If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

your dryer vent could possibly be stopped up also you will need to have the thermistor and t-stat changed but make sure the dryer vent that goes out is not clogged. the more hot air out the better the dryer works.

It's either the timer switch or the motor.

Beyond checking for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker (find the dryer circuit breaker and turn it off, then back on) I would suggest having a qualified Service Technician look at your dryer. Your dryer operates on 240VAC. One leg of power (L-1, 120VAC) operates the motor and timer. The second leg (L-2, 120VAC) ends up at one side of your heating element while L-1 is on the other side. L-2 goes from your power cord to the juction block, to the motor centrifugal switch and finally to one connection of the heater. L-1 goes from your power cord to the junction block, then through the operationg thermostat and the high limit thermoastat, then possibly a thermal fuse and finally to the other connection on the heating element. L-1 and L-2 together supply 240VAC. No heat at all can be a fault with ANY of the components mentioned.

Rough handling may have the drum belt to get binded. Try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns free or is locked. This may align the belt to the motor or may just take off the belt altogether from the motor. You will have to get inside access to see whats up. Once inside realign the belt to the motor and pulley assembly. Then CHECK ALSO that no wire connections inside came apart during moving. Good luck

you could have a defective start switch on the dryer motor, bad motor bearing making motor drag and draw excessive current or a heater element shorted to the dryer case

Open the door. Remove the screws inside the top of the door frame to raise the lid.

Hotpoint... | Answered on Jun 14, 2009

When you hold the start switch you are energizing the start winding of the motor. If the motor does not take off and run, the most likely cause is the centrifugal switch inside the dryer's motor is not being switched. It is switched by a spring loaded collar on the motor shaft which moves when the motor starts to run, and again back when it stops. Often times this collar begins to stick on older dryers. Sometimes you can free it up by cleaning the dryer motor with an air compressor and hitting the collar with some spray lube. This only works some times. The only sure fix is to replace the motor, which unfortunately is rather expensive and a fair amount of work. Please don't bother rating this, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my score.
