Belt is snapped

Drum cant turn , machine gets hot because the drum provides the airflow , thermal overload kicks in machine shuts down.

Resets when it has cooled.

Get someone to take the back off or tip it backwards and see if there is a belt laying on the chassis or the floor

Maytag neptune dryer heats but wont tumble


When you spin it by hand, is there resistance? Can you hear the motor turning? In fact, when you switch it on and it starts to heat, can you hear the motor turning, or is it silent?

Sounds like the belt is broken, in which case there will be little resistance.

If there is resistance, it may be the motor or circuitry controlling the motor.

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

Whirlpooldryer LEN2000PW1 when you shut the door turn the dial you hear a clicking sound and doesnt tumble. Belts not broke and you can turn motor manuelly.


This is a symptom of a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the motor and therefore cuts power to the motor when it blows and results in the motor not running. No dryer function works when the motor is not running. Remove the rear access panel and locate the thermal fuse. Replace it if found blown open including the cycling thermostat.

My hotpoint vtd20 tumble dryer will not start. I was using it then when I put a second load in and pressed start - nothing happened. The power light is on but no tumbling!


If you can hear the motor running but no tumble action then belt has come off.
Make sure the door is shut properly..
If it gets hot at the back, then you are difinately getting power to everything.
If you can hear a slight buzzing noise, then the motor is failing to start, probably due to a faulty start capacitor.
