Hi all, Well " she who must be obeyed" has stated "if you don't fix it I will spend much money" So my Kenmore mod #110.66902690. Ser# 3015265. at any dry setting push to start, starts turning, release PTS , slows and stops turning. Door switch good. removed drum set to air fluff, simulated belt tension, activate push to start, motor spins up release PTS, and ...... slows to stop. Does this mean the thermal cutout on the motor is fried, and is only operating in PTS, overide? Mine does not have the eveheat funny card, or the relays under the control panel. I confirmed the white thermal overheat fuse has continuity. Is it new motor time? I would like to have run just one more year, if possible. Many thanks to all and many thanks for help fixing my GE gas oven. Ron

may be a dirty (lint) inside Start Switch on Drum Motor
OR bad Start Switch (part of Motor)
(or Motor not getting up to speed),

Could be the door latch assembly is broken; so as the load tumbles and bumps against the door, it opens it just enough that it kills power to the motor. Won't restart until you press the Start button.

Check it out and come git you a new door latch kit if you need it ==> http://www.repaircli...er=110.66902690

Not the switch-- the LATCH. No wires attached to it.

So am I missing something or based on the conditions I have listed am I just confirming the motor is toast? Is the any other test for the motor or am I at the limit of unit part troubleshooting and the next logic tree step is "replace motor /start switch unit" ? Thanks again if it had wings and a propellor it would yield to my vast aeronautical knowledge and experience. Honest wanna by a bucket of propwash ?

So getting up to speed, that would mean that the flyweights pulled the slip ring down as centrifigul force overcame the spring tension. Then the black switch attached to the motor frame thats activated by the slip ring, containing flat springs and points has failed in some way. And this probly only available as " motor /switch assembly". Okay I'm problbably trying to dig to deep, but failure analysis is my thing. And according to the indicated problems corrective action recommended by Grand MasterREGus would be the 'motor /switch assembly. Domo Arigato Sensi and Grand Master's. I will donate to your very good cause. Ron
