Dryer runs but drum doesn't turn

It worked fine then all of a sudden drum wouldn't turn. It's a Whirlpool electric dryer model # LER4600PQ1. Can I repair it myself if it's just the belt that came off?

    Yes, the belt is broken. They dryer heats up, but no rolly-roll.

    It sounds like your belt is broken. Does the motor sound like it is running?

My whirlpool duet electric dryer electrical systems and heat work fine, but drum won't turn and belt is in tact.


Check the motor capacitor,sometimes the capacitor could be faulty or the motor is faulty or check if the motor is receiving power,if it's receiving power try to replace the capacitor if the is any in the system,if still it's not working then the motor could be burnt.

Also check weather the timer is perfecty.

Dryer stooped working suddenly.


Replace the fan belt that turns the dryer drum. Use only the genuine replacement spare part for your dryer.

I have a used Kenmore Series 80 dryer & the drum stopped turning


Good day,
Not hard to do but check the 2 rear wheels that support the drum and change at the same time if needed. Inspect the belt tensioner as well.
Here's a good tutorial on the belt change.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Drum not turning


remove panels to gain access to the drum belt and replace it. usually less than $10 repair for do-it-yourself.
