Whirlpool Dryer wont spin

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?

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.

If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.

I have a Whirlpool commercial dryer model number LEQ7030KQ1. I will wash a load a clothes in the wash machine and they will come out so they are as spun dry as they can get. The problem I experience is...


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.

How old is my dryer it was a hand me down the model is LHE7800W1 and the serial is M11713347


The manufacture date is dtermined by the serial number on the appliance. The following link explains how to determine the date code from the serial number on a Whirlpool:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

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.

Wondering what year out dryer is from. The model is 76992100. The model series is 69921-79921 The serial no. is F83005027 The dryer is old, but how old? Thanks, Mary Lou Devaney, 174 Cambon Ave., St....


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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

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.

Plug dryer in wall wont start


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!

Dryer does not spin


Usually if a dryer won't spin, I suggest checking the belt to make sure it isn't broke or even the motor burned out. If you post a model number for your dryer, I may be able to assist you further.
