Check you flame. If the flame is very short (less than half way down the burner tube, it can be a gas pressure regulator failure. They are adjustable but that usually indicated it is about to fail. Make sure the flame ignites every time you hear the relay and solenoid valve click. The is a small panel on the front that can be removed to see the burner and the pressure regulator. The is a glow igniter that comes on several seconds before the gas is admitted. Confirm that works. Check at the dryer vent whether you smell gas once and a while which would be an indication of a failure to ignite.

have you checked the relay for the igniter and confirmed there is power to the igniter?

Hi Andrea, your machine has a bad tub bearing. Considering the age of your machine, you may want to consider replacing the unit. I would call your local repair company and get a quote for the repair. Hope that helps.

the bearing of the motor are worn out. I think you will need to buy a replacement. TO my knowledge the individual parts for the motor are not readily available (I hope I am wrong about the parts...)

Most likely cause for not starting is the door safety switch. press in the door hard while trying to start it. If that works then the adjustment of the safety switch is required. if that fails, check the functioning (electrically) or the switch it self

There are two coils on the gas valve that fail from time to time. Before changing them, check to see if you can light the burner by using something like a bar b q lighter or a long match as soon a the igniter switched off to confirm whether the gas valve is working. I have had the same problem and had to replace the coils on the gas valve. One of the coils is an opening and the other is a hold coil.

Failure to start spinning is usually caused by the door (safety) switch not working. Depending on what you broke off, you may have to replace the whole switch

The most likely cause is a lack of tension on the belt.?

I'm not familiar with this particular model so here's a few diagnostic pointers;
It may be that there's a spring-loaded belt tensioner that you've not properly reattatched.?

I could be that there's a (or a couple) of tension-adjustment bolts, around the drive-motor, which can move the motor a little, to take up the belt tension.?

It could also be that the new drive-belt is NOT the correct one for the job.?
If there is no tensioner or adjuster, then the belt will be a 'stretch' type, which is a tiny bit undersized & needs to be gently levered into place on the motor & drum pulleys.?

The old belt should have a part number on the webbing on the outside of it.
Make sure that the new belt has exactly the same part number on it.?

Automatically resetting thermostatic switches have a natural lifespan.
The more often that they trip-out, the weaker they get,
so the more likely they become to trip-out.

There's a good chance that yours has reached the end of it's lfe & will need to be replaced.

If you're a good DIY'er, you can do it yourself.?
If not, you'll need an engineer to come out to replace the part.
