Dryer heats but doesn't turn.

Most likely the belt broke on the drum. Less likely the motor died. When turn the dryer on do you hear the motor running? If so you probably broke the belt. You will have to unlock the top and pull the front off. The belt rides around the drum towards the back of the dryer.

I have a Kenmore 66512690 dryer , when i press the start button, I just get a buzz like it wants to go but it does not. Could this be the motor?

Based on the limited details the motor is either humming instead of starting and running or the motor is running but the drum is not turning.

This symptom could indicate:

  • Broken belt if it's blowing air out the exhaust.
  • Faulty motor
  • Jammed drum
  • Loose wiring connection
  • Object or piece of clothing article jamming the blower wheel.
Open the dryer door and see if you can rotate the drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. If it's very difficult to rotate then it could have something to do with the motor or drum glide. If the drum will not turn then something is likely jamming the blower wheel.

I have an Admiral ade7005ayw dryer and it started making a loud squealing noise. I believe it is the drum glides causing the problem. How do I fix them?

First it may not just be them. You need to check all the rollers also. Turn off the power or unplug. Take off the front panels.Then the front bulkhead. pull belt off motor then slide drum out. The drum glide will be 2 plastuc strips on the front bulkhead. The rollors wil be on the back bulkhead. Give them a spin if they don't spin freely replace both cause you don't want to do this again in a short amount of time. To take off those rollers you will need a set of lockring pliers. Also check the Idler pulley that puts tension on the belt for wear.

The dryer does not spin, the motor runs but the drum doesn't spin

The dryer either spins because of belts/ropes or because the motor directly contacts the dryer drum. I would tip the dryer so I could inspect the drum drive mechanism(s). Make sure you don't have a belt that broke or slipped or that a drive wheel locked up.

Belt broke on GE Dryer model #DDE7500BALWH

You will need a WE12X82P belt, or just a WE12x82 (the P stands for packaged)
  • Disconnect power
  • Remove screws under the front edge of the dryer top
  • Swing top up and remove one screw from each side panel holding the dryer front, near the top of the dryer.
  • Pull dryer front forward a bit and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to the side. (no need to disconnect wires if you don't want to)
  • Put belt around drum, lifting drum a bit to get belt past drum support slides on the bottom side.
  • Check to make sure drum slides are not worn through, especially the one on the left side.
  • The grooved side of the belt touches the drum
  • Belt runs from drum directly to motor pulley on the left side, then around belt tensioning wheel and back to the drum.
  • Turn the drum a revolution or two (counter clockwise) before reassembly.

My lint filter assembly is broken. I was drying a small load of clothes and the lint filter got tangled with clothes and came out into the drum. The dryer was stopped when I found this situation. ...

The drum should turn either direction. Part of the filter must be catching in the belt at the drum or motor when turning clockwise. CCW would push it out away from the belt so no pinching.
