My dryer was working fine prior to not working. My daughter put a load in the dryer and push the button to start it and nothing happened. I felt heat when the selector was on one of the cycles, but the tub was not spinning. I'm able to hear the timer ticking and the dryer isn't equipped with a light. I'm wondering if the push to start button element went bad.
Answer Charles, It doesn't sound like a failed start switch. It does sound more like a broken belt, or a defect in the motor. " I felt heat when the selector was on one of the cycles, but the tub was not spinning". There should be no heat in the dryer drum, unless the motor is running, this would indicate a broken belt, with the motor running, or a "stuck" centrifugal switch in the motor.
