is there any fuse or switch that could blow under load?
I have a bad motor that was only turning when tub was empty. It would strain but not turn when loaded tub
while testing under load it was staining then just stopped - power to unit is ok
could it be the motor finally burned out?
does the start switch #279173 have a relay ?

Hi,

is there any fuse or switch that could blow under load?
The house fuse only.
Your dryer has a thermal fuse in it, but for the heat only and nothing to do with the motor. The motor itself has a built in thermal/safety switch that can shut down the motor, it will usually reset once the motor has cooled down.

does the start switch #279173 have a relay ?
Nope.

Yes it could have.
Door switch, timer, motor safety could make the dryer dead.
