Does not spin/tumble

Our 86870100 model Kenmore Clothes Dryer does not spin...It turns on and throws heat, but the tumbler does not tumble...I doubt I am using the right words, but I hope you know what I mean. Please help me out!!

    It didn't really squeal... The other day, it was running fine and then I went to check on the clothes, and they were still damp slightly. So, I ran it again, but noticed it didn't spin...I'm figuring it was the belt snapping, but I can't find a how-to guide anywhere online that shows me what it needs to look like! :(



    Thanks for all the help!

Kenmore Elite Oasis ST electric dryer does not heat


You need to replace the heating coil that is usually the problem when you get air and and the tumbler is moving but no drying you can also check the lint catcher and clear out your dryer outgoing vent remove the hose check the dryer vent where the vent hose is connected and the vent going outside the house before changing the heating coil .

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Just moved, dryer won't tumble with a load. Error code PF


Did it get tipped in the move? I don't know about the specific model of Maytag, but on my old Kenmore the belt that ran the drum also had a wheel and kind of like a pulley that it had to seated on in order for the belt to stay centered on the drum and turn properly.I don't know how you get the shell off the front to get at the drum, the Kenmore had screws that you had to take out and lift the control panel off and then back to get at the inside. Sorry

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...


Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
Regards,

Kenmore heavy duty dryer


You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.
