Heat is blowing out but the drum is not spining


You broughtke the belt of drum wont turn you might take the dryer apart to make sure the idler pulley is spinning free also. They sometimes get tight and burn the belt up.

Hi my Zanussi ZWG 1120M washing machine has stopped spinning, no error code is displayed, what could this be?


First check if the water remaining in the drum?
If it is, then the fault is in the drain phase (drain pump,filter...etc.) before the spining cycle.
Otherwise, faulty is motor, belt, electronic....etc.
By the way, model is unknown to me.

THE DRUM ON MY MACHINE ISNT GOING AROUND AND IT'S NOT SPINNING


Is it old washing machine?
One problem could be belt. It could be dropped. If you hear motor spining noise, but drum isnt spining - this is it.

If you cant hear anything - motor carbong brushes..
If not - electronics problems (semistor or etc).

I need more info to help you better.

The drum does not spin, the blower works, the gas will fire up, belts look to be in tact but may be loose?


Most gas dryers have a tensioner on the drive belt under the drum a metal bar with a teflon pully that is spring loaded to tension the belt. Try spining the drum by hand if it spins freely the belt may have come off the tensioner or it may be streched. If it doesn't turn the drum rollers or bushing may be bad. Without a make and moddel # it's hard to say
Hope this helps

Motor runsbut drum very slow to spin in spin cycle


The motor could be on its last leg of working. You can also check to make sure that the belt is not binding against anything under the drum. You may also want to make sure that the conterbalance weight is not hitting the belt. Make sure that your machine is lever and that it does not walk during spining.

GE hydrowave 5550 will not spin!!!


go to a laundromat as this is not a quick fix.

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Dryer won't start spining the drum


The belt is the likely culprit, you have to look inside to see if it is the belt

Dryer will not spin, belt is not lose


Take off the back and you should see the motor. You can also lean it over on the frontside and get to the motor. If your drum is not turning and the belt is not loose, then the problem lies in the axle or sprocket the drum turns on. It may have seized up and needs to be lubricated. Check your motor and see that it runs.

Machine does Agitate


Open machine's rear panel and remove belt. Check if motor spins (when it should, as per cycle stage). If motor is spining - Move tub manually and check for smooth spin In case it doesn't spin smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, you should remove it. In case motor doesn't spin- Check with multi-meter if it get power. If it get power - The problem is with the motor. Good luck !!
