LG dryer won't turn when start button pushed


Hello,

My LG TROMM front load dryer won't start when start button is pushed. However, if I take the top off and manually spin drum it turns and continues normally. Any ideas what causes this?

Thanks,
tdsilk

Thank you. Does this require a new motor? If so, is there a recommended place to purchase? Lastly, can someone point to the steps to replace the motor?

Regards

If it the case then yes, it will need to be replaced. The motor can be bought at a local appliance store that has a service dept. They can also, maybe, give you some pointers on changing it out. Not real hard to do, just need to unhook everything that is attached to it and is holding it in.

i would rate changing an LG dryer motor at about a difficulty 6. You have to remove the top (easy) remove the front & remove the bulkhead (not so easy).
