Check to make sure the motor is actually running and not stuck, if the motor is stuck and no clothing is around the blower them check the motor to see if it is free, if it is and you turn the dryer on it locks up go get another motor the bearings are worn so that it locks up on start or after running a short time

I have i kitchen aid gas dryer,when i press the start button it makes noise for about 3-4 second s then it stops and it won't start


That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced.
Now if you press the start button and the machine starts to hum and continues to hum its possible that something has gotten caught in the blower wheel and binding the motor up. Depending on the make and model the location and access to it vaaries.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Dryer requires start button to be depress constantly for dryer to operate


If I am not mistaken, once the timer is set and the button pushed, the motor should run and there is probably a contact in the cintrifugal switch of the motor to seal in the run circuit. On a working dryer, if you push the start button for a split second, and let go the dryer will stop. This is because the motor has not reached proper rpm and the switch is not made yet. If the switch hangs up or the switch goes bad the same symptom will occur.

Dryer won't stay on


The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

When the push start button is pushed in the dryer starts and every thing is ok until you release the button then all stops. I have replaced the bank of push button and just relaced the timer controls.


Good day,
Seems you've covered the timer and push to start switch.
If so then....
The principle the system runs on is, if the timer is turned on, 2 wires come out of it to run the the motor.
The first goes to the push to start switch and when pressed it sends power directly to the motor.
The second wire goes to the motor, but thru a centrifugal switch that must be up to speed before it sends power to the motor.
That is why it continues to run even when you release the start button.
The centrifugal switch is a part of the motor.
Either the centrifugal switch failed, or the power wire to it is disconnected or broken.

How do u wire a three phase squirrel cage motor with a motor starter with a remote start/stop/inch station and warning indicator light ?


You would first run a conductor fromL1 to L1 on the motor start then run a second conductor from L2 to L2 on the moter starter, then run a third conductor from L3 to L3 on the moter starter. next run L1 and L2 to a step down transformer so you can reduce your working voltage to 120vac, then run a conductor on one of the outputs from the step down transformer to one side of the normally closed contacts on the STOP push button, from the other side of the stop button run a wire to one side of the start button, on the other side of the start push button run a wire to one side of the magnetic motor starter coil, the other side of the coil run a wire to the other empty terminal on the transformer, this will be the neutral wire. next you need to run a wire from the normally open contactor on the magnetic moter starter to one side of your push button start switch, then run one wire from the other side of the start push button switch to the other side of the normally open contacts on the magnetic moter starter, this is your start switch latch that will keep the motor running when the start push button is released.I'm not sure how you need the warning indicator light wired up, so please reply and let me know when it needs to come on and go off

Hi my dryer buttons seem all good but as soon as i start the spin it spins for a second then stops then it beeps repeatedly


Whats brand dryer is it? Older style or newer style. Is it the regular machanical timer style dryer or the new computer led light style dryer? If it the regular machanical timer style type, then you saying when you push the start button it starts but once you let go of the "push to start" button it stops. Is this right? In that case is could be a bad motor. The centrifigal switch in the motor is probably bad and isnt holding to the "run winding" in the motor internally.

Motor stops


Could be the run winding on the motor...indicating a bad motor. When you press the button, the start winding starts the motor, then the run winding kicks in to run the motor and the start winding turns off (it's no longer needed). You should replace the motor, that would be my first thought.
