Drum doesnt turn when turned on, can hear power goes to motor. Hve checked the belt and it is attached and can be maually turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A PULLY ON THE MOTOR SLIPPING IF YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR RUNNING, BUT THE DRUM DOES NOT TURN. IF NOT THE PULLY, THEN THE BELT MAY BE SLIPPING IN THE PULLY, BUT THE PULLY IS TURNING. THEN A NEW BELT IS NEEDED. IN EITHER CASE YOU WILL NEED TO ACCESS THE MOTOR AREA TO SEE WHATS HAPPENING. MOTOR COULD BE NOT RUNNING, EVEN THOUGH YOU HEAR A HUM IN IT. BUT, MOTORS NORMALLY RUN LONGER THEN THE LIFE OF THE DRYER.

The belt for the dryer is not in place and the dryer is not longer spinning. how would i fix that? There is also a piece with a wheel on it that i cannot figure out where it goes but looks as though it is...


Look up "Tension Pully & Belt Diagram" on internet for your dryer on google or Dogpile. You should be able to find how to
put the Tension Pully back where it belongs & how to thread the belt through it and back on to the motor drive shaft. Check different sites for the right picture for your dryer. Here's a picture to get you started. Good luck,

How to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer


It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

Gas Dryer turns off Heat after 10 min running


the best way is to take off front and the top, remove the belt from the pully and motor,make sure door is closed and drum removed. Start the dryer and allow to run looking and listening it could just be glogged in the blower section,. If it still stops it's the motor,if not its iethieg glogged our the pullies belt and tensioner need replacing if its a whirlpool, it could also be a back bering....

Replaced idle pulley but drum wont spin when clothes are in it


Ok, when you removed the front cover to gain access to the idler pully, did you make sure that the drum didnt slip off one of the two roller wheels in the bottom rear of the dryer. If you get one of those roller wheels jammed and not in the track right, they will jam up. Look down at the bottom, grab the rollers, and pull them forward to be sure they are in the groove of the drum. Also, are you sure you relooped the belt correctly back around the idler pully? The best way to loop the belt is to place the idler pully in the correct position, then drop the belt down in front of it, loop the belt under the idler pully, push it back to tension everything, then take the loop and go over the motor pully (should be pretty tight). See if one of those solutions will help. Also be sure that you are properly getting the drum in the right position over the front seal (front should go on pretty easily, if not, reach your hand in the door, and lift up on the drum to center). Thanks and good luck!!!!
