Amana LEA30AW dryer won't start
This model is controlled by a knob that you twist to the appropriate setting and then push in to start. Today I started the dryer and then twisted the knob to adjust the setting (from "more dry" to "less dry" or something like that) and it turned itself off with a jerk after being on for just a second. Now, I can't turn it back on. I can twist the knob all I want but, when I push it in, it doesn't click and catch like it used to and the dryer doesn't come on at all. Any idea what's wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
