If your trying to turn the drum from the inside, or by opening the top and trying to turn, there will be some resistance.

What are the symptoms of your problem? Does the drum not turn when the dryer is turned on (with or without clothes)?

If so -

1) the idler roller could be bad
2) The motor is bad

The motor is internally thermally protected and no thermal fuse is used outside of the motor. Only place a thermal fuse is used is to prevent overheating.

Provide more information to you problem.

The lower front panel is not removed to service this unit. All service is done from the top or rear.

The inside drum quit turning. is there a belt that turns this and if so how do I get to it. I had the top open but could not see anything. The drum spins if I manually spin it so I know it is not bound up...


if you cant see a belt about 1/4" wide around the drum, there will be a mark where the belt was on the drum before it broke,remove front panel and restring belt around the drum,then replace front drum piece that holds the drum in place and then string belt around idler and motor pulleys and replace front cover

Washer will nolt go in to spin after water is pump out...can get it to work if I look safty on.. and spin tub by hand and it will start to turn...


if you can hear the motor trying to start the drum spinning you might be able to do that. if your not hearing the motor trying to turn the drum, then there is something wrong in the timer switches. This timer switch is not all that difficult to replace if you get the proper and exact replacement part

Bosch dryer lights up when turn on nut drum does not spin


The drum spins around by the belt surrounding the parimeter of the drum. A tensioner is also part of this system. You may have a broken belt although the belt usually squeals before breaking so I think the tensioner is at fault. The top would have to be removed then the front panel next to gain access to these items

Kenmore 417.44102 is 5 yrs old. The other day, it started making a banging noise on final spin. I can manually turn the stainless tub, but do hear a grinding noise, as if the tub is rubbing against...


sounds like th bracket on the back of the basket has broken. just replaced mine and itwas abit ofa bear. teardown is all from the back and itis almost a complete teardown, remove back panel and top, remove struts on the lower drum assembly, remoive drive belt. the large drum assembly has a bunch of screws tht holdit together(heads aretoward the front of the waser) remove all of the lower screws, removeth springs from the top of the drum ssemblyand remove he srings. take out thescrews fron th top halfof the drum assembly. the back half should now comeout. remove the bolt holding te drive pully onto the drum assembly then th plastic drum assemblycan b removed from thebassket. the back of the basket has a bracket on it I bet itis broken. this is a 200 dolar part, (basket) and replacementis the reversal ofremoval. it is a difficult and somewhat time consuming repair butit was well worth it for me

Gas dryer gets hot but the drum doesn't turn. Broken belt?


open the door to the dryer and inside the rimof the door there is a switch, puch the switch in and with the oppisite hand puch the start button on the dryer. if the drum does not spin then you know its the belt. Pull Lint vent out if top mounted and remove the 2 screws, Between the top of dryer and the front panel, stick a putty knife roughly 3 inches from the side of dryer. There are locks that you will unlock with putty knife. once top is removed at top corners of front panel inside you will find 1 swcrew on each corner, and pull off front panel, slip new belt in and start putting things back together.

when you say the drum wont spin even manually. Do you mean the drum is too stiff to turn by hand? If so the bearings may have seized up solid. If the drum is free to turn by hand, the pump may be blocked, or burned out & not allowing the water out. If so the circiut wont allow the machine to spin. If thats the case, unblock or replace the pump
