I HAVE A GE DRYER THE MOTOR SHUTS OFF WHEN YOU RELEASE THE START BUTTON AND THE DRUNM WONT ROTATE


there's a broken belt switch connected to the belt idler pulley,(when this belt breaks the switch opens) located down by the motor and it kills the power to the dryer when the belt breaks so the heating element cant get the clothes too hot to burn the clothes when the drum cannot rotate properly

GE dryer model DDE8200GALAD was working fine. After removing a load and trying to dry another, after inserting the load and shutting the door when you turn the timer to start it before pushing the start...


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

The dryer just makes a humming noise when I turn it on, but won't turn all the way on


When you say it won't turn all the way on, does that mean the drum isn't rotating?

If yes, the belt from the motor that goes around the drum might have broken and you can hear the hum of the motor spinning but no longer rotating the drum.

The other thing I can think of is that the motor itself has failed, possibly seized, and you can hear the motor trying to spin but it cannot. With the dryer unplugged and empty of clothes, try to rotate the drum. If it rotates extreamly easily, then the belt has broken. If you cannot rotate it at all by hand, then chances are the motor is seized. It should rotate with moderate effort.
