All power is good, heats up but drum won't turn. Hear humming noise after pushing start button. Relaced motor,thermal fuse and thermistor. Still nothing. Checked door switch. Any other suggestions?

When you replaced the motor, did you also replace the belt? If you had not said that you already replaced the motor, I would have suggested that the belt was broken.

My Maytag dryer will not not turn the drum. The red light (more or less dry time sensor light) come on. I relaced the door switch. I do not get a beep. What else could be wrong? MDE6000AYW

Hi godinae...
If you hear you motor running then it sounds like you have a broken drum will need to replace it or have it replaced.
If you do not hear the motor running then it could be the motor or control panel if you have one.

One of the belts have gone and need to know how to relace it

If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Remove the lint filter, and the two screws that hold the lint filter housing to
the top of the lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer.Most lids clip on to the base of the machine,
some slide off.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove
the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket
with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Pay attention to the route of the belt,this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum
not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum
rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3
in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting
noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots
on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

KENMORE SERIES 80 DRYER..The Tensioner use it or not and how?

To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...

The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).

If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
Good luck!

Dryer belt broke on my kenmore series 80

With the front cabinet panel off, place the drum against the back and on the rear rollers. The roller on the right will sometimes move toward the rear so reach from underneath and pull it forward. The rollers should sit in the groove. The drum will tilt forward but shouldn't fall off. Route the belt around drum, pulley and motor. Tilt the drum back and support it while placing the front panel back onto it's hooks. With the front panel on (don't screw it on yet), rotate the drum by hand to make sure the seal is not kinked and the belt won't slide off the pulley or motor. If all is well screw in the front panel and re-assemble the rest.

A/c belt relacement

DO this with a COLD engine, so you do not burned by a hot engine...Loosen the 14 millimeter nut on the idler/tensioner pulleythat the AC belt rides on. Do NOT remove the nut, or the pulley will fall off. Then loosen the long 12 millimeter bolt, which will remove tension, and will let the pulley extend. Remove the old belt. Spin the tensioner pulley with your hand, make sure that it spins free & is not noisy, Fit the new belt, and tighten the 12 millimeter bolt until the pulley retracts,and tightens the belt. Finally, retighten the 14 millimeter nut.
