Whirlpool Dryer drum will not turn when turned on


cAN YOU HEAR IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING?
If it is, the belt is probably broken or has come off.
I have known of the 'bearing lubricator' to go dry and cause the drum to sieze. This lubricator is simply a small container that is filled with something like sawdust that is then saturated with oil.

When dryer starts the drum wont move..it is a Roper large capacity electric dryer non stackable


If the drum won't move but you can hear a motor running, the drive belt has probably slipped off of the drum or motor pulley or has broken. Try turning it by hand with the motor off and then turning the dryer on again.

Pushed dial, dryer would not start. Heating coil on, can feel the heat and hear ticking.


If the heating elemnts are coming on but the drum is not spining then the motor could be bad or the belt could be broken that turns the drum. The motor could also be on a thermal overload in this case unplug the dryer or turn off the circuit breaker for 15 minutes and let everything cool down. After turn the breaker back on or plug it back in and give it a try if you hear the motor running but the drum is not spinning then the belt is probably broken and will have to be replaced.

Dryer drum does not turn


If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning, the belt maybe slipping or broken.
See section 7 of this:
http://home.howstuffworks.com/how-to-repair-a-dryer.htm

If you cannot hear the motor running then the door switch is not engaged or the motor is disconnected or dead (not too likely).

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Hi welcome to Fixya

You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum .
The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD

Thank You For Useing Fixya
