dryer starts and shuts off after 1-2 mins.

Dryer will start and then shut down. Have to open door and turn drum to get to restart. Sometimes 2 - 3 tries and other times no problem. Almost as if going out of balance. If you do not turn drum, dryer will just beep and not restart. More of an issue with smaller loads than heavier.

can8dnrose , By having to give it a helping hand to spin almost sounds like a failing motor or possibly loose belt. Find below a link to service manual which can tell you how to access diagnostic mode, test and troubleshoot your dryer. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
