Does the motor run? If it does may be a broken drum belt. If it don't Be sure you have power the the dryer. Check it where the power cord hooks to the dryer. Should have 110 volts to each of the outside terminals from the center terminal & 220 from one outside terminal to to the other outside terminal.Check the door switch, check with ohm meter or use a jumper wire to bypass it. Check the thermal fuse. Could be a bad motor or timer. Also you could check if the motor will run with the drum belt off. Also you could check if you are getting voltage to the motor with the timer set to run. Hope this helps

Dryer won't spin


Was the belt shredded ( normal wear & tear ) or burnt through which could be a drum bearing or support problem .What does the drum feel like when you turn it by hand is it grinding & lump ? The fact that the motor runs with no load could by the start device faulty these are reasonably cheap to replace this is the small cylinder attached to the side of the motor with two wire connections . if your motor has not got one of these then its the start windings in the motor

How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.
