Question about Kenmore 75922 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Gas dryer gets hot but the drum doesn't turn. Broken belt?

How can I check the drive belt on the gas dryer to see if that's what is keeping the drum from turning? I am able to manually spin the drum. Where can I get a new belt?

    Post the model number and brand of the dryer, and we can discuss how to open it up and see what the problem is. Probably the belt has broken, but perhaps the tension pulley has broken/fallen. The model number should be on a sticker inside the door or possibly behind the control panel.

Open the door to the dryer and inside the rimof the door there is a switch, puch the switch in and with the oppisite hand puch the start button on the dryer. if the drum does not spin then you know its the belt. Pull Lint vent out if top mounted and remove the 2 screws, Between the top of dryer and the front panel, stick a putty knife roughly 3 inches from the side of dryer. There are locks that you will unlock with putty knife. once top is removed at top corners of front panel inside you will find 1 swcrew on each corner, and pull off front panel, slip new belt in and start putting things back together.

Barrel isn't turning.


I believe you will find the belt is broken.
There is a motor which is supposed to turn a belt, which in turn drives the drum.
If you wish to repair ir yourself, a letter to "Fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the steps.
Be blessed.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


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.

Dryer is hot but drum does not turn


Broken or otherwise unhooked drum belt.. remove the casing and you'll most likely find that the tensioner has loosened or belt is unhooked or both...

The motore will run, but it is not spinning. The motor smells hot when it is running and not spinning.


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.
Here is a link to the belt.

check for a "glazed" drum belt or a broken "idler" pulley near or on the motor that keeps the belt tight on the drum

Maytag gas dryer, model #MDG7600AWW does not turn on


a thermal fuse should read shorted until it gets hot .. the buzzing you hear might be the motor running but not turning the drum .. that would be a broken belt .. the motor is spring loaded to keep the belt tight ..the belt is long .. it goes around the drum and down to the motor ... belts are available at many appliance parts shops .. changing it is not hard for someone handy .. a bit more than you would want to handle if you are not mechanically inclined ... on some maytags the whole front of the dryer comes off with just two screws near the bottom .. that makes servicing much easier ..

Maytag Performa PYE G2200 gas dryer, the dryer seems to turn on but the drum will not turn.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a broken drum belt is at fault. Below is an illustration of the drum belt.

Here is a belt installation diagram:
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.

The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around


More than likely, the belt is broken. Otherwise, the drum motor is shot. (That's not very likely though).

step 1- remove the face of the dryer, then remove the cover for the fan, check to see if object is blocking the fan, if object is there , remove object, if not go to step 2

step 2- check to see if the belt is broken, if the belt is broken replace the belt.

step 3 - remove the belt from the motor and turn the dryer on, if the motor doesn’t turn then you need to replace the motor.
