Hi Thomas,



Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I am sorry you are having this issue with your dryer.

The most likely cause of this issue is a bad door switch. Check to see if the light turns on properly when the door is opened and turns off when the door is closed. If the light stays on when the door is closed, then you have a problem with the door switch on the dryer.

Even if the light turns off, you could still have a problem with the door switch if it is not closing a contact to indicate to the control board that it is closed. The diagnostic test to check the door switch is provided in the image below. This can help you check this component. If the door switch is bad, it will need to be replaced.

If the door switch is not the issue I am also including the other checks for a no start issue below.

Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts

.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

.

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed;

Sears Parts Direct

.

Please perform the diagnostic testing I have included here and report back with your findings.
