Dryer not spinning

Our kenmore gas dryer would run all of the time...even when the door was opened. Now it stopped working. It makes a little noise but the tub doesn't spin at all now.

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

Dryer drum won't spin


the front control panel has 2 little screws on the 2 top corners remove them, then pry off the entire control panel (very careful ) once the panel is off remove 4 screws that hold the front to the body, then open the door and remove the 2 screws in front next to the lint filter, slowly remove the front door assembly starting from top, disconnect the door switch, then lift it off the front hooks and the door is out, then remove the front 4 screws from the front bearing and remove, so will gain access to the blower housing, good luck

Makes a squeaking noise when it spins


it's either a roller or the belt pulley,there's a belt kit you can buy that has a belt rollers and pulley,it's cheaper to buy it like that and has everything you'll need,next time send the model number,it will start with 110. or 417. and eight numbers after the dot,it's located around the door opening where you put the clothes into the dryer,NOT ON THE DOOR
