Possible Solutions

Is the Control Locked Status Light On and Correct Cycle Selected?

Touch and hold CONTROL LOCK to lock or unlock the controls of the dryer.

NOTE: The Control Lock function may be enabled when recovering from a power failure. To unlock the control, touch and hold CONTROL LOCK.

The Cycle Control knob must be set on a Automatic Dry, AccudryTM or Time Dry cycle (on some models).  The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.  

Is Door Firmly Closed/Latched?

Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch.
