The dry heats up great but the drum does not turn. Is the alot to fix and is it worth the money to fix this dryer
Good Morning, If the drum will not turn you may have a broken belt or one that's getting to the point of breaking. You can unplug the unit or turn the breaker off and remove the back. This will give you a view of the drum and belt. You can the plug it in being careful not to touch the wiring and see if the motor is turning or you will see the belt as it is rapped around the drum. If the motor pulley is not turning with the belt on, the motor is faulty. If it is turning and the belt is broke or having a rough time moving the tub it more then likey could be the belt, if it is not broke. If you determine that the motor isn't turning, then it may not be worth the $ to replace with labor + Parts. If it is the broken belt only, it may be worth the cost, you can call around.Take into consideration the age of this dryer also. I Sincerely hope this has given you some direction to follow.
