Admiral dryer AED4475TQ1 will not start or even hum. Have checked continuity on the start button, door switch, cycling thermostat, and thermo fuse. I check the 220 & there is power to the outlet. Have hand spun the drum/motor and it turns freely. One time I held the start button down and turned the timer dial and got it start & run for a while. After shutting it off, I have not been able to repeat the action or get it to run. Can you help?

<p>I tested the timer and it does have power. I also rechecked the switches.</p><p>What else can I check</p><p> I have been waiting for over 7 hours for a response. Is anyone there?</p>
If the start switch is getting power check the connections at the motor.
What wires do I check on the motor?
The wire that runs from the start switch.
I have power running down to the motor but it still will not start. So if I have power and everything checks out, then my suspiscion is that my motor is no good? Any other things I should check?
If the motor is getting power then yes it is bad and needs to be replaced.If this has been helpful please press accept.

Ok Thank You very much.
You are welcome.
Hi Tom. I replaced the motor and the dryer still won't turn on. If I wiggle the timer and hold the start button, then it tries to turn over.

Yes. When I hold the start button down and wiggle the timer sometimes it wants to start.
Ok. Thank you again.
