are u able to spin the drum manually? do u hear any sounds? squeaking? scraping? smell anything? the rollers (spinners lol) usually make funny noises when they go out and may still turn but roughly. Bad bearings may be an issue here? However if the motor has bad windings it may not have enough power to run (turn) drum consistantly, u can remove the drum and belt and housing and run the motor by itself and see if it turns and runs easily. with no pressure or weight added? Then add drum and belt, once the drum is added and it stops or runs half hazardly its ur motor ? In some cases the tensioner the belt sits on ( near the motor) can be damaged and cause similar problems , lastly u did add the belt correctly?
are you sure youve got the right belt for that model dont know if all belts are standard or not its a posibilty you have the wrong belt as im asuming your your turning the drum when empty when you get it over the drum and motor should be really tight hope this helps you
There are three possible reasons why the drum doesn't turn.
Broken belt. You replaced the so in this case it's not.
Door switch. The dryer will not operate if teh door switch is defective. It is inside the drier main housing near the door frame. You need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Replace if defective.
Motor. If the motor hums when the start button is pressed, the motor maybe burned-out. Check the dryer motor:
Check the blower fan housing for obstruction and manually turn the motor shaft.
If the motor is very stiff or cannot be turned manually, you need to replace the motor.
If the motor rotate freely, run the motor without the belt. If it runs fine, there maybe problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum.
Rotate the drum by hand. If it is difficult to rotate it, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley. Reassemble the dryer and try it again.
If the motor hums but does not run on it's own even without the belt,but can be turned freely by hand, you need to replace the motor start capacitor or the motor itself.
Hello, Here are a few things to check. If you don't feel comfortable performing these check, please have a repair person come in and check it.
* Broken belt. Open dryer and see if belt is still wrapped around the drum. Pull on the belt to make sure it's not just hanging there. Inspect belt condition. Do not apply spray adhesive in this case: replace the belt. If belt is broken, look for contributing causes for failure such as worn drum rollers, damaged felt kit, or stiff idler roller.
* Motor burned out. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer. If motor runs but is noisy and motor is unable to turn the drum when the drum belt is threaded back on the motor pulley, then replace the motor.
Sounds like the belt is broken. See if there is a trouble door in the back so you can inspect the belt. If it is broken, get a new one from the dealer, and ask for instructions for replacement. If you can only get the belt, google your unit for more help.
Not knowing what model you have. To reinstall most belts you must first remove the front of the dryer. Once the drum is exposed, then you can retrack the belt around the drum. You'll see where the other one passed. then you will have to place the belt around the tensioner and pulley. If you still have the manual, it should show you exactly what to do. Of course, shut the power off before making any repairs. But first i would take the back off and look at the motor down below. You can see the belt from this angle as well and it's a lot easier than taking the front off. Good luck.
