Some times we all misunderstand each other and I think Gayle is giving her best shot. Her answer does make sense because you mentioned you could get it to spin. But remember belts wear and idler. pullleys weaken and motors do also. We are all here to help you (The Customer) I and our team are here for you. I will help you if you like, but I think Gayle needs a little better rate for offering her help. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Why is the drum not spinning on my Hoover VisionTech VTS712D21 Washing Machine?


It could be the drum bearings are seizing or something is causing it to jam.

If this is the case the motor would work too hard and draw too much current and consequently would cut out for a time and then reset.

Removing the drivebelt and turning the drum by hand would show if this is probable.

My Hotpoint Aquarius TVM570 started making a funny noise then cut out... I changed the fuse to see if it was that but no luck. You can turn the timer but as soon as you press 'start' it just trips...


if you check this link it shows the basics for getting in the dryer ,, after that , you may have to remove the vent tube inside ,, you will see a fan attached to the back of the motor, your missing Rib could be rubbing against that or possibly even the drum as it turns,, be sure and unplug the machine anytime you remove the back

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin


Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Fridgedaire drying- It's screeching!


There are several things that will make a dryer noisy. Here's a list of a few items that I know of. Some may or may not apply to your dryer: FIRST OF ALL, BEFORE SERVICING THE INSIDE OF ANY DRYER UNPLUG THE UNIT OR TURN THE CIRCUIT BREAKER OFF. 1. Drum rollers worn out. Most dryers have some sort of drum roller that supports the dryer drum. There are two mounted under the drum in the rear of the dryer. Some models will have an additional set of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. You may also here the drum thumping too. Lubricating them with a good quality turbine oil at the point of the spin shaft will get rid of any squeaks or squeals. DO NOT oil the roller wheel as it will slip on the drum. 2. Dryer drum seal. This is a felt gasket or seal that is glued to the rear ring of the drum. When they get old they become brittle and pieces start to break off leaving bare metal scraping against bare metal. They also can become folded and part of it will be seen poking through the back of the drum inside. This seal should ride evenly around the outside perimeter of the drum and should not be seen inside the drum. 3. Dryer drum support glides. Some dryer models have teflon plastic support glides mounting around the ring of the front of the tub, or will have teflon supports mounted under the front of the drum. In either case, if the plastic gets too worn down, the dryer will start to make a scraping noise. 4. Idler pulley. This is a little pulley that provides tension on the dryer drive belt. It is located near the drive motor and can start to make noise. Usually a little bit of lubrication at the point of the spin shaft will get rid of the problem. 5. Dryer drive motor. Sometimes when the drive motor gets a nice collection of dust build up around it, the motor will make noise as the impeller rubs against dust or any other debris caught. A stiff cleaning brush and a vacuum cleaner will help get rid of dust accumulation around the motor. Now, there is a possibility that the bearings in the motor could be going bad too. You would need to remove the drive belt and check to make sure the motor free spins with no power applied. Give the motor shaft a spin. It should glide free with no noise. 6. Dryer drive belt. When the belt gets old it will develop a "glaze" on it and start to slip around the drum. This can causing a squealing noise, especially under heavier loads. This is usually a prelude to the belt breaking. Start with the easy and simple options first. Try lubricating any drum rollers or pulley rollers. DO NOT get oil on the drive belt. Lubricate the rollers at the point of the spin shaft only. Inspect the front and rear of the drum. The seal will be in the rear. Make sure that it is intact and good condition, and make sure it has not folded inside the drum. Also, check for glide supports around the front of the drum and make sure there are not areas that are worn down. Another thing that COULD cause noise, but may not be associated to the problem you are having, are foreign objects getting lodged between the dryer drum and casing. Screws, paper clips, nails, etc., have been known to get caught in these areas and will make some awful noise. If you try everything and the unit still makes noise the drive motor bearings could be going bad. This is usually not likely and the motor can be very expensive to replace. Last of all, some heat on the top and rear of the dryer are normal. However, if it is excessive (you can't place your hand on it and hold it there), you probably need to give the inside casing a good cleaning. This could be a sign that your dryer ducting has become clogged and the unit is actually overheating trying to fight for air. Ask yourself, "Are my clothes taking a longer time to dry?" If the answer is "yes" then you need to clean the unit out and check the entire length of the ducting to ensure it is blowing air out of the vent. Remember also, the shorter and straighter the ducting run, the better. Any sharp bends or kinks (behind the dryer) will cause lint to back up. I hope you find this advice helpful. Good luck and let me know if I can help further.
