My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?

If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

I need to replace the blower motor because when you turn it on it squels very loudly until it warms up. do you have a picture of exactly where it is located so I can see what I am up against?

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to replace the blower motor.

1 Turn off all electrical devices and turn the ignition key to the "Off" position.
2 Remove the battery's negative cable bolt with a wrench. Pull the negative battery cable off of the battery.
3 Locate the passenger side instrument panel insulator panel located under the passenger side of the dash. Remove the two panel retainers from the panel with the retainer pin removal tool. Pull the panel off of the locating stud and away from the dash.
4 Disconnect the panel harness clip by hand and move the harness out of the way of the blower motor. Unplug the blower electrical connector by hand. Remove the cooling hose from the blower motor by hand.
5 Remove the blower motor retaining bolts with a wrench. Lower the blower motor and fan out of their housing.

Thank you for using Fixya!

The electric motor comes on but the engine does

Is the motor turning? Only one fuse and the starter will not turn if it is bad. If the motor is not turning, make sure the belt is not slipping. If it is not slipping, make sure the engine will turn by hand. MAKE SURE KEY IS OFF BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR HANDS IN. If it seems free, you either have a weak battery or the brushes in the starter have worn out. I change at least 20 sets of brushes a year on Club Cars.

Motor was running smooth new cambelt service ect,adjusted timming because could hear pinning on accelaration switched car off for one hour, while looking for an electrical fault on aircon turned aircon...

if you turned the motor backwards and then tried to start belt could have jumped this is a interferance motor which means the valves overlap the pistons ! you could have bent the valves.take it back to the person who did your timing belt
