Do Kitchen Aid gas dryers have a separate starter on the electric drum motor?
Answer Hello Jeremy,
Most do not have a capacitor but all dryer have to have the motor switch to kick on and off the power for the heating element.
I have replaced the rotary start switch WE4M519 but dryer still will not start. Is there something else that need to be replaced?
With the dryer not starting you will want to test the door switch and the thermal fuse to make sure that they have continuity. If both these test ok then test for power at the motor and if there is power then the motor is faulty.
