what does the belt switch do? the gas dryer i have won't start. turn start switch and get buzz sound. so i thought there was something wrong with the starter. can you help me with any ideas?
Answer Robert, The belt switch completes the circuit to the dryer ddrive motor, if the belt breaks or the switch is inoperative, the dryer wont start. Since you have the "buzz" noise, you've got power to the motor. Where does the noise originate from ? If it's from the motor area, you probably have a worn out motor bearing, or a weak start winding, and will need a new motor WE17X10002 if theres not a small article stuck in the blower wheel/housing assembly. Good Luck and Thanks
