Dryer won’t turn on?
When you’ve got a lot on your plate as it is, the last thing you want to come across is a situation where your dryer won’t turn on.

What to look out for:
Drive belt - Once possible reason your dryer won’t turn on is because of a faulty drive belt. Some dryers have a mechanism where if the drive belt snaps it activates a switch that kills the power to the entire machine. This can be a relatively simple fix as it would require you to check and see if the belt is broken; if it is then all that’s needed is a simple replacement of the busted driver belt.
Thermal cut out fuse kit
Thermal cut out fuse kit - There are many different safeguards in your machine that prevent from such things like overheating or other types of temperature control. They typically consist of fuses and thermostats that are contained in a kit; so when your dryer won’t turn on you can simply check your kit to see if it’s the source of the problem.
Other types of issues
Other types of issues that could be contributing to your dryer not turning on can be things like your belt switch, main control board, or timer. Although these components are rarely the source of the problem, they’re still worth checking because if they’re the sources of the problem they would have to be replaced altogether.
