Question about Whirlpool Dryers

Whirlpool dryer won't spin

My dryer won't spin. I have taken off the top and the belt seems fine. I have opened the back but that doesn't make much sense to me. I have reset the circuit. When I turn it on it heats hum and makes a humming and clicking noise

Most dyers after you pull the top up, the front should just lift a little and it should come loose, sounds like you may have the belt intact, but the motor is not conected to the belt.

Whirlpool wed5840sw0 heats up but won't spin.


If the machine starts with accepting water to the desired level and then not moving forward , it can be related to failure of the motor or the controller unit. check voltage to motor at the wash/spin cycle and if this is absent , the fault is within the processor

My dryer won't start. When i activate the start switch I hear a hum like the motor is bound up.. I opened the top and the drum is not stuck and the belt seems in good shape. The unit is about 4 years...


check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

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
