Customer Question
Hi, When I try...

Hi, When I try to start my dryer, it trys to start but won't catch. I'm sure the drum is not turning. If I keep trying sometimes it will start and run just fine. So it has an intermittent starting problem that is now pretty bad. Any ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Maytag ~15

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes
