Belt broke

Posted on Dec 01, 2008

  • no you cannot get it at home depot, you can get it from sears.com
    you have to take the front off and put the belt on that way. i think there is a access behind the machine that you can see when you are putting the belt around the pulley.


  • ya it is kinda involved if you have never done it.

My dryer won't start. When i activate the start switch I hear a hum like the motor is bound up.. I opened the top and the drum is not stuck and the belt seems in good shape. The unit is about 4 years...


check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

My Frigidaire Affinity electric dryer will not start. Its only just over 2 years old. the timer counts down but the drum will not turn nor is there any heat. I've tried jumping the dryer but it still will...


Listen, when you push the start button to hear a low hum, if you do hear this it maybe that your belt is broken. This is an involved job but can be done if you are handy.

My dryer will not spin. It turns on, but doesn't spin.


Do you hear the motor turn on? If you do, most likely the drum belt has broken. The belt tensioning device is known to break as well causing the drum not to spin.

Hope this helps

When Turned on, drum will not spin?


if the motor is running,your belt is the problem.if all you hear is a slight humming noise,you may have a bad motor,or something caught in blower. if the drum turns easily by hand,its probably the belt

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Dryer motor


if the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.
