Dryer would not start.

After checking power to the outlet, I removed the back panel to remove the Control Panel. Testing the timer shoed I had nothing leaving the timer (Door was closed and I held the Push/Start button at the same time. Ordered and replace new timer - still didn't work. Teseted the door button and found it corroded. Tried cleaning contacts and got it to work for a split second. Ordered Door Switch and Push/Start Button -just in case. Replaced door switch - dryer works fine!

Dryer would not require start button to start, and buzzer would only stop after dryer door opened.

Disconnect dryer power supply, remove back cover from console, by removing 5screws. Pull out start switch using screwdriver to release plastic locking clips, disconnect wiring harness, reconnect wiring harness to new switch, and slide new switch into the mounting location, allowing the locking clips to engage. Reinstall back console cover, reconnect power supply, and test.

Dryer would not start when starter switch was pushed.

Installed new starter switch but it turns out that was not the problem. After checking the wiring diagram I tested the door switch and found that it was faulty. I jumped across it behind the control panel and now the dryer works fine.I'll replace the door switch later. If you do has I did remember that the dryer will then run with the door open and is dangerous. My mistake was I did not check the old starter switch with the ohm meter right off, silly me.
