Question about Amana ALG443RAW Gas Dryer
I have recently replaced the belt on my 18 month old hotpoint VTD00G tumble dryer. For those are having difficulties doing this; I started by taking off the front panel and the side panel. I first fed the belt over the drum, and then with a flat head screw driver, levered the belt under the motor shaft. Make sure that the belt is the right way up (ribs in contact the shaft). When I plugged my dryer it in all it does is make a buzzing sound. I took off the rear panel and manually spun the impeller, the impeller rotates my dryers drum freely, so no problem there. Is it more likely that my motor is damaged or is more likely that the fault is due to a fault in the dryer start relay switch?
Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.
