Dryer wont start, drum hard to turn-revised

I found out more about my Kenomore dryer problem. At first, it wouldn't start and the drum was hard to turn. I can actually turn the drum while I push the start button and get it to run, but it sounds like a "Flat tire(unbalanced drum)" and then stops and hums.

Just fitted a new belt to my dryer now it wont turn have checked for any loose wires


Are you sure you have the belt on correctly? When you start it does the motor run or try to run? Does it hum or buzz when trying to start? Take the belt off & start it see if the motor runs if it does check if drum, belt and idler pully are installed correctly.
Check the drum rollers and drum glides be sure the drum turns ok. Be sure everything is installed correctly & turns OK . Are you getting power? Hard to tell what is wrong without much information about what is going on. You might check the front panel & see if it is binding on the drum not letting it turn. Hope there's something here that will help you.

My dryer wont start. When i turn the button to start it, it hums but wont run.


something is jamming the drum of the dryer from turning... remove the casing and take a closer look. There may also have been something recently dried which may have come out and jammed the dryer drum. Try hand turning the dryer drum to see... it should freely revolve at least a little bit
Good luck with it

Drum is hard to turn. When running, there is a loud high pitched squeal. I oiled the pully area in the back, and the noise stopped and the drum turned, briefly. Now, the drum doesn't turn at all. ???


if you got oil on the belt or the part of the pully where the belt rides then the belt is sliping and wont turn the drum.

you will need to get the oil off of the belt or buy a new one and you will need to get the oil off the motor pully and the idler pully and if any oil is on the drum.

This is where I would start given the information you have given.

WONT DRY,DRUM WONT TURN


This sounds like the motor that drive the drum has packed it in could be the capacitor or the centrifugal switch cant say with the amount of info given. I am quite sure it is with the motor as manually turning it is assisting with the start up of the motor

Dryer Motor won't always start Model FSE747GES


Too much drag on the Drum. Try lubricating the rollers that the drum turns on. Check the belt tensioner pully...lubricate that as necessary. If Drum still turns very hard after this then take belt off of motor and try turning drum. If drum turns easily then replace motor.

Lg dryer


Sounds like you have a motor going out. If you take it back apart see how hard the motor is to turn by hand. Also look for lint in the motor by the start switch.
