My Ge Profile Dryer Gas (propane) Model #dpsr473gw0ww won't start. I press the start button and it sounds like its starting but when I let go of the button it stops. So it has power and wants to work but only when I hold the start button down. It doesn't seem to be tumbling when I hold the button down.

Thanks!

have someone hold the door switch and rotate the drum by hand while pressing the start button...
if it starts then...bad motor.

Ok it was the belt and the idler pulley wheel, both were bad. There was a kill switch on the idler pulley arm that kills the power if there is no tension.

Thanks!
