How To Repair A Dryer That Won't Start?
Always start at the outlet then move into the dryer to test components like start switch, door switch, thermal fuses, motor and possibly either timer or control board.

Power Supply 240 Volts at Outlet
The outlet will energize the dryer and is delivered with either a three prong or four prong power chord to the dryer terminal.

Test Fuses for Resistance and Continuity
You will need a volt meter to do this part. Set to read ohms. You will either get resistance (good) or you will get infinity (failed)... replace.

Check Motor For Proper Wiring
The motor is the main engine that turns drum but also engages the heater. You should contact a technician for this part.

Check Timer or Control Board For Directed Volts
The motor inside the timer advances the cams in a sequential process to open and close connection to heat and operate.

Dryer Won't Start

The first thing to do when your dryer won't start is to check the breaker at the electrical panel. Make sure the breaker has not tripped. If so, then reset breaker and try starting your machine.
If you still have no starting function take a look at the door switch, is it intact? If it is not functioning electrically or mechanically you will need to replace it and it will require getting inside the dryer cabinet. You will need a multi-meter to test for on/off continuity. If you do not know how to get into your dryer it would be advisable to call an expert technician.

At this point, another thing to check is the thermal fuse. This is located inside your dryer by the blower wheel housing and is a non resetting fuse. To test you will need a multi-meter. These tools can be purchased at any hardware or box store. If test fail replace and your dryer should start up. Depending on age of the dryer you could also have something happening with the timer, control board or the motor. For these diagnostics you should consult an experienced technician.

Other tips on dryers are when they will not start, drum will not tumble, taking too long to dry or how to get a dryer repaired.
