I can only guess at this since I can't see the dryer but I had a similar problem once. The dryer drum is turned by a large rubber belt that is driven by a spring loaded pulley sort of thing .If you take the back off of the dryer you should be able to see this . The belt may be off of the pulley and not getting enough pressure on the drum or the spring may be broken. I would not recomend doing this yourself unless you feel comfortable working on this sort of thing. Disconnect power source first and then maybe reconnect after you have the back off and hands are clear so you can see what is happening. Before reconnecting power try feeling how much tension is on the belt and you may be able to determine the reason for not having enough tension. Good Luck!

Dyer will turn on there is power at the source. When start is push nothing happen

Pull out the dryer and unplug . Remove the back cabinet panel , and on the blower housing , you'll see a 1" long white piece ( thermal fuse ) . The part number for this piece is 3392519 . You can jump these 2 wire together and start the dryer , to verify this is the problem .

How do I pop the top of the Maytag Dryer?

most dryers have 4 spring clips on the top 2 at the front l&r and 2 near the back usually in front of the console that houses your timer and controls I also use a flat bar known as a stanley wonder bar is similar to a crow bar but is perfectly flat with a curve in it.A good heavy screw driver with a long shank works well use a piece of chipboard or printer paper to avoid scratches

We have the hotpoint washer/dryer wdl540 but cannot get the dryer to work, all the clothes come out steamed! we'r not overloading the machine and have tried different combinations but still it wont dry -...

The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.

Clothes dryer is squealing when turned on. suspect drum bearing. looking for a diagram for dismantling can i take the top off without removing the back panel( GE 5 cycle dryer)

You dont need a bearing you need the DRYER DRUM SLIDE Part number AP2041815 which is under $6.50 a piece. Take the top of the dryer off and look on the front of the drum. Some GE dryers have 2 and some have 4.Go to it item 316 they also have a diaphram.

Roper rex5634pqo wont heat. Need diagram. dont know location of components.

i think this unit has a lint filter that pulls out the top of the unit. if so then your heating element is in the back and has 2 red wires going to it at the bottom of the element. unplug the unit and remove the element and check it to see if it is broke. the element needs to be in one piece.
if it is good, then check the thermostats that are mounted on the side of the element housing. one at the top and one right by the lower wiring. the thermostats are available in a package with both and those are most likely what is wrong.

What does a thermal fuse look like

the fuse is a small plastic piece with only 2 wirs connected to it and it will be behind the back cover or the ones that the back dont come off, it is inside the lower panel in front ,,, check your break ,,,, it may have trip it even if it dont look or feel like it.
