Dryer stops running shortly into cycle. When button is pushed to restart, dryer groans. Holding button may get the unit going again - but it makes noise running and stops again soon. Bad motor? Bad...

Sounds like start winding switch. I would replace whole motor assembly. Try on ebay for a used one that looks newer. Used motors will save you some serious money.

Dryer wont turn on

No reset button. If you hear a groaning noise when it tries to start, the motor has failed and you need a new motor or dryer.

Dryer Problem

i dont think any thing is wrong with it if it stops for a few secs then starts spinning the other way its supposed to now if it stops and doesnt reverse at all you have a promblem it dont have brakes like a car so in order to stop to reverse the drum it lowers voltage to the motor and thats the groaning your hearing it has to stop completly to reverse or it would trash the drive motor so its programed with enough deley to make sure the motor has stopped the reversing action is supposed to give you less wrinkles
