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...
Answer Hello David,
It sounds like the start switch is stuck or there is some other issue going on. You need to test the start switch, the door switch, and the centrifugal switch. It looks like you have wired it correctly if the instructions from GE are correct. If the motor buzzes without activating the start switch I would first suspect the start switch and then I would suspect the wiring is somehow incorrect or the new motor has an issue.
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 # ?
Answer Hello Martin. The model you provided is not working. Based on the information you provided, the motor is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit.
