Hi,

Here are some things to be checked for your issue.

First, remove the access panel from rear of dryer and locate what is called the tensioner pulley.
Try lubricating it. may as well service it while youre in there.

Dryers are reasonably simple. lube all moving parts and clean.

Next,Check belt tension. if the tension is loose, the belt cant rotate the drum when it is loaded, Do it the tension is less, try replacing the belt and lint could also be a problem.

Please leave me comments if you need furthur assistance

New drive belt on LG dryer to loose?


belt goes around drum the to the right of the tensioner and then to the motor pulley. you have to move the tensioner to the left to get the belt to the motor pulley. so the belt goes to the top of the tensioner, and around it in a clockwise manner, to the motor, not just under the motor and under the tensioner.

LG dryer wont start at times and will at others. If I spin the barrell it will work on speed dry only. Any other selection and it just makes a buzzing sound.


The belt may be too loose or the motor is over loaded. In worse case you need to replace either the motor or control board.

Yes, the motor is bad.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but if you want to attempt it I can walk you through it.
There should be a 5 YEARS warranty on the motor, so you might consider a repairman. Make sure they are LG certified and there will be no cost to you for the motor. The labor, however, may be up to you and could be expensive.

I'm willing to assist you on whatever you decide. The motor itself should be under $100.

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.
