Question and Answers


Dryer - front loading doesn't start


The buttons on an appliance seem to be the first things to go wrong. Not knowing if it will start or not would be a bad game of chance to play if you are in a hurry. While you wait for the expert to answer, you can check two similar questions below from previous posts if you like. They are not the same model number so your answer for the expert may be different but it may get you started in the right direction. Hope this helps!

From the description you give I suspect the problem is with the motor.

The start switch is a momentary switch an since you hear a buzzing sound it most likely is okay.

There is one simple thing to try if you can find and extra hand to help.

The idea is to open the door of the dryer and with one hand hold the door switch closed and with the other hand give the drum a push start as the third hand is giving the drum a push. See it it will start

If it starts this way then most likely the problem is with the 5303201237 motor.

Try this and reply with any additional details for further assistance.
