Re: dryer Drum not rotating

If warm air is still coming from the unit, but the drum is not rotating, it sounds like your drive motor is fine, but your drive belt is broken. Depending on you dryer model, these can be fairly easy to check, or may take a little creativity to get the dryer apart. Knowing your dryer model number would go a long way towards assisting further.

Drying not taking place..... inside bucket only rotates

If the drum is rotating but the clothes are not drying, you have one of these problems:

  • Blower is loose on the motor shaft
  • Exhaust is plugged with lint
  • Heater is not working.
The quick check for the first two problems is to see if air is blowing out of the exhaust. If not, find out why.

If the air is cold, check the heater. In an electric dryer, the heater element could be burned out or one of the two thermostats (primary and safety) is open at room temperature (i. e., bad thermostat). In a gas dryer, the pilot ignitor or the gas valve is not working.

I have a kenmore electric dryer #86671100 it seems no air is exiting the dryer it gets warm, and the drum rolls just no air passing. I checked the screen it is clear what next?

Open the door, keep lid switch closed.
start dryer, does the drum roll? if so then
your fan on the motor may have broken
if drum does not roll you have a broken belt
either way you need a tech.

Loud bang during dryer rotation. front loaded dryer. dryer is six years old. bang is with evry rotation of drum.

not nkowing what brand, I would guess its a maytag or one of their brands. It sounds like a screw that mounts one of the paddles inside the drum has backed out and is now poking out the out side of the drum hitting the cabnet as it goes around. Un plug it , pop the top open , rotate the drum clock wise by hand slowly to see if a screw is standing up on drum.
If its a whirpool dryer with the lint filter inside the door, the top cabnet is dented down, hitting the drum.
someone sat on the top, bent it down.

Dryer drum not rotating

Drill holes all the way through the drum. Use carrage bolts to reattach the Bearing block through the drum into the block. Use lock washer and or locktite.

Whirlpool Ultimate care ii Dryer wont tumble

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

Remove the belt,
Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing,
Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

one of two types. "H" or "J"
