I have a Samsung front load dryer that has stopped powering on or powers on very intermittently and runs for a few seconds to a minute or so.  Dryer seems totally dead.  I'm thinking it's the power panel but would like some troubleshooting advice before I order one.  I'm a huge do-it yourselfer and would like to repair this dryer myself.

 

Thanks

Start with the simple stuff - check electric plug in for proper 120v/240v, then remove dryer top and look for wire connection issues from the power.

Those were the first things i've looked at.  I've connected it to two different outlets and the same result.  I've opened it up and looked at the connectors too.   Thnx for the help.

I just finished checking the wiring.  All the wiring looks good. Could i jumper out the power button by jumpering the com (white wire) to the on (blue wire) terminal or do i have to do something with the NO wire too?

When you say "dead" do you mean no display and no function, or is it just failing to start the drum turning or keep running ? Have you tried it with the vent disconnected?

Yes, it's totally dead.  No lights no functions.  I have it disconnected from the vent and the gas line atm.  Occasionally it will power on but it will only come on for a minute tops then shut off again.
