    my dryer is not working

  • SARITL Apr 20, 2009

    HELLO.
    Question
    THE WASHING MACHINE MOTOR WILL NOT SPIN THE TUB OR AGITATE IT WHEN THE CYCLE IS ON. YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR TRYING TO MOVE THE TUB BUT IT SORT OF HUMS THEN WITHIN A FEW SECONDS THERE IS A CLICK (LIKE A OVERHEAT SWITCH) AFTER A FEW MINUTES YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN. IF I PUSH/TURN A LITTLE THE MOTOR THEN IT'S RUNS FINE AND EVERYTHING OPERATES UNTIL IT STOPS ITS CYCLE. I CAN MOVE THE PULLEY MANUALLY AND RETRY SEVERAL TIMES IT MAY START FINE.... DOES THE CAPACITOR IN THE SYSTEM GIVE IT THE BOOST FOR THE START UP THEN RUN. OR IS THERE ANY OTHER STARTING "THING" THAT GIVES THE MOTOR A BOOST... DO I HAVE A CAPACITOR PROBLEM OR A MOTOR PROBLEM. NOTE WHEN THE MOTOR GETS GOING EVERY THINGS SEEMS TO WORK OK... THIS IS A STANDARD LANDRY-CENTER UNIT(WASHER & DRYER COMBO) NO ELECTRONIC CIRICIT-BORD OR ELECTRONICS BOARDS IN IT MADE BY FRIGIDAIRE
    I JUST GOT A CAPACITOR AND REPLACE THE OLD OE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT BLOW-OFF AND STILL I GET THIS "HAMMING" NOICE AND THE MOTOR DON'T START TILL I GIVE IT A PUSH, THEN IT'S FINE TILL IT END IT'S CYCLE.
    HELP .........PLEASE
    THANK YOU

Good day.

Have you checked on the AC line of your washing machine?
Maybe the starting capacitor has blown off or the fuse from the ac line to the micro computer is busted. Please check
