Do you hear a loud hum when fully loaded? Or does it go away when empty?

    This is good because a hum is a 180 dollar motor, I would but some money toward a belt tensioner and belt if it is like the old style dryer, like a series 70 or 80 Kenmore. Let me know what type it is and I will get you a solution:]

I have a kenmore front load dryer 110.97892601 that drum is not turning anymore.


It sounds like the belt may have broken or stretched and came off. That is assuming that it is getting the correct power.

I have an eziloader 6kg dryer, the drum does not spin but the heater element turns on. How do I check if the belt has come off?


can you turn the drum reasonably easy whilst the machine is empty and off . If you can than the drum has no load and the belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley or the drum . Disconect power cord from socket and remove back off machine ..You know should be able to access drive belt and either replace belt onto drum and drive motor or purchase and fit new belt . It is a good idea to replace a belt that has slipped off and is not broken - belts stretch and its likely to come off again . If this is one with a sealed back then turn it on side and remove base to reach belt .

My whirlpool duet (Model # WFW8400TW02 )washer stopped working. the steel drum is not rotating and clothes are not getting washed. please let me know what could be the problem.. --Ritu


If this has a belt, then the belt may be broken or stretched out. Bad drum bearings can seize up and won't let the drum rotate anymore. A bad door switch can cause the machine not to run.

Washer does not agitate or spin after cycles but fills and empties water and motor is going


Belt is broken. Remove front cover of washer. If you look where top meets front in the seam there are two clips, using a flat head screwdriver push into seam and pop clip. Front will then remove. Check belt at bottom of unit. Replace with the same belt. Difficult to get new belt on! You have to start with belt on motor pulley then on drum pulley holding and turning drum pulley as you stretch belt around pulley. Replace front cover.

Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt. It will take care of your problem

When I try and start my ge dbb3300eaoww dryer it buzzes as if it wants to start if I spin it with my hand it will work. I put a new belt on it and it does the same thing.
Motor start switch is bad. This is typically replaceable with out replacing the motor.
Will take care of the problem.


My drum will sometimes stop turning in the middle of a cycle, and the motor just hums. I pause the dryer, open the door, rotate the drum, unplug and plug the electrical, and then it will usually complete the cycle. Does that mean the belt is "occasionally" slipping? How do I check this?
Replace the belt. It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time. This will take care of the problem.
