Major Appliances/Dryer repair


I have a GE DX4500 dryer.  When I turn the start button, the dryer does not start.  Power is on.  Can this starter switch be replaced? Easy or difficult?  Is there a part number to order this item?

There is quite a few other things this could be in addition to the start switch.  Normally the switch is a two wire switch.  Do you have a voltage meter and know how to use it?  First thing I always check is the power coming to the unit.  If I go out on 10 dead dryers, 1 or 2 of them will have household power problems.  Door switch would cause the same symptom.  Contact in the timer assembly, thermal safety thermostat, burnt wire, and the list goes on.  When replying, please include the entire model number found the the inset where the dryer door closes against.

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
