Hi.

Check if the belt installed correctly and if the drum turns freely.

Hi.

There is no miracles. Please double check everything you installed. If all checks OK - then, possibly you have bad motor.
The motor Part number: 2200376

Part number: 2200376


Thank you.

Simon.

FYI, the belt diagram in the forums post for this model #SDG3606AWW is wrong. Matag's adivce for this model is that the ribs of the belt go against the drum "NOT Away" as the forums' diagram shows. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/dryer-repair/25860-dryer-belt-diagrams.html Please change the information as I'm sure it has caused others problems similar to mine.When I reversed the belt with the ribs facing the drum the the drum turns with a full load and the dryer works great. thanks for your response
