    I checked the belt and it appears to have a bad spot on it...I am wondering if that would mess up the spinning of the drum?

Open the back to get to the motor and check to see if the belt is loose on the motor pulley. Try to turn the empty drum by hand--does it seem bound up? Turn the motor pulley, does it seem hard to turn? Maybe the motor pulley is loose on the motor shaft. Run the dryer for a short time to watch the action of the drive belt.

    It would depend on what you call a 'bad spot'. If the spot appears burned like the drum wasn't turning, but the motor was spinning in that one area, it could very well have scorched that location. However, that points to the drum being very hard to rotate especially when the drum is full of wet clothes, or the belt was not TIGHT. To replace the belt (which should be replaced as it will 'thump' every time the bad spot hits the motor pulley), the cabinet front and top must be removed to access the drum. Check the bearing at the back of the drum center and whatever supports the front of the drum--either rollers or plastic plates that the drum slides on. Belts require some sort of tension device that tightens the belt around the drum and motor pulley. There should be an idler pulley on a pivoting arm with a spring that tightens the belt. (look for a loose spring lying in the bottom) The belt will follow around the idler and motor pulleys in a sort of 'S' shape.

Dryer will not start but timer ticking


If the start button is an "ON - OFF" button (meaning, you can turn the dryer off manually instead of resetting timer in order to switch it off), try turning the dryer ON...then switch it back to "OFF".
Hopefully the dryer will continue, and the thermostat will kick in.

Power on but it won't spin.


You have a broken drive belt. To access the belt you have to remove the back metal cover.
The no heat problem could be a heating element or safety thermostat. These are also located under the back metal cover.

Power on but it won't spin.


Hello zurdo4ever
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


You said, power on , but it won't spin. hear a clicking noise in the motherboard.
Everything seems to work. except it won't spin.
The dryer was only spinning but not heating lately. need assistance

The clicking is a bad relay sound.
This is an electrical problem and it may be a need for a new cpb (Control panel Board) also.
time to get a tech in there to diagnose which problem you have and get you doing laundry again


Thank You For trusting us with your question

Dryer Gets Hot..But doesnt Spin


I don't know what kind of dryer you have, top or front loading, but it top loading it most likely is the belt that goes from the motor & wraps around the drum.
