Awsum information there regus and thank you .. Unfortunatly it came a bit too late.I pulled the motor out last night ... And is now sitting on the floor .

I had a friend over looking at it an like a moron he shifted a cpl of the bushings in the motor ..

Out em back in place but i dont trust it now .. So ... I guess a new motor will be going in ..

I had tested all the other parts you had mentioned so i am down too as you said  the Relay or the centrifugal switch .. I guess ill find out after the new motor goes in today .. If that dont work ill be replacing the entire electronic control board . There cant be anything else wrong with it at that point ..

Thanx for trying tho ...

No ... No broken wires ..  All of them even contuniuty from the L1 relay down to the heater coil ..  couldnt check for continuity on the cenrtrifugal side .

As i said earlier i did cross the red and black wire on the replay with a screwdriver. and the heater coil glowed .. :-)

This made me think the replay was bad . But i could hear the replay click on and off when turning on the dryer normally So that brought me back to the centrifugal switch..  Ugggg my brain is spining again allready !

The Relay could "click" and still be bad (bad contacts)

Very correct about the relay switch .. ( dont know whay i kept hitting the P and spelling replay earlier )

searched all over town today to find a motor .. Almost found one used for 30 $ But it was a inch to long Urrrrg!

On the way home i seen a appliance and followed him .. He ended up living the next street over. Asked if he had one ... and he did in the back of his truck But again too long .. He he was nice enough to come over and take a peak ..

After explaining everything i had done and tested .. He tends to agree its the electronic control board .. But the good news is he thought his partner had just picked up the same model washer and dryer  ( washer was toast ) So he is going to give a call tomarrow on the motor . And also maybe a electronic control board. SO that would cover all my bases .. 3o to 40 for a motor and 100 for a used board sounds pretty good .. ill let ya all know how it turns out ..

Oh and the reason im going nuts over the motor is cuz my 15 year old damged it while removing it .. Why cant they keep there fingers out of things ! ??

OK OK  i know this is getting long ....

I managed to fix the damage to the motor my kid caused .. Put it back in .. ( temp not fullly back in ) just the wires  with the belt safty by passed and a and the thermator bypassed and the thermitor fuse bypassed ..

Turned it on and the motor is spinning .. check the relay at the electronic control board  read lead and black lead and was getting 240   checked each wire individually  one was getting 120 other 0 

So as reGus said that means the relay or contol board or both ... Correct ???

Yes, if the Relay (or Controller) was bad, you'd get 240 across the Red to Black, but that would also mean you should have 120 between Red and ground.. and 120 between Black and ground.

... and the Dryer is set to HEAT ?

The Relay could "click" but still have bad, pitted, burned, corroded, contacts...

Re checked .. 120 on black and 120 on read .. 240 on both ...

So this is definatly the board/relay .... I pick one up in the AM ...

HECK YA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  the new board did the trick !

SOooooo what have i learned .. if you check everything else then it must be the relay/board ... Dont waste time on the the centrifugal switch on on the motor . LOL

Seriously .... Thanx Regus .. Dont know how i brain farted on testing the relay circuit ... For Some reason i thought that if each wire had 120v and relay kicking then it must be good ... Never thought to check for 240 across the wires Urrg

Leson learned ...  i Pretty much know every inch ,switch,relay wire and screw on this model now ... If any one needs to know anything just let me know
