Hello-

Loaded up the dryer, pushed start button and it hummed and didn't start going. Wife yelled that the lights upstairs were dimming. Emptied the dryer and tried again. Hummed and then started, but seemed to take longer than usual. Put a few more clothes in and it did the same thing. Added that last sweatshirt, pushed the start button and it hummed and then clicked and now 'nothing'. Lamp still works. Spent ten minutes, googling and registering for this forum, check circuit breaker (good) and tried again. Hummmmm, click. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jonathan

Seemed to need some cooling off time.
If the motor shuts off on it's built in safety/thermal switch, it will need some cooling down time before the motor will attempt to run again.

Is it worth repairing
We don't know the condition of the rest of the unit, once the cost of repair gets up to or over 50% of the cost to purchase a new unit, we suggest replacing rather than repairing. If the condition is good and the cost is below 50% it is likely worth repairing.
