Our dryer all of a sudden will not switch on. Could this be the relay part #AP 2974634 it just stopped working suddenly with no warning, I checked all circuit breakers it seems to be getting juice?
Answer Hello Joe. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Also check the heater and thermal fuses and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Hope this helps.

My dryer will turn on but as soon as I release the button it turns off. If I hold or tape the button donw it runs the full cycle.
The most likely cause of failure would be the centrifugal switch on the motor. If the centrifugal switch is bad the motor 279827 will need to be replaced.
