If you can hear the motor running, and the drum not turning, it could be the belt. I would check the wall outlet to make sure that you are getting 220 volts, not just 110 volts. After this, the parts are possibilities get more complex and more expense, i.e. circuit board, timer, or motor, and it would probably pay to get a repairman in rather than just trying to change parts.

I would believe that you would be looking at diagram location 630 a.k.a. the motor. Many people don't know it but there start switch on the panel has only one function and that is to energize the start switch on the motor.

The only drawback to this is often times manufacturers will not, for some reason or another, sell you the switch but sell you the whole motor instead.

A problem like this could either be in that start switch in the panel making poor contact, or the start switch mounted on the motor (Recently, I was actually able to take one off where it mounts on thedryer motor and open it up in halves and file burned points inside), orwith the centrifugal device in the motor itself. (As cheap and simpleas these plastic start switches on the motor appear, due to perhapsliability or something, often you can not buy that start switch andhave to buy the entire motor with it on it.)

Or your problem may conceivably have a root cause where the dryer drumis in somewhat of a bind due to a drag on it caused by something likegummed up rear roller bearings (not all dryers have these rollers, butsome do), or idler pulley bearing (that is what puts tension on thebelt ). You'd have to open up a dryer access panel (some dryers haveone small panel in rear to get at hooking up the belt, some have alower front panel that pops off), carefully stare at how the belt isfacing and wound around your shaft and idler pulley, or take a pictureor draw a picture, and then after you pull the idler pulley closer tothe motor shaft and slip off the belt, then try to freewheel spin themotor shaft, the idler pulley, and the drum, and see how it feels toyou. If anything feels like it's binding that's probably your culprit.

Have ptdn600emwt dryer when pressing start button makes noise but does not run


I have found that the switch activated by the door close or turns on the interior light when open on is likely the problem. You may notice that if the door is open and you push the start button, it will buzz. So if the door is closed and you get this buzz when pushing the start button, there is a problem with the door switch. The start button "thinks" the door is open, and therefore not start. The defective door switch needs to be replaced. At least highly likely.

I have Hotpoint Ultimate Extra WD72 washer dryer and the start button has stopped working any idea if this is an expensive problem ??


When you close the front washer door, it closes a switch. This switch prevents the washer from operating when the door is open. Your problem is when you close the door, the switch does not go into the closed position. Now when you press the start button, nothing happens. It acts as if the door is in the open position, even though the door is closed. The door switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one. Some start buttons only momentarily close and use a relay type of switch to keep power going to the washer. If you have this type of start button, then the relay/switch could be defective. This is a separate part, it is not the start button switch. It is also possible that the start button switch is defective. So up to three parts need to be checked. None of these are expensive repairs.

My GE spacemaker washer is blinking and will not work


I have a he gtup270emww washer used very little. The washer was overloaded and quit working full of heavy wet clothes and water. The washer agitator does not operate. The water does not drain.

The light blinks. I have un plugged the washer to reset the motor and lifted and closed the lid 7 times. I drained the water by hand.

When I try to operate the washer, it adds water for 30 seconds, the water shots off and the green light blinks.

What is the fix?

Check the door switch. Turn on dryer as you push in on switch where the door catch is and see if it starts . when closed the pin may not be pushing it in.

Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

GE spacemaker dryer won't start


Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.
