Changed out the rear bearing, front drum support and pads. The first time I put it together the drum was binding and after it ran for a short time it stopped. I took it back apart and put it together this time the drum moves easily by hand but when I try to start it the relay on the front right of the controle panel clicks, the display beeps then says drying but the motor does not turn. Is there a fuse somewhere for the motor I might have blown? The motor spins freely by hand.

Hi. My dryer has been working just fine. Maybe 30 min later, I started another load. The top got really hot and will not start now. I did the basic troubleshooting and internet research. I think its the thermal fuse; I saw a question similar to mine but it didn't mention anything about the top part of the dryer getting extremely hot. Do you have any suggestions? Do you know if this is a common problem with the model dryer? Thank u

Dryer comes on and runs, but blows cold air no heat. Tried different settings, still no heat.

Dryer will start and run only if I hold in the start button. Let go of the start button and it stops immediately. I thought it might be the door switch but it does the same thing if I jumper, (temporarily), across the switch.The back of this machine is NOT easily removable. Your best guess as to possible causes and solutions would be greatly appreciated.

The heat comes on but never gets very hot. When I put it on more dry, it actually got cooler. What could be the cause?
