Are you getting heat and can you hear the motor running? If so then you've just had a belt snap. It's a pretty easy fix. You just gain access to the dryer through the back. Remove the several screws that hold the back pannel in place. You will most likely see the broken belt as soon as you remove the panel.

A new belt is very inexpensive! Good luck!

Kenmore 90 series makes a loud noise during spinning and it looks like the basket is loose


On most Kenmore or whirlpool dryers, you have two wheels that have rubber around them. They look like wheels off of rollerblade skates. They simply bolt on to the back, but you have to usually put a large piece of wood to act as a fulcrum as you support the weight of the drum and change out the two wheels. Check with searspartsdirect.com for the parts prior to taking the dryer apart. I had a machine that sounded like tennis shoes were rolling around the drum and fixed the issue by simply replacing these two wheels.

Good Luck

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin


How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Very loud banging and clanking when the drum is spinning


If the dryer is making this noise the roller on the belt tensioner has a flat spot causing this to happen. The roller and belt are replaced as a unit. If it is the washer unit the spring has fallen off on one side of the drum which is one of two that balances the drun while spinning

Kenmore model # 110.22632.100 does not spin real fast inspin cycl


turn dryer on & make sure that the drum on your dryer is spinning, this could be a belt issue going bad or if the drum is not spinning the belt has broke. It also could be the lint system needs to pulled appart and cleaned out with a chop vac. It could also be exhaust tube kinked behind the machine.

Dryer drum not rotating


Drill holes all the way through the drum. Use carrage bolts to reattach the Bearing block through the drum into the block. Use lock washer and or locktite.

Dryer won't spin on my kenmore stacked model 417.90812991


This is the 2nd time I have this problem.
IF you look thry the drum to the back you should see 3 screw heads. Mine has one screw still in the hole and 2 empty holes.
This requires the drum to be removed (like take the drier apart). Behind the drum is Asmbly-shaft (ball hitch) (item 32 in the parts list). This what the 3 screws screw into.
I spent 2 days trying to put the screws in without removing the drum not possible (no way to hold the drum in place)
The first time I had to replace the drum because it wore the rim through.
I have to get 3 new screws and some thread locker.
I recommend that you check the screws every month, Use a long phillips screw drive
