okay. Now that its replaced it seems to turn correctly again but the dryer wont start is that correct ?
It always turned correctly... to the right, the dryer started, the switch would spring back. Even with the new switch, it turns correctly... but it makes a buzzing noise and the dryer doesn't turn on... that's the same thing it did prior to me replacing the start switch.
oh okay I see. reach inside and spin the drum by hand, does it have resistance like the belt is good or does it seem to turn real easy ?
It has resistance...like the belt is good.
It's fairly loud yes. I'm all alone right now. What should I do?
Okay... I'll see what I can do. Can you hold?
Okay... I taped the door switch flat, turned the start switch on and spun the drum and the dryer started! With the tape off, door shut, I turned the start switch... just the old noise. Dryer doesn't start.
