My thin twin dryer goes on but does not spin

The dryer motor goes on and makes a winding sound.  It is working and has power, but it does not rotate.  We opened the back, but found there is no belt.  What can we do?

I have miele gas dryer t9820 is not rotating inside although it make a sound...


The problem is likely with the centrifugal switch on the dryer motor. This switch connects the start winding of the motor which provides additional torque at startup. Once the dryer is up to speed, the switch disconnects the start winding. If it malfunctions, the dryer will not turn and the motor will hum. By spinning the drum, you are providing enough torque for the start winding to be able to take over and bring the dryer up to speed.

You may be able to correct this by simply lubricating the centrifugal switch which may be sticking. I am not sure if the centrifugal switch is replacable, or if a new motor is necessary if lubricating does not solve your problem

Whirlpool thin twin stacked,won't agitate or spin


whirlpool washers have a drive coupling in between the motor and the transmission to replace this remove the top and disconnect the lid switch set it aside remove the front panel then remove the 2 clips that hold the pump on then push it out of the way then remove the 2 screws that hold the motor clamps on and then remove the upper and lower motor clamps remove the motor then replace the three piece "motor coupling" one piece goes on the motor the other three pronged plastic piece goes on the transmission and the rubber isolator goes between them and now just put every thing back together

I have to manually get drum turning...


Yes, there is a "startup" switch. It's the button you push on the panel (but I'm sure you know about that).

This switch energizes the start winding in the motor -- when the motor gets up to speed, a centrifugal switch in the motor disconnects the power from the start winding and switches to the run winding.

Either the start winding is not getting power or the winding is bad. If "no power" is the problem, it could be the button on the panel or a loose/dirty connection between there and the start winding. Lot of possibilities which need to be explored.

But if you know about pushing the safety switch on the door and spinning the drum by hand to get the motor started, you can probably fix this.

Dryer not working


the button you push is a momentary start switch.whats suppose to happen is the power passes thru the push to start switch for a moment till the motor centrifugal switch goes to the run winding.what i have found happening is a lint buildup in the motor switch area dose not allow the motor centrifugal switch to reset to the start winding when the dryer has finished the last load.so its trying too start on the run winding and it could only do that if you helped by spinning the drum while hold the start switch.soooooo.... unplug unit .get to the motor and vacuum it out.inspect your wiring for burnt/loose connections.if all is well and vacuuming did not solve problem.your motor may have an open start winding which you could check with an ohm meter.if you need any more help you can make an request thru fixya email. God bless ,tom

When a load is added to dryer the dryer has difficulty starting to spin, this problem has got worse, now it will only start if there is only a couple of items in the drum (2kg) any more and the motor just...


The typical motor has to elements to it. There is a start winding and a run winding. The start winding supplies the initial kick that your machine is missing and the run winding supplies the running power. In some cases the relay on the motor itself can be adjusted to allow the start winding to perform its function. In most cases the entire motor will need to be replaced.

In some rare instances there have been misshapen blower wheels which cause excessive friction on the blower housing which in turn mimics a bad start winding.

To make a long story short the changing of a motor on the Bosch dryer (either the large dryer or the small one) is fairly involved and you should have a professional check it out.

How can I fix my whirlpool thin twin washer?


It almost sounds like your motor is kicking out on overload. The fact that it starts agitating after the fill can rule out the pressure switch. You have installed a new timer so we should be able to rule that out. It's possible that your pump is binding, which is attached directly to your motor and causing it to overheat. To tell for sure you would have to check the motor to see if it's getting power when it cuts out. Check your terminal block where the power cord comes in to see if all connections are secure. Other possibilities could be the clutch and brake assy. With out being there too see the problem, this is where I would start.
