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.

How can I be sure that the motor is bad? I've done the resistance measurements and they are a little low, (2 ohms rather than 2.3-3.6), but I expected them to be high if the motor had failed. I measured the resistance from P1-3 to P1-4 at 2.1 ohms, which makes sense to me given the wiring diagram. However, the tech sheet states that if the resistance is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, "replace the machine control electronics." Should I replace the motor or the control board? If I have to replace both I'll just buy a new dryer! Thanks, Jim

We have a Kenmore gas dryer and have just changed the thermal fuse but are still having problems. When we try to put the dryer on it hums and doesn't turn if we move the drum it turns on and after a little while it will go off. Could it be the motor if not any suggestions as to what it could be?

All lights work on the dryer and can set cycle, time, etc. When start button is pushed all it does is beep like it's trying to start but dryer doesn't run. Thermal fuse tests okay. I actually unplugged the thermal fuse and it did the same thing. Is it the motor?

I need to replace my Drive Motor (Part number shown on the motor is 3395654, Specification is 1/3 hp 115/60 5.9 Amp Thermal Protected CLB. Your parts help desk told me to use the compatible motor part # AP 3094233. When I look at it, there is a difference on how the wire comes out of the Motor to the mounted terminal. My motor has three wires comming out of the Motor. Two is connected to the Drive Motor Sw terminal that is mounted on the motor. The third wire is connected to a Thermal Fuse (a separate unit from the Drive Motor SW that is mounted under the Drive Motor Sw). The other end of the Thermal Fuse is connected to the Belt cut off Sw. The Thermal Fuse description is a 1.25" x 1", .25" thick black casing with two terminals sticking out. the description on it is 9919 T-O-D 20MCD3GA 028. Your motor has only two wires coming out of the Motor and connected to the terminal on the Drive Motor SW (that is mounted on the Motor).Does your Motor have a Thermal Fuse protecting the Motor circuit? How do I coonect the Thermal Fuse to the new motor if I were to buy the new one?
