Customer Question

I have a neptune electric dryer. It has worked great until now. The start button seems to have a problem Sometimes when I push the start button the moisture monitor lights up and it sounds like it is trying to tumble. Other times the moisture monitor doesn't light up and nothing happens. Occasionally it will work. This problem just started 9/20/08.

Hi,

Yes it does buzz most of the time and I can turn it by hand with a little effort. Thanks for your help so far. What does it need to work again? Can my friend get the part and install it? He is pretty mechanical.

Thanks again,

Cheryl

Hi Bryan,

Thanks so much. I called them and the motor is $90. How hard is it to install? And, should I replace it or get a new dryer. This one is 11 years old
