My dryer stopped heating. Replaced element. Got too hot. Put a thermal cut kit in. Then it wouldn't spin. Put a new motor in. Current status: heater turns on if it's just plugged in and it won't spin. It just makes a clicking sound when I press the start button. Need help please.

Thanks,


Current status: heater turns on if it's just plugged in and it won't spin.
Make sure the heat switch on the motor ( often terminals 1&2 ) is open when the motor is not running.

EG diagram is here...on this EG you can see terminals 1&2 close ( 2M 1M ) when the motor is running and should be open when the motor is not running.
