The dryer doesn't stay on when I release the start button. When I engage the start button I hear the engine start but it cuts off as soon as I release the button. Any suggestions.... Thanks, Mike

I replaced the motor in my old dryer a couple years ago with this kit. It didn't quite fit properly with the blower assembly - the fan blades would hit the front wall and grind. I shifted the motor back a bit to give it more clearance but that meant the motor strap (part 203) didn't really sit on the motor quite right. It worked fine for a few weeks after that, but I recall it being kind of loud. Eventually it started being really loud and not spinning well. I stopped using the dryer then as it was an extra anyway. Well now I have more tenants in my house (this is a coin op in a 3 famliy house) so I'm trying to fix it again. I took it apart today and as I expected it had slipped the motor strap and wasn't in right. To resolve the problems I replaced the screws attaching the motor strap to the blower housing with longer ones and put some washers in between to space it out further. The fan spins nice and freely now, and the motor strap is secured properly to the motor now. My problem is now when I turn it on it's vibrating pretty badly and is quite loud. Did I somehow damage the motor from it running without the motor strap on right? Everything seems aligned and secured properly. The extra space I added doesn't seem like it could be causing a problem - I bent the mounting bracket on the other side just a bit to account for it anyway. Could something be out of balance in the motor? Could I have gotten something in the wiring order wrong to cause a problem like this? It otherwise will work except for the loud vibrating - drum spins, air moves, clothes get warm, etc. But if you watch the motor by itself with the drum out you can see it shaking pretty badly. Do I need to replace this motor again?

Just installed a new dryer motor p#AP4295548 and now it sounds like the motor buzzes when the cycle/timer switch is turned on and will not start. It is wired according to the schematic that came with the motor #5 blue, #4 yellow, #3 none, #6 brown, #1 black, and #2 purple ANY help with a cause or different wiring for this issue would be much appreciated....THANKS....Dave...

My dryer has gotten louder lately. Not squeaking, just louder. I have replaced the sliders and bearings. Is it a safe assumption that the only thing left that could be causing the dryer to be louder is the motor itself? If I take the drum out and let the motor spin without load, it is not loud.

The motor on my GE Dryer hums but doesn't turn. A friend told me it was a problem with the starter capacitor. Is this the problem? If so, what is the part # ?

My GE dryer runs but doesn’t always get hot. After running for a while the motor will not always restart. I checked the heat sensors with a multi meter and they are OK, and the igniter looks good. I am thinking the motor needs to be replaced because it will not always restart after running and I am assuming it will not flow enough air to allow the burner to ignite. What do you recommend?

My motor went out on my dryer so I replaced it with this motor kit. Since replacing it, the motor runs much louder. The sound is NOT squeaking or rubbing. It is as if the volume compared to the old motor was turned up.

My GE dryer is very noisy. I took the drum out and ran the motor and it seems too noisy but spinning the motor manually, it feels that the bearings are smooth. Could it be that it is running on only 1/2 voltage? I checked voltage to the motor and it is getting 120 volts on both power wires. Do I need a motor or is there something I am missing?
