Does it produce heat to dry the clothes? If it does it sounds like the motor may have burned out or disconnected, best to call someone out

Old kenmore dryer, drum won't turn


Could have the motor frozen, (armature,bearings,etc) causing an overload on the circuit. Can you physicly move the drum by reaching in and turning it?

My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

Most dryers have a belt that goes around the drum attached to a spring pulley and the motor pulley, if the belt breaks. the drum will not spin. and most dryers also have a safety switch in between the door and the dryer, if this switch is bad,will not let the drum turn. most dryers have a vented slot in the rear of the machine at the bottom, if you remove this vent you should be able to see how the motor moves the drum. good luck!
