Start winding is probably bad in the motor. Remove the drum belt and try starting it. If it just hums with no load, replace the motor.

Overheating


sounds like you may have a plugged up vent or a bad motor. disconect vent hose from dryer and run a load of clothes if it works ok it is the vent. If the motor is shutting off and wont start untill it cools off youneed a motor. somewhere around 175.00 total cost would be a moderate estimate depending on which dryer could go to 225.00 depending on area and company that services.

Dryer drum doesn't sart rolling when it is turned on.


It is not using the start winding in the motor. You might be able to remove the end bell and clean the switch?

Gas dyer won't start, have to kick start it.


If your bearing,glides, and idler are all fine then your motor is gone.
You could apply some zoomoil to that motor but you will have to drill some access holes as the manufacturer does not provide any. For $150 bucks a pop I would try a $2 bottle of High temp zoomoil from ace hardware first.Use a 1/6th inch drill bit and do not hit the shaft. The bearing wells are on either side of the motor and you will have to take the drum out to get to the motor. To access the dryer innards open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Get the top out yer way and remove the front. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Send me any folding money you find. LOL You may find enough change in the dryer to buy some oil. Zoomoil is use for HVAC. It is heat resistant and does not disapate. After filling each bearing work the motor by hand till it loosens up. Oil the idler check the slides and the rear bearing for wear.743d531.jpg

Hi! msbjs
Sound like this could be a motor problem. Is there a lot of lint inside the dryer and around the motor?

    You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
