Hello this is Dave and I'm happy to help you. Does the F-24 come up on the display when you try to start or did you get that running diagnostics? That code is for the inlet thermistor. Let me know and then we will do testing if you have a meter.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
came up running diagnostics
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Okay, that might be an old code. Do you have a volt meter?

Before we start does the door switch lever get pushed in by the door when it closes and does it click?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it does and there is a clicking, also the drum light goes on and off when I open the door
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Okay, see what you get at the control from the P9-1 blue wire to the P8-3 white wire when you press start. Should be 120 volts a/c

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
don't know where those wires are
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Those are at the control. They are the output to the motor. This would show if the problem is the control or something else. Is the belt intact? There is a broken belt switch in series with the motor.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it looks like 120 is there
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
don't know where the broken belt switch is don't see a BELT
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

When you press start is there any humming?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

If you don't see a belt going around the drum you just found the problem. Can you see a line going around the drum near the middle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is no belt going around the drum. there is a silver line where there should be a belt ? how big of a pain is it to put on a belt?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Let me look. I think I can send you a link to a video and the part number.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Here you go. You should be able to do this without any problems. Best wishes. Belt replacement video link
