Question about Dryers
The drum does not turn, the heating element heats up ok. Tried turning by hand but still doesn't start. Bought a new capacitor but still no good.
New cap has 4 connectors old one just had 2, think I wired it ok though.
Provided you only have 2 wires to cap ,it does not matter which wire you put on terminals, as they are both common.
Assuming you got the right value cap, 8uf I think, and it still does not go, check for live and neutral to motor, if supply o/k then you probably have faulty motor.
If no power there check for bad or broken connection.
