Wheel that turns the drum has come off. How do I fix it and where does it go?


Every dryer I ever worked on had a belt that turned the drum. There is a motor with a pulley, a spring loaded idler pulley, and a belt. Look around for a broken belt and replace it, if it is broken. It might have just slipped off the idler pulley. If it has slipped off, re-install it the way it goes. Look in your owners manual for a belt diagram for your dryer. Sometimes, they are pasted on the inside of the dryer case. I hope this helps. Garcuda

Clothes dryer tub does not turn


make this test and fix it. Merry Christmas
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
Belt

Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. If you hear the motor running but it does not tumble it is most likely the belt.

Motor

If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out.

Remove the belt.

Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

There was a pulley at least thats what it looks like laying on the bottom of my dryer how do I fix it to make my dryer spin


hello berna.... that pulley is the idler pulley which keeps tension on the belt which turns the dryer drum. It apparently came unattached or in some cases unbolted. It will have to be put back in position. The dryer belt may also be broken or worn. consiter replacing both the belt and the idler pulley. Joe

Asko T721 dryer. Support rollers started to fall to bits (dryer making bumping sound as it rotated) so I bought a new set and replaced them. Not a single electrical connection was removed bar the door...


  • If you took the drum out and took the belt off you may have put the belt on wrong as there is a switch under the drive or idler pulley that must be pushed on from the pressure of the belt on the pulley. Also go and make sure both breakers are ok in the breaker box as it runs on a 220 volt sys. and if one is tripped this type of thing can occur.
  • Good luck and please rate me if this helped! thanks again for choosing fixya

Drum does not turn


Hello,
Here are a few things to check. If you don't feel comfortable performing these check, please have a repair person come in and check it.

* Broken belt. Open dryer and see if belt is still wrapped around the drum. Pull on the belt to make sure it's not just hanging there. Inspect belt condition. Do not apply spray adhesive in this case: replace the belt. If belt is broken, look for contributing causes for failure such as worn drum rollers, damaged felt kit, or stiff idler roller.

* Motor burned out. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer. If motor runs but is noisy and motor is unable to turn the drum when the drum belt is threaded back on the motor pulley, then replace the motor.

* Thermal fuse is open. Run continuity test.

Hope this helps.

My dryer is not as hot and taking much longer to dry the clothes. How do I fix this. I clean the lint trap after every load. I have a ge profile dryer about 5-6 years old.


Three main possibilities:

Either lint is clogging the airflow or a fuse is popped from overheating, or the heating element is broken..

You have to open up and clean out no matter what.

Unplug the unit.
Remove the lint screen and the two screws at the lint slide.
Use a putty knife to release and pry up the clips which hold down the top cover, tilt up the top cover.
Remove the two screws near the top which secure the front cover, tilt out and lift off of the two clips at bottom.
Release the belt tensioner and remove the drum.
Now you can completely vacuum out the entire cabinet. I know some persons who take a pressure washer to it (the motor seems to tolerate the wet treatment).
Remove the rear cover by removing the screws.
On the left (as you look at the rear) you will see a duct leading to the lint screen. Remove the screws and wiring harness (mark the wires). Lift it away and you will see the blower fan. It is invariably loaded with crud, coins, paperclips etc. Clean it out. If you must remove it turn it clockwise as a wrench holds the motor shaft stationary (there is a flat spot near the belt pulley).
Check the heating element. It should not be broken and read "closed" on an ohmmeter.
Clean all and reassemble after you have replaced any fuses.

Fuses should read "closed" or zero ohms. Some person test for bad fuses by temporarily connecting the two wires and then running the unit. If it only gets hot when you do this you should DEFINITELY replace the fuse.
