does this restart ? or does it take a few minutes before it will restart? start it up and after it shuts down listen for a very faint click inside, let me know if you hear one after a few minutes, thanks Bryan

I will do this tommorrow, I have not waited a few minutes before just pressed the ON button and started the dryer back up.

Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok so it starts back up right away? you dont have to wait at all?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yes, as soon as it powers off you can restart the unit by pressing the ON button and then choose the desired drying mode.

ok I dont believe you have a bad motor then, its probably in the power bord assembly, Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=the relay on for the motor is probably not holding in, you said you checked all the thermostats so it isnt that, there isnt much more besides those, you can get this at it runs around $80.00, thanks Bryan
