    The blower is on- but it won't turn. It happens occasionally. When I had a service guy out- It ran when it had not been running earlier on.

Open the top, pry up be careful not to chip your finish. It is hinged in the rear.
Is thr a wear spot around the drum?
It probably is belt drive

I have a 5 yr old GE Harmony Dryer and it sometimes does not turn the drum. I'd say about 2/3's of the time it operates totally normally, but the other times the drum doesn't turn and you have to open the...


Unfortunately your motor is bad.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but if you want to attempt it I can walk you through it.
There should be a 5 YEARS warranty on the motor, so you might consider a repairman. Make sure they are GE certified and there will be no cost to you for the motor. The labor, however, may be up to you and could be expensive.

I'm willing to assist you on doing it yourself, if you'd like.
The switch your talking about is a centrifugal switch inside the motor. Once the motor turns to a specific RPM, it makes and keeps the motor going until the timer turns it off or the door is opened. But it is the motor itself which starts the spinning. But the motor is not doing it's job so the C switch doesn't come into play.

The dryer is getting power but the barrel isnt turning


If motor runs but no tumble, belt is broken. It broke due to overloading, old age, or bound up tension pulley or drum support wheels. You have to check all of these when replacing belt. Belt is fairly cheap.

Drum turns but makes a banging and metal grinding sound


The felt bearing on the front of the drum is worn out. Immediately stop running the dryer, and replace the plastic drum inserts and put in a new felt bearing before machine damage happens (if it hasn't already). While there, grease the rear bearing and the idler pulley bearing. Check the belt too. Good luck.

I turn the dryer on and the drum will not turn.


It sounds like the belt that turns the drum is loose or worn out and needs to be replaced. Another problem is that the motor is on the way out. Check the belt first.

Dryers drum is not spining


I was having a similar problem but my dryer was about 5 years old. There are a couple of rubbery, sticky belts that wrap around the dryer drum. One of mine had come off the drum and was balled up, wedged between the drum and the dryer wall. It wanted to spin, but this "belt" was keeping it from doing so. I'm not sure why or how it happened, but I removed the portion that was gummed up and now it works fine.
