Stackable dryer wont heat

Well if it still tumbles the fuse is fine, most likely the element is broken. To get into the machine you remove the top (unplug it first) then drop the splashplate between (washer and dryer). Next remove the controls. They have quick connects. Get the front off the dryer and then remove the drum. Note: an access hatch behind the dryer will allow you to release the belt from the idler. Suggestion: take a photo of how things come off with your phone so you can see how it all goes back. DRYER REPAIR PHOTOS

My dryer heats up but does not tumble. I replaced

Sounds like worn tub back bearing.
take the belt off and spin the tub by hand to see if it is binding.
check that the pulley isnt loose on the tub back and also the motor pulley, feel if the motor spins free.
Finally check the tub itself for objects poking through or lodged in the outer tank.
Good luck

Whirlpool dryer froze and wont tumble just makes noise where try

Hi, This dryser only has 1 belt. When you chacked the belt, was the belt located in the middle of the drum?
This model has an idler pulley that is no longer being used. They have went back to the roller style idler which is easier on the belt.
Raise the top and then remove the 2 screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the front cabinet and locate the idler next to the motor pulley. Look at the belt while you have the front off and see if there is any bad spots in it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer wont turn

Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!

This does sound like the belt has broken. Is the Defy autodryer the one that made the sound and then stopped tumbling?
