Remove the plug to be safe. Look around the top cover, find the screws that hold it, remove them, lift the lid and see if the drive belt has snapped. There maybe an access panel on the rear whereby you can see the belt?
When you call your local appliance shop have all the details to hand from the plate on the rear.
If the dryer has a belt fitted it may have come off or snapped, remove the lid or look underneath and you may see a broken belt. If not belt driven the brushes in the motor may need replacing if they ahve worn.
Check your drive belt which is located around the outside of the drum. The "hummmm" you hear sounds like the motor running. Normaly this motor provides the power to the belt which surrounds the outer surface of the drum (where u put the cloths)........ the belt wraps around the outside of the drum, then around a small pully mounted on the shaft of an electrical motor normally located just below the drum on the inside of the outer enclosure. This motor will be mounted to the the dryer's frame by a mounting plate. This motor mounting plate will pivot (like a hinge)..... it will also have an extension spring hooked to it which provides tension to the drive belt when properly looped around the pulley on the drive motor. When the belt breaks or snaps....... the drum stops spinning..... however the drive motor still runs. Thats the noise you hear! Diss-assemble outer sheet metal providing access to drive belt and replace with correct belt recommended for your model dryer. Caution should be used during repair........ ALWAYS UNPLUG POWER CORD PRIOR TO SERVICING ALL/ANY APPLIANCE's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sounds like your belt has come off or snapped. Remove the back panel and look to see if the belt is snapped. If there is no panel to remove then take the lid off and look at the back to see if the belt is off, if it is it should be underneath the machine. Hope this helps
Yes it will probably be the belt that has snapped, afraid they can be quite a job to replace as you have to take the drum out of the appliance to get the new belt around the drum. Although it also could be your motor if this has failed it may make a nois but not have th power to turn the drum.
You can open the appliance up by using flat head screwdriver at either end of the lid pushing it into the gap between the frame and the lid and prising it upwards and the top will pop up and you will then be able to see if the belt has snapped
First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the
motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has
broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the
front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the
corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the
front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other
clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side
holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of
the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it
away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide
the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put
the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on
guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the
panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt
tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring
tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.
You may want to get some assistance here. Purchase a belt from an appliance store and your help put it on. It is not hard and should not take more than 30 minutes. Take the old belt with you and the model number so it can be matched up.
The lid or top part of the dry is just snapped together with clips. All you do is pry up on the lid like a hood on a car. it will pop free and tadah, theres your belt. You do need to look at the rollers for something on them, The thump is more than likely coming from the rollers .
Hope this helps
