My dryer drum stopped turning. The dryer will turn on

I think my drive belt broke. I heard a loud noise went in to look and smelled burning rubber. Dryer was still running just the drum wasnt turning. How hard is this to replace ourselves and how would we do it.

It does sound like the belt is broken. you will need to access the inside of the dryer by removing the front. they all come apart differently. Make and Model would help me tell you more.

Asko t701 dryer burning smell


Loud noise is not a good description. What does it sound like? The dryer has a belt that turns the drum, the belt can wear and slip, there is a also a tensioner pulley on the belt system and then there is the motor that turns the drum. The smell could be from the belt, however you should know that dryers are not maintenance free and you have to clean them at least annually because they can build up lint in the cabinet and that lint can get into the heating element and it can start a fire.

check for a broken drive belt for the drum
the clunk may have been from the belt as it broke and hit the cabinet

Loud noices when running,some burned rubber smell


The only rubber part is the belt that drives the drum around. The belt rides on a tensioner which has a pulley on it with a bearing built into it. When the bearing goes bad the pulley will not turn freely causing the belt to get hot and smell. Its time for a new pully and bearing assembly for your dryer

When you turned the drum backwards you caused the belt to come off. Put the belt back on.
While you have it open to re-install the belt check the blower wheel very carefully for the noise. It is probably loose and needs replacing.

Horrible noise and burning smell when dryer is on


Same thing happened to us, the noise is one of your wheel bearings are going bad, (they are just a small piece of plastic rollers) and the smell is your belt. The dryer is dismantled from the front. I figured out how to take my dryer apart from google. Also, you may need some help to pull out the drum wheel and pay attention to how it came out. I ordered parts from repairclinic.com and it was very inexpensive and the parts took 3 days to come to me ( I wouldn't pay for faster shipping).
Good luck, you won't believe how uncomplex your dryer really is.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer


Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

I have a kenmore series 80 dryer model 110-70812990 that i heard a bang then the drum stopped turning and i smelled burning rubber. I'm guessing that the drive belt broke. How easy would that be to repair...


Remove back of drier after disconnecting the power cord. Find old belt laying on floor under machine. Obtain new belt and place around drum and motor pulley. done

Loud noise and smell


It would help to know the brand and model number of the washer. If it has a belt that also runs the pump, something may have gotten into the pump during drain and locked the pump causing the belt to slip.
