My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

I turn my dryer on after cleaning the filter. out of the sudden i hear like a metal clanking noise, and form then on , it wont start, it makes a sound when i try to turn on, but it doesn't start


you got some loose change or something through the drum. You may have actually gotten something wedged around the rim of the drum . Unplug the dryer , open the door, and inspect around the rim of the drum. Try to turn the drum and see if it is free.

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.


Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

Dryer does not start. Drum does not turn by hand. Only makes a sound when switch is turned on.


If it is a sound like a loud hum, the motor is either fried or something is jammed preventing the drum from turning. It could be something like a sock. You just have to open things up and look around carefully, especially around the outside of the drum.

If the noise is a more normal one but the drum is not turning, check that the belt is around the drum and not broken. Some drums are just fairly hard to turn by hand, partcularly if the belt is still around the drum.

Drum in dryer not turning but still heat


Sounds like you need a new dryer belt, call sears for new belt. Install the new belt around the drum and to the motor located near the bottom of the machine.
