Yes you can supply power directly to the motor terminals to check if it is good or not. Just make sure to isolate the motor completely from the rest of the dryer. Connect a power cord to terminals 4 and 5 on the motor switch then plug it into a 120 VAC outlet. The motor is definitely bad if it doesn't run and need to be replaced. In the event that the blower wheel cannot be removed and the motor needs replacing, you have to cut the shaft using a reciprocating saw and replace both the motor and the blower wheel.

The motor wiring to the timer needs to be checked for continuity if the motor runs. The timer needs replacing if there are no issues with the motor wiring and the motor itself.

Our Kenmore Front loader Dryer Mod # 110.61402310 i put our clothes in the Dryer and powered it on and then Nothing wont Power on


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released. hope it helps

Motor wouldn't start replaced the motor and it still won't start?


Did you replace the thermal limiter fuse inside the cabinet near the motor? It is likely burned out. Contact the repairclinic.com for the part or Sears.

I have a Whirlpool dryer...Mod nu# WED5800SQ0,


Sounds like your capacitor has stopped functioning. Most dryers have capacitors ranging from 8 to 10 ohms which store energy and give the drum the initial energy boost to start it turning. Unplug the machine and take off the side that contains the motor. in there you will find a small cylindrical object with two connections, thats your capacitor, replace it

Want a wiring diagram for hotpoint dryer, mod#DLB2750BAL.ser#AD 209876H dryer wont run after starting


Make sure the belt is good. These dryers have a belt switch located near the motor. If the belt is broken the dryer will not run.The belt switch could be bad also. Also check the door switch.
Verify 220 volts of power at the terminal where the cord attaches to the dryer.

Mod LEQ9558KQ1 won't heat at all. will tumble and otherwise run. Have multimetered ht element, 3 thermo's, power cord, 220 outlet, thermal fuse, and temperature switch. All check good (believe I checked...


After also checking the main selection switch (for perma press, normal, timed, etc.), which was also good, I finally started checking wiring. Found a wire burned in two. It was the red wire coming off the connections where the power cord connects to the dryer. Cut it, spliced it, put it all back together and it's now working as it should.

MOD: REX4635EW2 SER: MJ0922226 Type: D433-ELE-2406028-FM54 Won't turn on just buzzes when hit the start button. Have already checked plug in and braker box?


Remove the back panel from the control panel to access the start switch. If there are 4 wires on the start switch,replace the start switch.
