Question about GE Dryers
GE dryer DDG7280PALHT replacing GE motor 5KH47DT61T with WE17x32 cant get wiring on centrifugal switch correct. The new motor wont run.
SOURCE: GE dryer DDE5300 runs only
Broken belt. The safety switch will not allow the motor to stay running if the belt is broken. Open the door and look up at the 12 oclock position and their will either be 2 or 4 screws holding down the top. These must be removed and then you can get the top to come up(or off on newer models). Once you have the top up you can get to the screws which hold the front on (2). Then you simply remove the front and get it out of your way. On some these dryers there is a friendly rear hatch to help you replace the idler.

The dryer has a diagram on the machine. The centrifugal switch is on the end of the motor and they close when the motor is running. This contact is in the element circuit.

It will almost certainly be the capacitor. Instead of buying the $60 part thru parts suppliers, I went to a local engine repair shop and bought one for $8.50 and installed it. It worked fine.
You can order the part from Beidlers motor repair, just as I did. Their number is (304) 263-9995
