Hello there and welcome to fixya The most common problem with these are the motor or the motor bearings or rollers and next is clothes getting caught between the drumb and the shell of the unit Here is some troubleshooting help for you listed below MotorIf the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:Remove the belt.Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If
the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the
blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If
the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt
removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt
removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes
drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move,
correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the
dryer and try it again.If
the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt
removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace
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.
it could be the extra weight on the motor and the motor is bad,try this,open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other hand and have someone push the start button,if it runs and most of the time it does because you're helping it along you need a new motor.one more thing,if the filter is in front,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and spin the drum,if the blower wheel moves with the drum you have a bad motor,if it doesn't you have something stuck in the blower wheel and it jams up the motor because it's attached to the motor shaft.
Dryers have a belt that turns the drum, I think dryer belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
---Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
---You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
---Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find
Stuck drum or failing motor. Try turning the drum by hand. It should move fairly effortless in one of the directions. If it does - the problem is in the motor. If it does not rotate - check if something is stuck between the drum and rear or front panel. Good luck Motor part number is 31001589. Replacing it is fairly hard for untrained.
The belt may look fine, but if the motor is spinning, then the belt isn't transferring the motion to the drum.
First, make sure you can turn the drum by hand. Turn off the power. Reach inside the drum, grab the opposite sides and turn. If it moves more than a few inches, then it isn't the drum that's stuck. Possibly the belt tensioner has slackened and needs to be adjusted.
