Dryer runs for a while lets say 5 min, then if you stop it and try to restart all it does is buzz. I also get an odor like something is hot. If I let it cool down I can restart.
Answer Hello Larry, You have a bad motor. If it gets hot and won't start, and when it cools down, will start as you have described, you will need to replace the motor. Hope this helps.

I would like to replace the motor. What is the difference between drive motor 60HZ and drive motor? How do I know which my dryer needs? Thank you.
Answer Hello SC! Unfortunately, we do not have the specs to verify the difference. However, there is a series change within the model that affects the motor. We'll need the serial number to your dryer to verify the correct replacement motor. Please obtain this information and repost for further assistance. Thanks.
Can you tell me the ohms parameters on motor 6 3709530 ? It doesn't show them on my wiring schematic in dryer. Thank you
Answer Hello Vulcan28,
This is not information shared by the manufacturer. I have researched it and the actual resistance is not mentioned anywhere. The fact is, if it is not a three phase motor, the windings should give a very low resistance without reading open, (they will normally read just a bit higher than the resistance of you meter leads when touched together). They should however, read open to ground.
This is a Maytag dryer. Over the last several months or so it is getting harder to start. It seems to start better when it has not run for a while. When you pull out the timer handle / start switch it either starts right up or does nothing. I replaced the timer / switch about 6 months ago as it was dong the same thing. With the new switch it seemed to start fine until several months ago. Is this timer switch a bad one or should i look for another faulty part. How can they be checked before buying?
Answer Lee, Wouldn't expect the replacement timer to be the issue, especially if it didn't solve the original issue. You may want to start by testing the door switch circuit and catch to make sure the door is closed and latched. With the switch plunger pressed in you'll want to test for a "closed" circuit across terminals "com" and NC check the switch several times. At the timer check for a "closed" circuit between the terminals where the yellow and purple wires attach to the timer(remove the wires first).If all checks are OK, then suspect the motor 33002795 has an intermittent issue and will need to be replaced.
