Drum Spins, But No Heat
Motor On, But Drum Doesn't Turn
Replace the worn or broken drum belt that spins the drum. The idler and motor pulleys that spin the belt, the tension spring and the roller that the drum rides upon may also be causing the problem. Try tightening the motor pulley. Have the parts replaced, or the motor serviced.
Slow Drying Time

Dryer Makes Noise
Tighten any loose parts that shake as the dryer operates. Replace the worn belt, idler pulley or support rollers. The noise could also be a loose blower that will need to be fixed or replaced. Noise can also indicate that the motor bearings are damaged; if this is the case,service the motor.
Dryer Doesn't Operate
Check the power cord to determine if it is unplugged or damaged. If the door switch, thermostat, timer, motor switch or start switch is damaged, have it replaced. If the motor-overload protector was activated due to too many clothes in the dryer, let the machine restated cool down for 15 minutes.
