Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - Gas Dryer - Drum Won't Spin

We have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer, model: LEQ8858HQ0 and the drum has stopped spinning.

So far, we have tried opening the door & moving it by hand, but it won't move. Not sure if the dryer is belt driven, but tried to take it apart. Right now, we can't figure out how to remove the fan motor out to get to the area where the belt might be. If anyone has any ideas, please help.


Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

If you are handy with tools, try to remove the back panel and feel the belt that should surround the drum. If access is that limited, try to turn the dryer on its side and you can get to the motor from the bottom. But like the guy said before, call a pro if you can't do any of this.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

We have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas Dryer that is getting intermittant heat. Sometimes it will heat, sometimes it won't. Iin addition, today it stopped rotating as well. Ideas?


Could just be a matter of wires coming loose. The movement and vibration of the spinning could have shaken wires loose. look for any wires not connected to anything.

Dryer won't spin. sounds like belt off tract


Hello there
here is some troubleshooting tips for you ok
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

You have a broken or loose drive belt.
You can order a new one online (repairclinic.com) have your make and model numbers handy.

You'll need to remove the front panel and drum front panel, the drum and route the new belt around the tensioner pulley below the drum...
It's a bit tricky but if you take your time you'll be able to do it..

I have a whirlpool gold ultimate care II electric dryer and have to dry everything on high twice to get it dried. any suggestions?


first how is the clothes out of the washer? That might not be spinning fast enough in final spin. When was the last time the dryer vents was cleaned. Do you have a flow out the vent? If so then something might be going on with sensors.

How do I access the drum of a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer?


I had to remove two screws from the brackets on the back of the dryer, and the two screws from the dryers screen. Then I pushed the pins under the top portion of the dryer with a standard screwdriver, as I pulled up on it. I was then able to access the drum area.
