The heating compenent works, but drum won't spin

A few days ago, the dryer stopped working. When we press start on the dryer, the heating compenent heats up, but the drum just won't spin. We replaced the fuse for the motor on the drum and it worked for one cycle. When we tried to run another load of clothes through the dryer, it reverted to the heating component turning on, but the drum wouldnt spin... again... please help, thankyou

Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.

Electrical on but dryer does not start


Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.

The flame sensor is fine because it is powering up the ignitor. The dryer does heat a little. It can be only one thing: The solenoids are aged and weak. They work at first then the heat up and quit.
