This saga just keeps getting better. My wife finds a GE Mod DJSR473ET6AA on the web site for the local trader. People want $50, seems like a good deal, dryer is in good shape. I get around to hooking it up tonight and this one won't go. It's getting it 240V according to the multimeter. The light in the tumbler comes on when the door is open, it goes off when the button is pushed.
What I've thought was a little odd, is that when the door is open and the dryer is set to timer setting it is making a noise and it coming from the dial with the timer. It hasn't moved that I noticed so I'm going to let it sit with the door open for 5 or so minutes to see it it moved.
Holy cow, the timer moved with the door open. It didn't move one minute when I had the power on and the door shut. So, now I'm really back ackwards confused.
