Mid-cycle this morning during a dryer load in my Whirlpool Electric Dryer I heard a sound which sounded like someone opened the dryer door. After that, it wouldn't start up again, so I took the top off of the machine and saw a broken belt.
I rotated the drum and the thing fell in the inside where I dug it out after I got the front of the machine off.
In any case, I now need to order the part. Before I do, however, I see in the parts diagram that there is a broken belt switch wire and want to make sure that doesn't need ordering and replacing at the same time that one replaces the belt. Not sure if that is a package kind of deal.
Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
P.S. I checked continuity on the thermal fuse and thermostats and they show resistance so I am not planning on changing those unless they have some kind of relay that craps out if one has a broken belt.
