Question about Estate EED4300TQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Motor is running but not turning drum to dry the clothes. We removed the back of dryer to see if maybe belt slipped or broke but can not see any belts and do not want to start removing a lot of screws without first knowing where to look.

Look from the rear, near the bottom. The belt wraps around the drum, and near the bottom is a tensioner that keeps tension on the belt. If it is broken, you'll see it laying on the floor of the dryer.

Kenmore he2 dryer is makinga loud noice when drying clothes


Hi Ralph Romero

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like the drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear they will make a thumping type of noise.
If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

My dryer drum does not turn during drying. The belt is not broken and the dryer is heating the cloths. Why has the drum stop turning?


You could have a faulty motor, or maybe the belt has slipped off of the idler pully or motor pully

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley, or maybe a faulty motor.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer some slide off.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer,some are clipped on,others slide off.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove
the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket
with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Pay attention to the route of the belt,this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor pully causing the drum
not to turn.
If you cannot find the proble there, then maybe the timer switch is faulty and needs replacement.
NOTE:
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum
rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3
in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting
noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots
on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I have a frigidaire gallery 49012/59012 dryer and the drum want turn. The belt is not broke and the motor runs. I can see the belt is not turning on the drum. Is the belt maybe stretched or what?


You may have a belt motor problem. Turn the drum by hand and if it turns freely the belt is off at the motor pulley. You can try to connect it back on the motor pulley but what caused it to come off first off. Your belt may be bad or the pulley assembly may also be bad. You'll have to pull out the dryer and remove the back panel to see and repair. Good luck.

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

Dryer drum does not turn

The drum doesn't turn on my dryer, why?


A couple of possibilities:

There is a belt that goes around the dryer drum. It may have broken or slipped out of place. If you remove the top of the dryer (usually pretty easy), you will probably see the belt going around the middle of the drum. (If not, maybe it broke.) It is loose? If so, it probably slipped off the motor or is broken (as you may find if you pull on it). If all this seems ok, you need to remove the front of the dryer. That's usually a little more complicated, but not too bad. Now you'll probably see the motor. On mine, it is on the lower right. Does the belt go around the motor pulley and the drum and is tight? If so, maybe the motor is broken.

At this point you need to know if the motor works, but that may not be really easy because opening the door usually breaks an interlock switch that stops the motor from turning. But if you are careful, especially with electricity, you may be able to bypass enough things to see if the motor turns. Alternatively, note the exact position that the motor pulley is in (mark it if necessary). Then reassemble the dryer, try to run the motor, and then open it again. Did the mark move?

At this point, you probably have enough information to see what needs to be fixed or replaced. One additional problem I had was that the motor pulley was slipping on its shaft. If a plastic/nylon part has broken, you may need to replace it. Of course, if the motor isn't turning, make sure that nothing is jamming it somehow (like a stray sock tightly caught in the belt). Hope this helps.

Dryer belt broke on my dryer.


I use a putty knife to press against the spring clips to pop the top. Then I use a quarter inch nutdriver to remove the screws holding the front panel on. I remove the wires from the door switch and lift out the front panel. I remove the drum and put the dryer on a work bench or a tailgate. I inspect the blower wheel(most of the time they get loose). I get the ball of lint out of the front panel filter housing. I vacuum out the dryer with my shopvac. I oil the rollers and idler and inspect the drum slides for wear. I loop a new belt rib side down to the drum and set it back in the dryer. With my left hand I drop the belt under the motor pulley and raise up the idler looping the belt on it and let the tension hold the idler. I manually slowly turn the drum to make sure the belt is secure and not twisted. I place the front back on. Snap the top down and give her a try. Piece of cake.
