Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.
the front control panel has 2 little screws on the 2 top corners remove them, then pry off the entire control panel (very careful ) once the panel is off remove 4 screws that hold the front to the body, then open the door and remove the 2 screws in front next to the lint filter, slowly remove the front door assembly starting from top, disconnect the door switch, then lift it off the front hooks and the door is out, then remove the front 4 screws from the front bearing and remove, so will gain access to the blower housing, good luck
You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor
It sounds like the belt tensioner is bad. To look and see it the front panel must be removed for inspection. The belt wraps completely around the dryers drum with the belt running through a belt tensioner at the botton. The bearing and roller assembly should be checked thoroughly to see if its worn bad
unfortunatly it is either the motor or the drum bearings in the machine. if it is really hard to push i would suggest looking at all the bearings the drum rides on otherwise it is probably the motor that is getting weak.
Yes, there is a "startup" switch. It's the button you push on the panel (but I'm sure you know about that).
This switch energizes the start winding in the motor -- when the motor gets up to speed, a centrifugal switch in the motor disconnects the power from the start winding and switches to the run winding.
Either the start winding is not getting power or the winding is bad. If "no power" is the problem, it could be the button on the panel or a loose/dirty connection between there and the start winding. Lot of possibilities which need to be explored.
But if you know about pushing the safety switch on the door and spinning the drum by hand to get the motor started, you can probably fix this.
