White knight gas tumble dryer


On most clothes dryers, whether gas or electric, the drum is rotated by a belt, which runs off a motor. The most common reason for it not to tumble is that the belt has broken.Someone needs to replace that belt. If, however, when you start it up , you do not hear a humming sound whilst pressing your ear to the top of the machine, the motor itself may not be turning, which could also be the problem. Be blessed.

My white knight tumble dryer drum has stopped going round and the dryer is just making a loud humming noise, please can you advise?


Your belt probably broke or fell off the motor . The humming noise is the motor running without a belt on it

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.


Hi,

Sound like the 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

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Tumble Dryer Belt Keeps Snapping


Perhaps the zipper caused sleeve damage where the drum interfaces with the sleeve. Check for free rotation issues and periodic noises when rotating the unit by hand. Here are a couple of other possibilities: When old belt was replaced the belt was misaligned (not perpendicular) to the drum. When removing ore installing the drum there was a loss of sleeved material that the drum rides on. When replacing the drum into the sleeve and closing the drier up sleeve is not flush, something did not fit together quite right. Remember very small alignment problems will be magnified 3 fold on the clearances of the sleeve to drum. And lastly the motor bearings could be starting to slide in the bearing raceway which can intermittently stop the motor briefly, doing this will also snap the belt. Check to make sure that the motor turns freely when the belt is not on. Spin it in both directions to ensure that there are not any problems. Once you get it all back together check rotation of the drum by hand, there will be some tension but it should move, if not retrace your steps.

TIP OF THE DAY--
To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not runnig straight through then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. This wont really fix the main condition, but it will not hurt. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.
Best of luck.

White knight 767 tumble drier


If the rug was very heavy you could have burnt up the motor. If it will restart after it cools off, replace the motor and clean out the vent system.

Good luck.
