Broken belt is probable. If not, check the door switch operation. If that is ok, check voltage out of the timer to the motor.

SOURCE: whirpool dryer

once you take the element casing out of the dryer then you will see a screw at the very bottom of the casing where the element goes in. usually a 5/16 hex head screw.1933c22.jpg

SOURCE: whirpool electric dryer: heat turns on but no rotation

Your problem could be as simple as a broken drive belt.. or an overtemp switch.... If you've never replaced the drive belt.. then that is in all probability your problem.. If you reach inside the dryer drum and try to rotate it.. does it offer any resistance like it is turning a motor pulley system or is it free to rotate with very little resistance ( would suggest the belt broke).. If the cost to repair exceeds the cost to replace then you'd be better off replacing.. However ..if it is just a drive belt.. then I would just replace that.. Hope that helps...

SOURCE: my dryer tumbler will not turn however the light turns on

A couple things to check are, see if there is a broken drum belt and check the switch that starts the dryer. Check your plug also you may not be getting 220 volts. Sometimes the plugs go bad where you only have 110 volts

Whirpool dryer won't heat up


You need to replace the thermal fuse and the timer. A bad timer will over draw a thermal fuse and cause it to blow.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before servicing
