I have a tumble dryer which sometimes fails to illuminate the initial panel lights and thus fails to start, but other times the lights come on and the dryer will start. Occasionally it will start and then cut out after just a minute. The motor and the drum are good. I suspect the pcb behind the control panel. Any other ideas? This is a rear vented machine and the vents are all clear. There is possibly a tendency for the start-up lights to work more frequently when the machine has been turned off at the plug socket for a while. But this observation may be a bit random. Basically, the dryer sometimes turns on (ie the circuit is live) and other times won't. When it does light up initially, the full cycle will normally work.
