Does not tumble

My new dryer ( less than two months old ) made a clunk noise and now it does not tumble, the lights on the controls come on... but no tumbling.

    The belt broke, it was aligned in the wrong spot on the outside of the drum and was getting hung on the screws that hold the tumbling vanes in place on the interior of the drum.
    Now that we replaced the belt it's performance is excellent, before it was very poor. So the factory's initial placement of the belt was incorrect, causing it to hang and burn rubber until it broke.

Whirlpool dryer awz 121 only tumbles counter clockwise. This is a dryer that briefly reverses direction, so the only tumbling is when it reverses. The rest of the time, the dryer makes a noise but d


You may want to contact a professional that will have the diagrams for your machine online. there are some here or you can go to another site. like (Just answer.) Be more specific about your problem. It can be fixed . There's no worries.

Are you saying that it does not heat up either ?In addition with not tumbling clockwise ?

Disconnect the dryer first. You can remove the top and front of the dryer to check to see what is happening. If it does not heat . You may need to replace the temperature control relay. If that does not work , the heating elements themselves may need to be replaced.

For the tumbling problem, they also have relay switches that go out.
BUT, if it is tumbling to one side and keeps tumbling then that will probably be enough to dry your clothes. As long as it is not too heavily loaded.

It sounds like it is the belt. When the dryer heats up the belt expands a little and when it gets wore out, the tensioner doesn't have enough spring to keep it tight. It might work a little when it's cold before the belt expands.
This belt should work for your dryer but verify the length.

Here is a helpful Youtube video on how to do the repair.

Here is a link to the Service Manual

The bottom of this link shows some typical ways a belt runs past a tension wheel and links for your dryer. If you replace yours I would recommend taking a couple pictures before removing the old one so you can refer to them when installing the new one.

Makes noise does nothing 2 months old


still got the reciept? i say take it back, tumble dryers should not break until at least 6-8 months old and most should come with a minimum 1 years gauruntee so the manufacturer should fix at their cost not yours.

Hoover Maxi 6 TC50 Tumble Dryer making squealing noise


Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds.

If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem.

The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.

An indesit tumble dryer, only blowing cold air.


Most likely heating element or thermal cut-off is bad, or both.
