We bought this dryer back in Sep 1999. It has been excellent and we have not had any problems with it for the past 12.5 years. I have pulled the front off of it every couple of years to make sure all the lint is cleaned out of it. It was working through last Saturday night. On Sunday morning the start button was pushed again and all it would do is buzz and the tumbler would not move. I can move the tumbler by hand with force so I am assuming the belt is still in place.
I have been doing some reading and from what I am finding it could be either the motor or some sort of fuse or relay connected to the motor. However I have not found anyone who has described exactly what I am finding with this dryer.
I realize that I can make a cable to plug the dryer motor in to see if it runs and I may do that tomorrow. I would just like to get it fixed for my wife.
I videoed what it is doing this morning when you push the start button. Please go to here in order to veiw it
