Got the front cover off, checked everything out. The heating elements work, the blower wheel spins, the drum turns, no funny noises. Assuming the exhaust vent is clear (I'll check it tonight after work) what would cause it to take almost 2 hours to dry a load of laundry?

Most likely there is a restricted air flow. Disconnect the vent hose on the back of the dryer and run a load as you usually do.

Gene, I replace the motor and I still have the same symptoms.

It won't spin on it's own, but will spin if you hold down the door switch and give it a hand. Could it be the belt?

Is there anything electronic that would determine the power going to the motor? I don't hear anything unusual. I might hear a click when it starts the blower. No heat until I manually help it along.

I can order a new belt for $25 with shipping. Should I remove the top and see if the belt is moving at all first.

Could it be a spring in the two white pulley's or tension?

What do you think?

Gene, it could be the capacity couldn't it.

Hi Bryan,

How freely the drum moves when you turn it manually?

If you can feel any restrictions then check how the belt was installed and the conditions of the idler pulley.

If it moves freely, measure the current drawn by the drive motor while it's trying to start. It suppose to be no more than 3 amps. If it's more than that with the new motor, very likely the power board causing the problem.

Post the results.

Gene.

The drum doesn't spin freely. I think the belt is alright.

I just ordered a new Belt, Spring and Capacitor. It's $58 delivered. Not bad.

I'm going to take it apart one more time and replace those items. I'm thinking it's the capacitor or spring. I don't recall seeing a spring on the two pulley's so I'll take a closer look.

If that doesn't work.. I'll call someone. It should be easy to take apart and put together this time. I'll let you know.

It's a $1000 dryer so new Motor, Belt and parts is worth it. I have old motor as backup. It's also champagne colored so matching will be difficult :-))

GENE!

I still haven't fixed my Dryer. Good thing I have another one in the guest house.

I replaced the motor, capacitor and belt. Belt just because.

It won't run unless I manually help it at first.

I took out the drum and ran it without anything. The motor doesn't turn unless I use a stick and just gently push the blade to help it. Then it turns.

You mentioned the Board. Could anything else cause this? The heater comes on and everything works once it gets a little help.

????

I would like you to measure the current drawn by the motor and post the result.
