OL and fuses. The start button was only thing left. To change, take off back cover. Pull off knob from front. Pull off wire connector. From the back, pull back the top locking tab and rotate switch 25 degrees. Part fits into a square hole. Reassemble.

Dryer kicking off

It takes longer to get the dryer out in the open to work on it than to do the repair.

The dryer would not run.

After checking the temperature safeties, I replaced the Push-To-Start switch. This did not solve my problem, so I replaced the Timer Switch assembly, which did solve my problem. Both switches are very simple to replace. Unplug the dryer, use your nut driver to remove the 6 screws holding the back control cover. For the Start switch, remove the control knob, remove the 2 screws holding it it. Unplug the wires, turn the switch housing 1/4 turn clockwise, and remove it from the opening. Reverse the process to install the new switch. For the Timer Assembly, just a bit trickier. Remove the knob, remove the 2 screws holding the assembly. Unlike the Start switch, the Timer Assembly has multiple wires. Pull the old timer assembly out, and, one-by-one, move wires from the old Assembly to the new Assembly, being sure to land them on the proper post. Once you have done this, return the Assembly to the mounting hole. A very simple repair. Even though I spent $160 chasing the problem, I still came out cheaper than calling a repairman.
