Dryer starts as soon as the timer knob is turned to a cycle. If the door is opened, it will stop, but will start again as soon as the door is shut. The start switch no longer springs back like it used to and everything operates normally except you don't have to use the start switch.

My rotary start switch came loose from the back of the cabinet and wouldn't stay back on it. So we temporary fixed it so we can used the dryer until we could figure out why it wasn't staying in place. So now it don't want to turn on at all. I've checked the fuses and I've checked the wires. Can you please help me? I'm a grandmother of 5 grandkids living with me got to have a dryer!

I have GE GBXR463GD2WW dryer (made in Canada). The rotary start switch is different. There are two separate prongs at terminal #2. One has red wire from below (main motor). The other has a separate red wire from the buzzer. Terminal #3 has a brown wire from the timer. Terminal #4 is empty. Is this the correct part and if so how do I wire it?

When I turn the switch to start the dryer it makes a humming noise, but does not start. The humming stops when you let go of the switch. Does it just need a new rotary start switch or a new motor? Thanks!

The Dryer start switch is bad and I was looking at the part no. AP4980910. When I put in the model number that is what part no. it gave me, but looking at the picture and repair video it shows 3 wires on the switch and my switch has 4 wires going into it. Is this the right switch for the model number? The OE number was a Solteam 212D1094P004.

I ordered a new start switch. It has 3 contacts and my old switch has 4. Can I just leave the signal wire disconnected from the start switch or do I need to order another part? I cannot seem to find a switch for my model with 4 contacts.

My gas dryer is not same model as shown in demo. I have a separate button that starts the dryer. The knob does not work and when I took it off I tried to turn it with pliers but won't turn. I think it is the electrical switch. Would the switch in your demo fit my model?
