Title: Dryer starts and immediately shuts off!!!
Post by: johnnyo36 on February 12, 2022, 06:16:43 PM
Dryer turns on and when i press start, the drum starts to turn and immediately and abruptly shuts off. 
A click sound heard is from the control board.

Belt looks good.  Drum does spin, with pressure, with and without the belt on.

Anyone experience this before?

You could try and put it diagnostics and run it manually to see if it still shuts off abruptly. I think itís unit off no lights, hold add time up and down then press power. You can cycle the tests with start. Might have a bad motor if itís split phase and itís stuck in start windings too causing motor to over heat. Simple test for that is start it, let it die, donít touch any buttons! then wait five minutes and itís thermal overload will reset then itíll start again and die. That would be a bad motor.
