So this morning I went to put my wash into the dryer, and it didn't start. First I checked the door switch, and it clicked on and off when pushed, so that seems to be ok. Next I checked the breaker and outlet (with a multi-meter - yes it's eletric), and the power to the plug is fine.
When I push the start button there is a faint 'clicking' so I believe that the power into the dryer is fine, and it is a problem on the inside of the unit.
Does anyone have any suggestions on things I should start checking when I take the thing apart? Is there a common fail that is easy to find/fix?
The "click" is the exact same behavior that I had last month - caused by a blown heating element. It was difficult for me to remove and replace, but easy enough to find both ends (and I'm sure this varies based on your model) and do a continuity test on it. Mine didn't conduct, so it was clear that was the problem.
If you open up where the electronics are you may find a schematic diagram inside. I did on mine, which was very helpful for locating a blown fuse. There are several appliance DIY repair sites that have great information. Do a Google search on your exact model and you may get lucky.
