My dryer will not run unless I hold the start button.
Answer Hello Peter. You will need to order and replace the motor WE17X10010 on the dryer.
When I hit start the drum just bumps and will not turn, I replaced the guide on the front door and 4 of the guide bushings I guess that is what you call them. The drum turns some what free but a little force is needed. Do I need a new motor?
You will want to check the rear drum bearing to make sure that there is no damage to the bearing as this could cause the drum to not spin properly. If this checks ok then most likely the motor is faulty and would need to be replaced.
It looks that we need a motor brush. that is all. Can I buy one through you?
Answer Hello Tom. Sorry, they do not sell brushes for the motors. Most of these motors do not even have brushes in them. You will need to replace the motor WE17X10010 on the unit.
Please inform is the p/n WE17X10010 is a new model for the old Dryer motor 5KH26GJ116T 572D676G003
