I have a whirlpool dryer model number LEQ7030KQ1. It is only a couple of years old according to the person I bought it from 1 month ago. It has been working well and just now it comes on and heats up but does not spin. My guess is it is a belt. What do you think is the problem and the solution?

Re: Whirlpool Dryer wont spin
Hello and welcome to FixYa! This should be easy for you to diagnose. Open the door, grab ahold of one of the fins and try to spin the drum by hand. If the belt is broken, the drum will spin easily. The part number you will need is a 341241.

Did you mean that you need to press manually to have the drying done well, if so the program settings is what is wrong?
Does a good timing setting work on the set?
Please clarify more.the fault you are.experiencing.
The second digit represents the YEAR of manufacure. The first two numbers after that represent the WEEK. So...according to the serial number you provide, this dryer was manufactured the first week in May of 1981. That would make your dryer almost 29 years old.
FYI: Even though the dryer is old, many of the parts are still used in modern appliances today, so parts are still available. Whirlpool did not change their parts too much over the years. I found a parts listing for this dryer available at pcappliancerepair.com. I hope you find this information helpful.
The model number you provided has a prefix of "110" accompanying the number. That indicates the manufacturer of this Kenmore dryer is Whirlpool. The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains:
The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The second digit identifies, the YEAR. According to the information I provided, that would mean your dryer was manufactured in July of 1988. So your dryer is 21 years young.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: These were well built appliances. The same design is used in Whirlpool appliances to this day.
The most obvious thing to me is that the cord may have been loosened or damaged by the move, or the terminals in the machine may have loosened. Either test the cord on your "new" machine, or replace it with a known "good" cord. Wait a minute....you already have one of those....
Try it, it may be the very thing!
