GE Dryer GFDN110ELWW hums loudly and won't start


The start capacitor is built into the motor and you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor if you should need it.

WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC DRYER.MODEL # LEQ9508PW1. DRYER IS NOT SPINNING. MOTOR IS HEATING AND RUNNING FINE. I OPENED TOP AND BELT IS ON BUT LOOSE. BELT IS NOT BROKEN JUST LOOSE. WHAT COULD THIS BE?


You will have to go farther and remove the drum.
I believe your problem is that the belt has slipped off of the motor, or has slipped off the idler arm with pulley brackett.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Dryer turns on - we hear the motor going - but the clothes do not tumble - the barrel isnt turning


Hi welcome to Fixya

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

Thank You For Useing Fixya
PLEASE RATE ME

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


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.

Turn it on and its not spining


take top off machine and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and continues to run then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part
