Question:

Our dryer won't start quite a bit and when it does, it sometimes shuts off early. The only way to get it started again is to hit the top center of the dryer. I have recently replace the top bearing and a few other parts, but before i go and replace more switches I was wondering if there was a common issue? I have check the door switch and it makes and breaks at less than an ohm.

Answer:

Hi Jim, Thank you for the question. I woudl first check for any lose connections in the wiring.If you can hit the appliance and have it start then there is something lose. You can check the Interlock Switch and the Door Catch to make sure they are secure as well. Hope this helps!

Dryer would not start

The end repair was very simple and took minimal effort. The time and difficulty was all in the testing. I disassembled the dryer and removed the drum and then hard wired each thermo-fuse to determine where the fault was. After test all of those I was stumped. When I opened the door the light would not come on so I assumed it was a power fault closer to the source. However after all of my testing I couldn't find anything wrong. I then removed the light bulb and realized it was burned out which led me to the door switch being the fault. I removed the switch and soldered the three wire together and the dryer started right up! All I had to do was order a new $15 part, unsolder the wires and plug them in. Would have been so much simpler if that light bulb hadn't of been burned out causing me to over think my diagnosis. This was my first major appliance repair and I did it with only the help of the parts diagram provided on the website.

The dryer would not start

Doing some simple troubleshooting with the volt-ohm meter I determined that the door switch was failed.

The replacement door switch restored the motor circuit keeping my dryer in action.
