Crosley CDE 6000W won't start Please help
« on: January 05, 2013, 11:57:25 PM »

My dryer just stopped running and would not start back. I have checked all the obvious thing likes lid switch, fuses, overloads, etc. to no avail. I am getting 240v to rear of dryer. I also installed a new timer.  Paid a local service man $55 to check it and he couldn't find the problem either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any voltage at the motor?

If you have voltage to the motor, but the motor does not run then replace the motor.

If you do not have voltage to the motor then I would trace it back with a multimeter to see why not.

Here is the wiring diagram for your dryer.

Also check the wires going to the door switch. Seems to me I had one a while back like this model were the wires to the door switch come unclipped from the side of the cabinet and one of them rubbed on the dryer drum until the wire broke.

Ok, Thank you so much for the help. Would you happen to know the color of the two wires that I should have 120 volts on going into the motor?

Got it to run. It was the little brown overload motor protection that has two wires going to it. Would you happen to have one or know where I could get one? I looked on ebay and really couldn't find one. The tag says 058.  :thanks:

Good job finding the problem.  O0

That overload should automatically reset one's it's been tripped.
It will trip if the motor got to hot or if the motor is drawing to many amps.

You can't purchase the motor overload as a separate part. Even if you could chances are there is something not right with the motor that caused it to fail anyway.

A new motor will come with a new overload installed on the motor. Your model dryer uses motor part # W1041099

How old is the dryer?
