Yes it could be the problem. Its faily easy to do, just take the front panel off. unscrew to dryer vent and sometimes the control panel. Then pop the top up and the front panel comes off. its all right in front of ya from there.

I have Kenmore electric dryer. When I start dryer the drum spins for couple of cycles and stops. I found out that all rollers, and pully are free to rotate but motor is too hard to turn. So I replaced


if it shuts down and then comes back on, there may be a loose wire in the connector, when the connections are weak, wires overheat, and overload protection kicks in. just an idea for you.

Frigidaire dryer gallery series wont spin


Hello Hannah Kottman - Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Dryer wont start, makes humming noise and thats all


sounds like you have abad motor,try spinning the drum by hand,if it moves most likely it's the motor,or the belt broke and is jammed in the motor stopping it from spinning,or if it's hard to turn something could be stuck in the blower wheel but it's the motor making the noise.you need to get in there and check it out.the motors are easy to change out on a kenmore dryer,also next time send the model number.let me know what you find

Dryer drum won't spin/tumble clothes


Chances are it's a broken belt. If you hear the sound of the motor running and your dryer is heating, there's nothing else but the belt.

Changing the belt yourself is pretty easy if you can use a screwdriver and have a little mechanical ability. The new belt is around $20, and you'll save big if you don't call a service person to do it for you. A good site with a step-by-step illustrated procedure for changing the belt is here. They also sell parts, or you can find the belt locally at any appliance parts store.

I guess you already fixed it, sorry for the last replay,

however, if the belt did not spin that means that either the belt is slipped out, the motor had blown, or there is a problem with the drum bearing. Usually you need a technician to fix this.

Regards.
