Fisher and Paykel Dryer will not spin, motor buzzing

I have a Fisher and Paykel Dryer front loader model ED56AU. Nearly everytime we start the dryer, it sounds like the motor is buzzing and it will not spin. If you move the drum around a bit and hit start again, then it MITE spin. Have to be lucky thou. Just wondering if the motor needs replacing or is it some solonoid? The dryer is about 4 years old. Thanks.

Take top off. set it going and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and keeps going then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part

Buy a new 7uF Capacitor - located next to the motor. Unscrew the back, get a tourch and the white cylinder thing need to be replaced. Ebay $15 - be careful not to touch the cables as 240v is there(like a battery, there is power even if unplugged).

Dryer won't start. Pressing "Start" button just emits 4 beeps.


does the drum turn? if it doesnt you can assist it and see it that is problem, have to remove top and push it. that would be capacitor on motor or jumper the door closed switch and try to spin.
