Question about GE Dryers
When I turn my dryer on it automatically turns off after I let go of the "start" knob. It sounds as if the motor is not catching but I am not sure. 2 days ago our laundry sink overflowed onto the floor I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. The water drained to our sump pump so nothing was immersed in water. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?
Don't do GE products if you have a push to start then I would suspect the centrifugal switch in the motor this is what keeps a closed electrical loop for the motor

is this the even heat model? if it is you need a new control board on the back of the timer area and might as well buy a couple relays the black ones with 4 wires in them. one is for the pts and the other is a heater relay both are the same part

What I did was unplug it for 1 min., plug it back in. Push the "off" button once, then push the off button again and hold it for 10 seconds. This is supposed to reset the computer. It worked for me.

it could be the motor capacitor. to check, turn on and carefully give the drum a push in the direction of rotation. if the drum picks up speed and goea ok, then the motor capacitor is faulty. cheap part
