Dryer will not start at all. Start relay clicks and shows 120v. White wire to motor reads 120v at appropriate points in cycle. Door switch and all fuses show continuity. After removing drum and blocking up pulley switch, motor did come on ONCE when cycling switch, and at the end of cycle at that, but could not get motor to come on again after that. The motor sounded smooth when it did come on, and shows no signs of burning or bearing problems, etc. Could the problem be with the timer switch (although it seems to be sending power to the motor)? Or if power is getting to the motor, is the problem the motor? If it ran smoothly once, you would think that is not the problem. Or could it be the electronic control board? I am stumped and would appreciate any advice you could give to further check those components. Thanks, Dave

I need the Pully on the end of the motor for the dryer belt. Do they sell the pully?? The only thing I can find is purchasing the entire motor assemble for a five dollar part.

Does motor PN 279787 come with the drive pulley on it or do I have to pull from the old motor and install on the new? If I have to pull and reinstall, will I break it or is it just better to order a pulley also? Thanks

Start Button pushed down for seconds to get motor started. Dry's for 10 mins. Shuts off. No longer starts even when Start button is depressed (otherwise I smell a burning smell coming from panel). After 1 hr, it will turn on but repeat the process. It didn't used to start before so I originally cleaned out all the lint on the motor, blower wheel, etc. Motor can now be heard when dryer is on. Not quiet as before. Is it really the motor starting to go out? Thanks

BASEMENT FLOODED. DRYER HAD ABOUT 3 INCHES OF WATER IN THE BOTTOM. NOW CONTROL PANEL WORKS AND ONLY A CLICK HAPPENS WHEN TRYING TO START DRYER. WOULD THE MOTOR MOST LIKELY BE THE FAILED PART SINCE IT WAS IN THE WATER?

The dryer drum quit turning. The controls light up, and youcan hear a click when you try and ingage the dryer. The windings read 1.7ohms across both main and starter windings. The controls have been acting up, but there is no ohm reading between P1-3 and P1-4 on the master control board. Thinking motor, but there is no sound hum or anything comming from motor. It just quit.
