Ok you need Fisher and Paykel Part number 427616 it's a 7uF PRL M8 Stud. But any 7 uF 240volt AC Capacitor should work AS LONG AS YOU CAN MOUNT IT SAFELY where it won't hit anything or fall off it's mount. cheers

Dryer will not run

though there is power supply to the unit but don't start you have to check the door switch. if switch is ok and still unit don't start check the starting capacitor if equipped. replace if bad. if unit won't start even with a good capacitor and good door switch , then check the motor switch. if motor switch is bad replace the whole motor. switch and motor are sold together.thanks.

Where do I find the capacitor in a defy tumbledrier model DTD242

Capacitors are used on the motors to add additional starting torque. If your dryer has a cap, it will be on or near the motor. Dryer electrical elements do not have caps: they are resistive.

My Kenmore series 90 Gas dryer doesn't heat up.

This dryer is what I like to call a 4 wheel drive model. Because it has wheels on the front as well as the back. To access the gas assembly you pop open the bottom panel. Strat the dryer and observe the gas assembly. You should hear a click and then the ignitor should glow. Next the flame sensor should trip and cause the ignitor to shut down. The gas will now be allowed to come out and fire off a blast.I have 2 home videos. on shows the operation and replacement of the coils. The other is of an electric model but shows how to put the dryer together.

Kenmore elite front load dryer made by lg just set up and when started it emits a steady loud buzzing sound ; not a rattle but electrical

The buzzing sound is the motor trying to kick in, the starting capacitor is not giving it the bust it need to take off. Just replace the motor's starting capacitor/power relay. Go to the following site, enter your Dryer's Model # to order it.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dryer working to long to dry clothes

more than likely the belt needs to be replaced and the unit needs to be cleaned out (too much lint built up in the unit)

Maytag neptune dryer won't start

Just a quick question before I look at the control board myself. What are the values/ratings for the capacitor and resistor (ex. farads for cap, ohms for resistor, and volts/amps for both)? Or give me the Vender Part Number so I can look this information up. Thanks!
