You’re certainly welcome & thank you for the 5 stars?. You have a good idea on checking L1 at the start switch. From there across to the brown/yellow on the door switch you should read 120volts with the door closed & the timer set. Good luck & get back with us if you need more help.

Remember to disconnect power before attempting access & use extreme caution when checking voltage.

thank you very much, biker dave.

this is just what i need. i found a typical wiring diagram where i saw they are switching neutral for the door interlock and the light. after i replaced the burned out bulb i see the light circuit works. the other interlocks are much more difficult to reach without removing the drum. i will have to do that and ohm out the start circuit. i looks like the idler spring switch is in the seal-in circuit so it should start regardless of its position.. only other possibilities i can see are L1 dead or overload protector. thing was working great before i decided to replace the bearing. i can check L1 at start switch. hard to imagine overload protector is open.

anyway, thank you very much for the diagram. i feel confident i can get somewhere now.

On something like this you will need a wiring diagram & a meter to find the root cause of the failure. I am providing you with a wiring diagram that has the path of voltage to the motor outlined. Everything in the path has to read closed continuity on the ohmmeter. I suspect the belt switch or a wiring harness problem.

Remember to

disconnect power

to the dryer before attempting access.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
