My dryer won't spin and is squeeling


It sounds like either the belt is loose or the drum is frozen. Try the following links to see if they help.

Why does belt keep coming off when spinning?


Sadly, this is almost certainly drum bearings worn out and the drum spins off centre, causing the belt to come adrift (I'm guessing your spin cycle has become significantly noisier recently). Worse news I'm afraid, the IWC6125 uses a sealed, non serviceable drum, so this is really an uneconomical repair that will cost around 60%-75% of the cost of the machine when new

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.

Dryer is heating but drum is not turning. What is the problem?


I would say belt is broken, if you turn the drum by hand and it spins freely then that is the problem, here is a website that will help:

Drum bearing noisy on spin


Remove the drum drive belt, and spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy, or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This a major repair.
Hope this helps.

Dryer Drum won't spin


You probably have a broken belt, Are you up for a do it yourself repair? or call a service tech.

Belts cost about $8 on line, buying it from the tech who installs it could cost you $20+ and then trip charge, tech time etc.

Belt replacement is easy for those of us that have done it, getting the belt back on the drum and thru the motor is the worst.

Wm noisy


drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
