How may belts on lg tromm dryer

The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

Kenmore elite front load dryer has power but won't turn on. It beeps once like OT is going to start but nothing

check to see if the belt broke,there's a switch on the belt pulley on some models,if the belt snaps from to large a load the pulley doesn't have any tension on it and the switch opens so the dryer won't run.when you put the belt back on the pulley sets the switch so power will go tough it again and the dryer will run,also check the door switch,if someone shut the door to hard and broke the switch the dryer won't run.these are the easy things to check without needing a meter.hopeit helps,if you're in mass. and need a tech you can call peter de's appliance 781-438-9442 very good techs

Power button broke gfdn240el1ww

There are two main pieces to the front panel for the GFDN240EL1WW dryer-- the plastic panel and the circuit board. The actual replacement part is: Control Panel WE19M1687. The panel can be purchased for from places like or or Amazon or even EBay, etc. for $100-$200+.

The power button is just a piece of plastic mounted to another piece of plastic; it is not electronic. When pushed, it presses against the circuit board, which then turns the unit on/off. When the power button breaks, it typically means the little plastic button has broken off from the plastic panel. Most likely, the problem is the mount point for the button and the button is actually re-usable.

A cheaper quick-fix is to:
  • Remove top screw from back of the front panel
  • Remove main front knob from the panel
  • Remove screw from behind the front knob
  • Grab both sides of the front panel and push/pull up to remove the panel
  • Disconnect the block connector (power) from the circuit board after removing the panel
  • Locate the power button and mounting position
  • Inspect to see if it looks like you can glue the button back into place
  • Buy a small tube of loctite Stik'n Seal Ultra Universal Adhesive
  • Put some Stik'n Seal on the button mounting point for the power button (be generous)
  • Press the button onto the mounting point and hold for a few minutes
  • Add more Stik'n Seal around the edges of the mounting point and the button mount after you have held the button in place long enough so that it sticks
  • Let the whole thing dry for several hours (instructions on the adhesive say 24hrs
  • If you are worried about the button staying seated while the adhesive sets, you can always try tape it into place
  • When dry, replace the front panel by reversing the steps above used to remove the panel: connect the power block, slide the panel back into place, replace the front screw and knob, replace the top screw in the back of the panel

Kenmore dryer does not have power

open your dryer door and turn the drum in any direction, if it turns real easy then it means that most likely your belt broke, and you have a safety switch on you dryer that cuts the power to the motor,

you can replace the belt

but most important , find out what made the belt go out, could be bad roller wheels, or bad pulley or just all of them..

Door switch broke

The drier will not operate without the door being secured for safety reasons. There is power running to the switch and once the door is shut and the lever,or the "spring" is pushed in it allows the power to turn on.Almost like a light switch. The door switch will have to be replaced. This is a very easy repair. The switch can be found at your nearest appliance store or online.

Dryer has power, buttons on front beep when touched, but dryer will not turn on when you hit the run button, and drum light has quit working, cannot seem to locate my users guide or fine one on-line to...

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Dryer won't start

Same thing happened to my same model. Pull out from wall. Remove lint filter. Take out two screws holding top to lint filter casing. Pry up top at the front (pops out of two plastic retaining dowels and is hinged on the back so you can tip the top up. Remove front panel by taking out two screw-bolts at top of backside of front panel and lift up -- careful to support drum as you do as the front part of the drum is supported by the flange built into the front panel. Check:

1) Is belt broken (the incredibly skinny belt that runs around the middle of the drum, not the rubbe track at the back of the drum). If belt is broke, replace. New belt at internet parts stores is about $10 bucks.

2) If belt is not broke, get down on belly with flashlight and find the spring-loaded wheel that keeps the belt snug against the motor pulley -- put the spring-loaded wheel and slip the belt off.

Now try to spin the motor pulley by hand. If it turns freely in both directions, it is probably good and the problem might be in the start switch (don't know how to test that).

If the motor pulley does NOT turn -- or is very hard to turn and binds -- the motor is dead. Probably the bearings burnt out (that's what happened to mine after only 4 years of light use). You have to remove the back panel to replace the motor, but it's a simple job if you know what a screwdriver and socket ratchet are for. New motor at internet parts stores is about $80 bucks.
