changed dryer belt--now will not turn on


Hi all,

I opened up my unit to clean out lint, and got it all put back together. This included taking off and putting the belt back on. But now, it will not turn on. The dryer light works, but not dryer. I am assuming a wire is loose somewhere, but could it be something else? It was working fine before I messed with it!

This is a GE Profile, space saver unit. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

That makes sense. I searched some door switch repairs, but mine is a stackable dryer. It seems that the wiring is a lot different in those. I can't really even determine which set of wires is for the door switch.
