Drum not turning


unfortunately your motor is locked up. Try this, with the door open depress the door switch and have some one push the start button while you turn the drum by hand if it starts then you'll know the start winding on the motor is failing

Dryer will engage with "start" button but will not operate when "start" button is disengaged.


So this sounds like it will start when the start button is pushed but will not stay running after the start button is released.

I.e. press start and drum turns

Leg go of the start button drum stops.

This would be a bad motor switch. Pressing start engages the start winding but once started the motor is not kicking the switch to run.

In some cases the broken belt safety switch can cause this if the drive belt is stretched or has been in use for a long time and worn.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up
