Latest Questions

Hello. While testing my dryer after repairing it, the start switch touched some metal and shorted out. Burning off one of the wires to the start switch. I repaired the wire but the dryer will not start now. I have the correct voltage going to the dryer and the start switch shows continuity when I rotate the knob to the start position. What would keep the dryer from starting? Where does the start switch get its power from? The start switch is burnt but it does show continuity in the start position. Which wire should I check on the start switch for voltage? Thanks.

The dryer will operate if you hold the starter switch in the start mode. Let the switch go and the dryer will stop???
