Read the diagram how to check the timer contacts and also check the resistors value at the timer.
Unfortunately I can't find the diagram anywhere.

Thank you.

Simon.

Unplug the dryer. Disconnect the wires from the heater. Make sure they are not touching any other wires and/or any metal parts.

Plug the dryer and start it. Measure the voltage between each of the wires and the ground. Post the results.

It might help a lot if you can post the wiring diagram.

Gene.

Hi Gene & Simon, finally was able to get to my daughter's house and check out the voltage at the two wires on the heating element. Between ground and the yellow ones there was no voltage, between ground and the black one there was 120V, both while the dryer was running on the heat cycle.

I also found the wiring diagram and it is attached as pdf file. For the two yellow wires going to the heating element, one comes from the motor and the other comes from the timer.

Hi.

According the diagram the contacts at the motor switch M2 - M3 doesn't close. You need to replace the motor.

The motor Part number: 5303283470

Part number: 5303283470


Thank you.

Simon.

Hi Simon, from the diagram I can see that conclusion. I have two additional questions - 1st, is it feasible to repair these contacts rather than replace the motor, and 2nd, is the replacement motor newer than the 19 year old dryer, i.e., has this motor been used in subsequent model years?

Hi.

You can always try to fix it but the statistics are against you.

And yes - this is most likely very common motor. But you should check it by the model number.

Thank you.

Simon.

Hi, I have another motor and before I begin the replacement, I just wanted to know if there are any special tools or techniques required to complete this job.

Hi.

I don't think you need any special tools to replace the motor.

Good luck.

Simon.

Thanks, Simon. I started to take the motor out. The electric connector is burned on the yellow and black wires and now I wonder if this has been the problem and not the motor itself. Can I get this connector? Can I simply splice it into the existing wiring? What would cause this burning? Could this have led to a serious house fire?

If I do need to replace the motor, how do I remove it from the cage? I don't see an easy way to do this.

I wanted to say that I also see some burning at the connection to the heating element. See attached pic.
