Maytag LDE313 Dryer drum won't start

My dryer will start empty if you hold the start button in for a few seconds. It starts slowly, then runs at speed. It won't start with a load of clothes. It will just hum. Motor starter windings maybe?

Sure sounds like a winding problem. Initially when you press start and hear the dragging of the motor sound, this is the start winding going out. Part number is 303358 and your cost is around 120.00 in new or about 60 in good quality used. Good Luck in your decision. If I can help further, I am here...

Waiting to hear from you,

Start button starts dryer and dryer stops when button is released.


Ge dryers have a belt sensing switch inside that won't let the dryer run (just as you describe) when the belt breaks or comes off. My guess is you broke a belt. With door open---hold in button door switch and hit the start switch to get it too run a few seconds. Watch the drum and see if it turns. My guess it will not. Belt is a long skinny band that goes all around the drum outer area and then down around the motor.

The dryer won't start with a load in it. The motor doesn't spin.


Very likely. There could be a restriction in the blower, but these motors do burn out. Hope this helps!

Have to hold knob few seconds for dryer drum to turn


Don't forget to also check the condition of the drum support glides. Worn glides can cause excessive drag (especially more noticable with a full heavy load of clothes than with an empty dryer) which can result in those symptoms.
