GE Dryer will only run when I turn the drum by hand and push the start button, otherwise it just hums when you push the start button
Answer Guy, You most likely have a weak start winding in the motor WE17X22217 and it will need to be replaced. First, you want to check and make sure there is no voltage drop on the L1 leg of the power (red) The voltage at the terminal block needs to remain above 105 VAC when the motor start switch button is pressed.
Dryer makes a buzz noise when start button is pushed and does nothing else. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Tyrone. It sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced. Make sure the drum is not binding. If not, then tape the door switch closed, and press the start button and turn drum by hand and see if it starts going. If so, the motor is bad.
