Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
What function does the Microswitch (Part# AP4437702) serve. Is this the motor capacitator previous threads talk about? My dryer won't turn (only hums) but drum turns freely. Is the capacitator internal to the motor? Do I have to remove the drum to access the motor?
ANSWER Hello Homeowner. No, the micro-switch EBF61734701 is to see if the belt breaks, it shuts off the dryer. The motor switch is made into the motor assembly 4681EL1008A. You will need to order the motor to repair the problem with the switch. Hope this helps.
