Drier won't Start.

I think I need to change the Signal switch (Buzzer) No continuity on switch, switched off or on. Surely it's bad? will that cause the drier not to start?

Thanks.

No that's not it. The buzzer shouldn't affect starting. Please verify your model number. Here are some basics to look for.
1. check power for true 240v
2. check push start switch for continuity when pushed
3. check for continuity on door switch when shut
4. check to see if drum belt is broken
5. depending on your model # check fuse

Sorry but please double check your model number. Not finding the one you've listed.
Depending on you model there may be a fuse on the back wall near the terminal block.
As for the buzzer, I am not sure if it is bad, it may not show continuity on or off. Nontheless it should not prevent your dryer from running.
