Question about Whirlpool LER7646E Dryer
My Whirlpool electric dryer (LER7656DQ1) doesn't tumble. The motor will hum for 15-20 seconds and then shut off. About every 5 minutes, it tries again. After 4 or 5 attemps, the drum begins tumbling and dries my clothes. Does this sound like a belt problem, and if so, how do I get into the dryer to check it.
Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
