Question about Dryers
Power is OK Can turn drum backwards but to turn forward is very difficult
Dryer belt appears OK
This problem started part way through a Cycle.
Your motor is freezing up. That is why you can turn it backwards but not forwards. Look back there at the motor and see if there is just a problem with the pulley first. Also check the wheels located on the drum and see that they spin okay. If all that is okay though you have a motor problem. It's an expensive repair if it's your motor. Look for a refurbished one as it will be a lot cheaper then a new motor. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck. Also let me know if this was helpful to you.
