Okay, I went to the house today. They ended up buying another used dryer. This time they got an Admiral dryer mod# ADE7000AYW
. Thing is, they were having basically the same problem with the newer one. It would start up run for about 10 seconds and then stop. The owner said the had to take the cord off of the old dryer since their outlet was a 3 prong. I checked the cord for continuity. The cord was bad.
I also got to take a look at the GE. The front drum bearing was tore up so badly that the drum cut through the door. So the GE had both a bad cord and front drum bearing. They are letting me have their GE. Thanks for your help!
