Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I turned the knob to turn the dryer on and it "hummed" but did not start. I turned it again and it "hummed" and then immediately stopped like it had an overload protection. It is now completely dead. The breaker did not trip. Is there a reset switch or a fuse that can be replaced? Thanks, Justin

Sounds like the start windings are out of the motor. You may be able to reach in and turn the drum to get it started. 50/50 chance.
