Re: drum stopped turning on hot point dryer
Open the door. Get a screw driver. Look up and remove two screws that hole the top on. Get em off and remove the top. Look down in the front and check the slides. I bet they are gone!. They are easy to replace. Sometimes you let them go too long and the bearing they mount on is worn out and you start hitting the droor, hence the squeal. You remove the front by removing 2 screws that hold it to the frame and lift it of. Replace the parts. All are mounted on the front. Clean out the lint in the filter housing. The bearing and slides cost around 25 bucks total. This is simple.

A fairly common problem! The official instructions are
Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.
Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START
If your clothes dryer has any sort of uncommon noises coming from it they are fairly easy to repair. The drum turns with the help of a belt with a belt tensioner. The tensioner keeps the belt tight. The tensioner also has a roller with a bearing. If the bearing goes dry it will squeak. If the bearing locks up the belt will burn and you will smell burning rubber. Eventually the belt will break off. The roller can be ordered from most companies with the belt. It is advisable to replace the drums front seal that rides along the front panel. These will wear and squeak too in time. To service these parts the front panel must be removed to gain access. All parts are fairly easy to repplace with someone helping you to hold the drum up when re assembly come up. You can also ask me more questions if needed.
Thanks for stopping by reading my tips!
dryer won't run, but hot air blow and humming when turned on Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt. It will take care of your problem
When I try and start my ge dbb3300eaoww dryer it buzzes as if it wants
to start if I spin it with my hand it will work. I put a new belt on it
and it does the same thing. Motor start switch is bad. This is typically replaceable with out replacing the motor. Will take care of the problem.
My drum will sometimes stop turning in the middle of a cycle, and the
motor just hums. I pause the dryer, open the door, rotate the drum,
unplug and plug the electrical, and then it will usually complete the
cycle. Does that mean the belt is "occasionally" slipping? How do I
check this? Replace the belt. It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time. This will take care of the problem.
A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.
