There should be a schematic on the machine, also the motor terminal block should have what wire goes where on this block,you've accidentally bypassed the timer circuit

make sure push start switch is not stuck pushed in.Also sounds like the switch mounted on the motor could be stuck, which means new motor. Does motor start and stop with timer being moved to the off position ?.If so then not the motor.

Hotpoint dryer TDC60 won't start


You can copy and paste it to the dryer section as a new question.
In general, you would need to go down the list of possible causes such as the door switch, the thermal fuses, the timer, and so on. I use a VOM meter and the wiring diagram on the back of the machine to check components.

1) O.k if the thermostat 2) Thermofuse is o.k is good resultant BUT please 3) Test the door switch for open or defective , if the remain open the motor will NOT START. see the diagram. 4) After changing the switch if the problem remain the same the motor is faulty( centrifugal swithc, etc) need repair or replace. 5) Test the push button start for diryt or open, test the wires for loose, broke, or burn wires too.

Dryer won't stay on when let go of start button.


One of two things is wrong. Either the start switch has gone bad or the start winding in the motor is failing to switch over to the run winding. You'll need to get a multimeter and before starting unplug the dryer. Once thats done, get behind it, remove the back cover to the control panal and disconnect the two wires that are connected to the start button. With your meter set for checking continuity, place a meter lead on start button pins where the wires were connected, one lead on each side.With leads in place have someone press the start button, if continuity shows when pressed and stops when its not, the button is good and the motor is bad. Personally, I think the motor winding has burnt, and the motor should be replace, but I also think that the start button should be changed as well because its in direct series with the motor, and could have taken damage that may not show up until further down the road, plus its an inexpensive part.

The drum on our Neptune Dryer has stopped turning. It still heats up, but the drum just won't turn.


If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
Good luck!

Dryer will not start


Faulty Drive Motor

If the motor will not start, it is possible it is defective. The wiring of the motor is different for each brand and you will need to refer to the wiring diagram of your dryer for the specific terminal locations. You will need to use a volt/ohm meter to check for resistance between the run winding and common (may be referred to a neutral). If there is no resistance, the motor is open and will need to be replaced.

The motor bearings can also go bad. A dryer with a motor in this condition can sometimes be started by hand and it will run. However when the motor gets hot the bearings begin to seize and the motor will stop. In this condition you must also replace the motor.
