Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Motor is fine but drum won't turn. What could it be?

I have a Kenmore Mod: 110.70832990 that the drum won't turn. It will tumble only if I am holding the door switch off, the wife holds the start button, and I give the drum the Prizes Right turn. I took the drum off and started the motor. The motor turned over and ran pretty quickly. The rollers seem fine. What could the problem be?

    The belt looks to be pretty tight. I think it might be the motor is starting to weaken. I can't seem to find anything else wrong.

Is there a belt to turn the drum - if so it may need to be changed.

I have Kenmore 80 series dryer. The drum is not tumbling, but the belt is fine. It heats up and the vent still blows. Help!


Does it sound like the motor is starting? If the belt is good, but the drum won't spin, it sounds like the motor is gone or the drum has seized.

try holding the door switch with your finger and turning the drum with your hand after you push the start button , if this does not start it then you will have to replace the motor

My Kenmore Elite 110.62932100 won't tumble or heat up.


try the homes 240volt circuit breaker it may not show its tripped but one of the 2 phases can trip out, (just reset the breaker) and if this happens either the dryer drum motor will turn or the timer will run, but not both as these 2 components each use 1 of the 2 phases 120 volts to run,but the heating element needs both 120volt phases for 240volts for the heating element to heat,this is what your issue sounds like to me,hope this helps

I have a kenmore 80 series dryer that heats up and will not tumble. The model # is 66822692. Can you please help?


Open the back panel to access the belt. There is a motor to make the drum tumble by the belt. If the belt is not intact then motor turns but not the drum. If the belt is in good place then motor is not working. Check out the continuity of the motor, if there is then there is a problem with the circuitry. If there is not continuity from the motor terminals then the motor is burnt.

Will not tumble


The most obvious thing to check is the dryer belt. Unplug the dryer, and remove the back panel. Locate the motor and trace the delt from the motor pully to the drum and all the way around, back to the motor. If the belt is on and tight, the issue is probably with the motor.
