Question about Samsung 7.3 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Electric Dryer
I have a samsung dv316les/xaa and the power comes on but the drum will not trun any ideas.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:
If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.
If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

1) On the back where the Vent comes out you have 4 total screws. 3 of them are on the outside edge and the fourth is more of a middle mount that holds the tube to this bracket. Remove all four screws now you can lift and lean this plate to remove it.
2) This will also free up the vent tube and it can be pulled and cleaned also if you desire.
3) With these items out of the way you can now access the pulley for the belt and other items.
