Dryer control panle light up when power is turned on. Thermal fuses and fuses check ok. 220 to back of dryer. When start button is pushed you hear a click and nothing happens. Timer will count down.
Answer Hello John. You need to test the thermal fuse and make sure it is good. If so, then test the door switch aslo. Both parts should read closed for continuity. If both parts are good, and there is power to the motor, but the motor does not run, you will need to order and replace the motor in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

The dryer belt seems to be slipping. It thumps a lot and dries only partially. Do I need a new belt?
Answer Hello Denise. It sounds like the belt, rollers, and idler pulley are bad and will need to be replaced. Be sure and clean out the blower wheel good as well. Hope this helps.
If the belt breaks & the dryer won't work, will this switch need to be replaced so the dryer will work again?
Answer Hello Scot. No, you will need to replace the belt and make sure the idler is pushing the switch 279782 with the belt on to close the circuit. Hope this helps.
