Dryer makes a buzz sound when you try to start it. When it does start, the motor sounds bad.
Answer Hello Lloyd. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor 279811 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
The dryer belt seems to be slipping. It thumps a lot and dries only partially. Do I need a new belt?
Answer Hello Denise. It sounds like the belt, rollers, and idler pulley are bad and will need to be replaced. Be sure and clean out the blower wheel good as well. Hope this helps.
If the belt breaks & the dryer won't work, will this switch need to be replaced so the dryer will work again?
Answer Hello Scot. No, you will need to replace the belt and make sure the idler is pushing the switch 279782 with the belt on to close the circuit. Hope this helps.
