Question about GE Profile DPSB619ED Electric Dryer
Hello, I have a GE dryer model number DWLR473ET0WW. I am not sure how old it is or what model name is because it came with the house... Recently it started getting tougher to get it to start and when it did start it ran really noisily. Now when I attempt to start it it just buzzes. After a while it won't even do that, but if you wait a period it will go back to buzzing again. I read of a similar problem on this site and someone suggested that it might be the motor capacitor and to turn the drum to check this. If I open the top and spin the drum while trying to start the dryer it will sometimes start running and run indefinitely. Does this mean that there is no problem with the motor and only the motor capacitor, or could it still be the motor?
Following your description it sound like a capacitor issue. Good luck !
