Re: Spins up, then stops.
Sounds like the problem could be in the tachometer. This is located on the shaft of the motor at the back and has wires going from it to the main wiring plug for the motor. The tachometer cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced.

if you can still here the motor running it could be the belt slipping,, try running the dryer with a very light load in it ,,if it works ok,,its the belt slipping and it cant turn a full load anymore,,change the drive belt!
if no motor sounds its the programer,,,pricy part!!!
(1) Assure the brush shut off lever on the hood is not set to the off position.
(2) Is there still a square pin standing up from the one drive brush? It should be 1/4 square, and about two inches tall. That pin is the drive from the transmission to the brushes.
There are no belts. The transmission is air and gear drive mechanism.
Hi this is caused by you timing belt being to tight or off a tooth. The tech is trying to get out of pulling it back apart. Go back there and be stern with them it is there fault. Reseting your computers will do nothing on you car due to it not having computer with adaptive learning system. Tell him that and see what he says. I cant stand techs that lie.
there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?
