Take off the back and you should see the motor. You can also lean it over on the frontside and get to the motor. If your drum is not turning and the belt is not loose, then the problem lies in the axle or sprocket the drum turns on. It may have seized up and needs to be lubricated. Check your motor and see that it runs.

My gas dryer stopped turning.


There are two options on why your dryer would stop turning.
1. Your dryer motor quite
2. the dryer belt either came off or broke.
you will need to take the dryer apart to see if the belt is broken. if not than it is your motor.

Please let me know if you need further assistance in this matter.

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

Put a belt on a dryer


Hello vanessastar3. Your dryer may have a motor mount with cushion or spring mounts and they may have grown weak with age. If the dryer performes substantially this maybe the lose point. Check your belt route most units have a flate spring supported roller and this maybe your weak spot. I will need Mgfr. & model# to be more pin point to the problem area if these suggestions don't correct the problem. Have fun.

Dryer not spinning


ok this sounds simple
if the dryer stopped spining there are 4 things to look at
1 the belt for dryer if this snapped the drum will stop spining
2 the dryer wheels these ware down and break off this is what helps keep dryer in a spin straight
3 this is the crucial one the motor siezed up from lack of appliance oil not being added to a regular maintenance
4 the guages has stopped working but i doubt this if it still keeps a timer going round this would not be it you dont have to run dryer to test guages just set guage to a time and see if it rotates with the time on it
the belt you can check your self by pulling down the dryer pan that will show bottom of dryer with belt if its a belt simple maytag can come out and do a replacement and maintenance on the spot
i hope this helped seeing im not there to actually see in person whats actually wrong
