Can you jump the switch to see if it is bad? I have power but the dryer will not start.
Answer Hello Pete. No, test the switch and see if it closes when you press it. If so, it is good. Make sure the thermal fuse and the door switch is good on the unit as well. 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
How to install the push to start switch p/n AP3037944?
Answer Hello Fred. Pull the knob off the switch and unplug the unit. Then remove the screws securing the back panel and remove the back panel. Now release the tab and twist the switch to remove it and remove the wires. Reverse the procedure to install the new switch 3398096.
The on/off switch does not respond. All else seems to work. What else could be broken besides the on/off relay switch?
Answer Hello Pam. If everything else is working properly, and the on/off switch is not, you will need to replace the on/off switch 3398096. Hope this helps.
