If the motor smell burnt it is going to burn up soon. Unfortunatly it is time to replace the motor if it is worth it. You may consider a new one. Once the motor goes you can guarante that something else will follow.

Won't Spin Drum


The problem could be a list of things . Let's start checking the belt , it coul be that the belt is broken or something is keeping it from doing its job ( a piece of clothing coul be stuck) due to the burned rubber smell you detected. It coul also be the electrical door switch and After checking the three first steps then comes the motor part lets hope is not . Good luck

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...


Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

Squeaky sound but still drying, Kenmore stack washer/dryer, 4 years old.


Typically, the dryer drum is driven by a motor and a large belt that wraps around the back of the dryer drum and is quided by 3 or 4 wheels on the front of the drum. I'm betting the sound is cyclical. If you want to go throught the trouble of pulling the dryer apart (and it's not all that bad) check the wheel to see if any are wobbly. You could also try a little shot of sewing machine oil on the wheel axels. (WD40 has a smell to it so I might not be inclined to use that.) If the sound goes away, plan on replacing the wheels.

My dryer stopped spinning and its making a terrible noise/smell


Sounds like you have a broken belt.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
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.
While you have the drum out, I would also 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 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.
The smell your smelling is probably from the heating coil not getting air over it to send to the drum to dry your clothes, this should go away after you replace the belt and get the blower to turn again.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

If the problem is not a broken belt then you have to motor exposed to do further testing, if the motor is ok, then check the start switch and the timer switch
Good luck,

Horrible noise and burning smell when dryer is on


Same thing happened to us, the noise is one of your wheel bearings are going bad, (they are just a small piece of plastic rollers) and the smell is your belt. The dryer is dismantled from the front. I figured out how to take my dryer apart from google. Also, you may need some help to pull out the drum wheel and pay attention to how it came out. I ordered parts from repairclinic.com and it was very inexpensive and the parts took 3 days to come to me ( I wouldn't pay for faster shipping).
Good luck, you won't believe how uncomplex your dryer really is.

Grinding noise from under tumbler


One of the retaining rings on the motor clamp/drum bearing assembly had probably broken, the machine must be taken apart to access to the motor/bearing assembly and fix the part.
The job should be done by a technician.

Using the machine in this condition can cause more damage to motor/ drum bearings.

Here is the diagram.

here you can buy the parts.
