Hi, is the belt slipping with every wash or just sometimes? There could be a number of things causing it, I suggest you check out the manual for the troubleshooter. There is a myriad of sites that provide them like this one Maytag Neptune Washer manual. Hope this will help ;)

Drum wont go around or spin its not the belt as its still on


Try turning the drum by hand to see if it is not the bearings that have siezed, If the drum turns see if the belt is not too slack and is slipping. with the back removed and the motor running, watch the operation and see if you can detect the problem, like a loose pulley or slipping clutch etc.

Dryer just hums when i start--tub does not turn.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.

Tumble will not turn the belt was off but now put it back on still not turning altho motor at bottom is


if the motor is running, the belt is on but the drum is not turning then either the belt is slack and slipping, or the drum is jammed. possibly and item of clothing is stuck between inner and outer drums. remove belt and turn drum pulley, it should turn easily.

Washer won't spin. Belt is slipping. Tub is stuck.


The belt sounds worn out since its slipping. Change it out. Its cheap fix.

The drum brake does just what is sounds like. brakes the drum. For instance when u open the lid during a cycle and everything stops thats the drum engaging and stops the movement of teh drum. If the brake is malfunctioning two things will happen, you open the lid (assuming the safety switch is still good) or the drum will not spin at all.

KENMORE DRYER MOD# LEQ9858LWO WILL NOT TURN BUT HEATS


If you hear a humming, then it is probably a broken or slipped belt from the motor to the drum. There is usually a pully on the shaft of the motor, a tensioner pully on a spring, and a groove on the back of the drum that the belt rides in. If this belt breaks or comes off track, the motor will still spin but the drum won't.

You will probably need to take the front or back off of the dryer (varies by model) to expose a view of the belt, and once you do this, it will be easier to see if the motor is turning or the belt has broken or slipped.

If the belt has slipped, be sure to inspect it for wear, and replace it if worn. Otherwise, it will slip again and you'll have to repeat the process.

Feels like it is engaged when disingaged


Normally the belt should be slipping around the drum if the pilot is disengaged,sometimes the belt does not slip smooth due to the conditio of the belt or dirt,grease or oil on the drum inside ,take the unit apart ,check for belt condition,exessive belt tension ,if necessary belt tension can be adjusted on the rear of the backplate.

dryer won't run, but hot air blow and humming when turned on
Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt. It will take care of your problem

When I try and start my ge dbb3300eaoww dryer it buzzes as if it wants to start if I spin it with my hand it will work. I put a new belt on it and it does the same thing.
Motor start switch is bad. This is typically replaceable with out replacing the motor.
Will take care of the problem.


My drum will sometimes stop turning in the middle of a cycle, and the motor just hums. I pause the dryer, open the door, rotate the drum, unplug and plug the electrical, and then it will usually complete the cycle. Does that mean the belt is "occasionally" slipping? How do I check this?
Replace the belt. It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time. This will take care of the problem.
