We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 1 Panasonic Dryer models
You count on your Panasonic dryer to keep your family in clean, wrinkle-free clothes. Once in a while, this reliable appliance may have problems starting. If this happens, there are some simple steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem and get your dryer back to top-notch working condition.
If your dryer doesn't start, the door may either not close properly or may send a message to the dryer that it's open even if it's shut. Check the dryer door catch to see if it's latching properly, the door strike to see if it's damaged and the dryer door switch to see if it's properly sensing whether the door is open or closed. If you find a irremediable problem with any of these elements, browse Sears PartsDirect for compatible dryer repair parts to find the replacement you need.
When you click the push-to-start button on your dryer, a switch behind the button makes an electrical contact that allows the dryer to start heating and spinning. If this switch doesn't make the proper electrical connection, it needs to be replaced.
As you continue your dryer troubleshooting, pay attention to the dryer's electronic control board. This vital part controls the timing and function of every part of the dryer. It's an expensive part, and it's hard to tell if it's damaged in the absence of obvious external signs, so you probably need to call an experienced repair technician if the electronic control board is causing your dryer to fail to start.
