Start button starts dryer and dryer stops when button is released.


Ge dryers have a belt sensing switch inside that won't let the dryer run (just as you describe) when the belt breaks or comes off. My guess is you broke a belt. With door open---hold in button door switch and hit the start switch to get it too run a few seconds. Watch the drum and see if it turns. My guess it will not. Belt is a long skinny band that goes all around the drum outer area and then down around the motor.

Maytag gas dryer mdg9306awa anits sounds like it wants to start but doesnot


that is the motor,try this,open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other hand while someone else pushes the start button,if by moving the drum the motor does start to run the motor is bad,also you have the neptune style maytag and i don't think there's a belt switch in the model so if the belt broke it could be jammed in the motor,try spinning the drum to help it start if that doesn't work unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two screws that hold the door on and then remove the other two screws on the opposite side,grab the top of the front panel and pull forwards to remove the front panel,you can leave the door on or lift it up and pull out to remove the door,now look to see if the belt broke,if the belt is rapped around the center of the drum then it isn't broke and it will be the motor,that's a good dryer and worth changing the motor on it.

Maytag Neptune gas fired dryer motor does not turn makes buzzing sound


Dryers are turned by a belt, and belts break. You have to take the back off and look. The belt goes around the whole drum. It if broke, it will probably be on the bottom. Make sure the drum turns easily by hand. It could get jammed on something, or the bearing could go bad.

GE model DQSR483EE1WW. This is what I know so far: the switch on the door works so it shouldnt be that safety, it is getting power because the light work and the timer at least buzzes like its working,...


Try looking for a broken belt. (electrical interlock prevents starting with broken belt) Disconnect power, open door, remove two phillips screws which go from top of door opening into dryer top. Swing top up and back. If belt not present going around drum, that's your problem. Remove one screw from side panel to front panel on each side (near top) and lift front panel forward and off the bottom pegs. Set the front panel to the side (leaving door switch wires attached) so you can slip new belt around drum. Reach under drum to put belt WE12M29 around drive pulley and around tensioning pulley. (grooved side of belt touches drum) Put front back on dryer and manually rotate drum a couple revolutions to make sure belt does not come off before closing up top and reconnecting power.

HOTPOINT DRYER VTD00G REPLACED BELT BUT WONT SPIN


Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.
