Re: dryr starts to crank up than just stops and wont turn...
Hi there, this is motor failure. the actual motor windings are in bad condition at this moment. they are separating and this can ultimately start an electrical fire. the automatic shut off prevents the fire form occurring. you will have to remove the motor and tanke it to an electrialc motor shop for a re thread.

first check and see did any clohes fall down in the blower wheel,,from fillter no...check the belt that its not jammed,,check your idler wheel ...always unp[lug unit first.....now we will check motor ,turn unit on if you get a humming for about 10 to 15 seconds than a click,,replace motor
Does the roaring sound occur after the machine warms up? If so, it could be a bad drum bearing. the heat from the dryer causes it to expand in its housing and, since it may been defective, could start "roaring". If so, The dryer drum shaft/bearing assembly will need to be replaced
If however, the roaring is immediate upon start up then u may have a bearing in your dryer motor. The entire motor may have to be replaced.
