Question Dryer lights on, but motor won't start
Model Number: D850VWX291   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

Hi, My old dryer was working fine. Didn't use it for about 2-3 month, now, it is not working!

the light still goes on, and is controled by the door switch. The dryer itself won't start. No buzzing sound. If I put dryer on drying time, the timer will start clicking.

I manually turn the dryer drum, it does turn, both directions, although quite heavy (I tried to turn other working dryers, they were heavy to turn by hands as well. )

What could have gone wrong?

-------solved... I forgot .. there was another "start" button to push...

Thanks!
