Bryan, I am not able to get that information till later today. I will send the model number to you. In the meantime, any initial suggestions?
Is the buzz loud when you try to start this ? does it sound like the buzz is from the motor? try this if you get the chance. have someone hold the door switch button in for you while you press start and spin the drum. see if it starts. can you do that later ?
Sure I will try that later. Sounds like you are focusing on the motor initially. If it does not begin to turn, where do I look next?
Bryan, the model number is XXXXX It is a Kenmore Series 400. I did hold the start switch, door switch and turned the drum. The drum did begin to turn and stayed turning. When I tried it a second time without pushing the drum, the machine just buzzed.
Yes, I hit the send in error. I sent you a second set of questions. I can resend if needed.
When trying to disconnect the fan from the motor, the plasctic end of the fan got chewed up. Do you have the part number for a replacement fan? Also any suggestions how to get the old fan off the shaft. Online there are less expensive motors to be found. Do you know if these lessor priced motors are OEM and of the quality of the part you recommended?
