The motor turns on when i start the dryer. The motor sounds like it can't turn, is seized or something, is keeping the motor from moving. the dryer won't turn. What do you think is the problem?
Answer Hello Robert,
I would start at the blower wheel 694089 since if something gets into it, the drum cannot turn. If nothing is in there, go in from the front and make sure the drum rollers and idler wheel will all spin freely. Make sure you can spin the motor by hand and while the unit is apart, bypass the door switch and see if the motor will start. If not, replace the motor 279827.
Hi. I've now had to replace the right-hand roller four times over the last four months. They keep wearing out. Any idea what could be causing them to wear out so quickly. I noticed that the dryer is not perfectly level—could that be causing a problem?
Answer Joshua, Yes the dryer needs to be level in both directions(slightly higher in the front 1/4 inch is OK). You also need to check the roller shafts W10359269 and W10359270 and spacers etc. to make sure they are clean, not damaged and lightly lubed with turbine oil. Also make sure they are straight and level, if they are at an angle down or up, they will cause excess wear on the rollers.
Would any model number will match the pulley I have?
Answer Hello Shannon. 349241T are the correct pulleys for the model number you provided.
Is it worth fixing a gas dryer that is at least 20 years old? I am certain it needs rear drum support rollers replaced.
Answer Hello! The rear drum rollers are part number 349241T. I would suggest viewing the parts cost and factor in replacement and repair history of your current dryer vs the cost of new dryers to determine if you believe it would be best to repair and/or replace your appliance. Thanks.
