SOURCE: Dryer drum will not turn

The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

SOURCE: My dryer drum sparks when i push on it

You have loose or shorted wiring in the dryer. Unplug the dryer.Raise the top lid. Remove the screws on the top right and left inside the dryer to remove the front panel. Disconnect the door switch wires and set the panel aside. Reach in under the drum and remove the drive belt from the motor and pulley. Remove the drum. Inspect the wiring visible inside. Remove the rear panel from the dryer and inspect all wiring and thermostats and fuse relays.Remove the terminal cover where the cord connects and inspect all wiring there for broke or loose. Open the control panel and inspect all wires there for broken or loose. Repair any wiring found defective and replace any parts found defective.

Hello
You need to do some basic testing for me so we can at least get a preliminary idea of the problem here, open the dryer door and spin the drum, does it spin fairly easily? if it doesn't there is a problem that must be addressed first, then I want you to hold the dryer door switch in and spin the dryer drum while a helper pushes the start switch in, if the dryer drum spins and stays running the motor start capacitor or switch on the motor may be defective, if it doesn't start then the dryer motor may be defective, let me know what you find out asap.

Model DPSB620GC1WW, SET SETTINGS, PUSH START AND DOES NOTHING BUT CLICK


Reach inside and move the "drum" by hand. then close the door and try again. I have seen the exhaust fan so full of lint that the motor can't turn. If you are not comfortable taking the back off then you will need to hire it done

My LG Tromm dryer makes 3 clicking sounds when I push the start button. Everything lights up as if it is going to work, but when "start" is pushed, I just hear the 3 clicks and then nothing happens


If the drum doesn't turn, check the centrifugal switch on the motor shaft. Check if the belt hasn't broken or if it's off the motor shaft.

GE dryer turns on but doesn't spin


Probably nothing but a broken belt. Ge dryers can be tricky. Most of them cannot be accessed from the rear anymore. Lots of videos on youtube now that show how to replace a dryer belt on a GE dryer.

Most likely the motor. If you have a second set of hands, you can try and hand start it. Open the door, hold in the door switch (or tape it, if you don't have anyone to help), press the start button, and then grab one of the drum fins, and spin the drum counterclockwise and see if it takes off.

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.
