When you open the door you will see two philps head screws on each side. Two of the screws hold the door on. Remove the 4 screws and the front comes off.

Drum occasionally will not turn unless manually turned a few times before start; can here a thud each time manually turned.


I beleive the start capacitor is faulty & it has dropped away from where it's supposed to mount inside,the capacitor is probably dangling down,hanging by it's wires & banging on the drum as it rotates.The start capasitor gives the motor it's first kick start to get goin & it's not working that's why you have to help by turning the drum.

Dryer wont start. Seems like the motor is jammed. Drum rotates by hand, belt is ok, rollers ok. electrical smell when I tried to start. Automatic shut off/breaker kicked the switch, disabling it...


if you can move the drum by hand you have a bad motor,when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?when i clean them i blow off the motor,all kinds of junk blows off the motor even though it looks clean,it over heats the motor,also overloading will kill it,try popping the top on each side in the front,if the filter is on top remove the two phillips screws on the top panel in front of the filter,once you pop the top you'll see two 5/16 inch screws one on each side around four inches from the top,remove them,take off the door switch wires and then under the door section remove the springs and the other two screws one on each side and remove the front panel,whatch out for the door,you just removed the tention springs so it will pop open and unplug the dryer before you do this,remove the belt and take out the drum,i'm not sure what model you have,if you can't figure out how to remove the motor send the model number and i can help you to get the motor out,it's not that hard in kenmore dryers

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer that buzzes when I turn it on and gets hot, but does not rotate.


The problem you describe sounds like a broken belt. The steps below outline how to check for that and disassemble if necessary.

Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Check for belt on drum half way back on the drum running from left to right. If belt is missing or broken replace with part number 341241 later in this process.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16" hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Rotate front panel to right to get it out of the way watching to ensure wiring is not damaged.

Place new belt over drum groove side down if old one was broken. Check white idler pulley for free rotation before installing in holes of floor under motor pulley. Replace with part number 691366 if rotation of pulley is not free or if it appears worn. Loop belt with ribs inward and pass through the open space in the idler arm below pulley then pass loop over motor pulley rib side down. The configuration at the motor should now look like the Whirlpool model in the image below:

http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

Grasp front edge of dryer drum and rotate counterclockwise slowly to align idler and motor pulley and to remove any twists in the belt.

Reverse disassembly process to re-assemble. Good Luck

Desthe dryer warms but it doesn't rotate


is this with a cycle started or not? if no cycle started and it warms then part of the element is grounded to the frame. (120v to ground) or if cycle will not start then first check your thermal fuse (in rear with two blue wires), and still may have a element problem because the motor contains a centrifugal switch to make sure element does not operate with out motor running. also check for a lot of lint build up on motor, possibly interfering with switch on connection box.
