That's an interesting one. Does the motor run but does not turn drum? If the motor is running but the drum is not turning then there is a possibility that the belt is not attached to the idler pulley correctly. Go HERE to see video on belt install. I have also ran into the screws that hold the tumblers in the tub loose and making noise. Check to make sure there are no screws sticking out of the tub. Contact me at http://www.apcoplus.com/contact.php if you need more assistance or just comment back on FIXYA..

    Thank you for the suggestion. I did check the drum and nothing seems to stopping the belt. The one thing that does not seem right is the piece at the end of the motor that drived the belt is loose. It just spins freely. To me that is wrong. Is that a part I can replace or is that a whole new motor.
    Thank you

Dryer won't spin


Was the belt shredded ( normal wear & tear ) or burnt through which could be a drum bearing or support problem .What does the drum feel like when you turn it by hand is it grinding & lump ? The fact that the motor runs with no load could by the start device faulty these are reasonably cheap to replace this is the small cylinder attached to the side of the motor with two wire connections . if your motor has not got one of these then its the start windings in the motor

How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Drum won't spin on it's own but spins freely by hand.Was slow to start spinng before. Took front off but can not see belt at all, if it has one?


drive belt is normally accessed from the rear of the machine or if sealed rear from underneath(bottom) the belt is normally easier to get off the drive motor pulley first . Sounds like your belt is either already broken or has come away from drive unit or drum .

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.

Dryer doesn;t spin


Sounds like the belt has broken. The terrible noise was probably the belt slipping until it gained traction.
