Dryer would not activate unless jarred by striking with the hand.
Investigated inside control panel for loose wires or parts. Removed back of control panel and back of dryer and used a vacuum to remove lint from every possible contact. Problem not fixed.
Lifted top of dryer and cleaned inside. Struck door close switch with a screw driver and dryer started every time. Replaced switch.
Works every time. This is the 3rd repair in over 20 years. Each time the dryer works as though new.
