Heater comes on no problem (so its not the thermal switch).
When I take belt off the motor does not turn until I give it a slight nudge. If I put the belt back on I still cant get the drum to turn (probably because I cant turn it fast enough to start the motor up).
Could this be the capacitor? I've heard that this type of motor uses the capacitor to kick start the motor.
To be honest, it started happening but if you left it for 30 mins it would then work OK (capacitor charging?). Now thought theres nothing.
My wife insists though that occasionally the dryer stopped half way through. I know its a reverse action so I was wondering if this could be explained by the motor needing to stop and then restart in the opposite direction (using the capacitor).
Any ideas ?
