I took the model number of the dryer to a supplier (Amre supply Hamilton On), they sold me the belt. I found replacment instructions on the web and did the job myself.

I have a moffat dryer and the drum won't turn, but the motor seems to hum like normal.

You probably have a broken belt that goes from the motor to the drum

I need to replace the front seal on the drum of my Moffat dryer (model # RCKH315EHWW, and am wondering if that is something that I would be able to do myself? Or, how much can I expect in labour? I already...

The drum gasket is WE9M26. To install it, it is the biggest job compared to any dryer gasket of hundreds of dryers that I have worked on.

See RCKH315EH0WW at:

In summary:
-Remove top
-Remove console (some plugs require a tiny screwdriver to pry off. Do not pull on the plugs too hard.)
-Unscrew front panel (some screws are on the front of the bottom panel. Do not remove yet)
-Remove both side panels (cut off zip ties)
-Remove front panel
-Remove air director (big white plastic part)
-Do NOT remove drum. The belt is too difficult to reinstall.
-Apply contact cement in the groove in the air director. Install new gasket.
-When reassembling, line up the duct with the rectangular groove in the air director.

Good luck and congrats if you succeed!

Fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.

Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt.
What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose.
Best wishes,

Dryer wont spin

If dryer does not spin it is usually a problem with the belt or the motor. Check also door switch.

See also following indications from Repairclinic:

It won't tumble If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor 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:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the 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.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
