WHEN YOU START MACHINE DOES THE MOTOR RUN OR DO YOU JUST GET A HUM?IF MOTOR RUNS THEN BELT IS BROKEN.REMOVE SCREWS AT LINT FILTER AND POP UP TOP ,SHOULD SEE BELT IN MIDDLE OF DRUM..IF IT JUST HUMS REACH IN AND TURN THE DRUM 1 REVOLUTION CLOCKWISE AND RESTART.IF IT STARTS MOTOR IS GOING BAD.HOPE THIS HELPS .PLEASE RATE MY RESPONSE :)
You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum . The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD
Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
stand that baby up!!! acess is from front, try removeig 2 screws from under lint filter and then pop top with screw driver lean top back.. youll see the tub and belt(if not broken right there),no belt??? order a 341241 whirlpool dryer belt. 2 5/16screws on either side of iside facade remoivefront caver, disconnect door switch and remove front panel. belt slips over drum , you need to reset tension pulley and wrap around motor shaft. .
