Sounds like the belt is broken...or the motor is faulty.
If the belt is broken and you repair it yourself the cost is reasonable.
If the motor is burned out, then you looking at a higher cost...maybe $100-150 if a repair man fixes...could be more depending on your area

Dryer will run and heat but will not turn


It sounds like your drive belt might be broken you can get a new one if you go to www.repairclinic.com enter in your model number and it should cost around 9$ the other possibility is the tension pulley or if it doesn't sound like your motor is running but most likely the drive belt .

My dryer's barrel will not turn. I have replaced the pulley and belt but that did not fix the problem. The pulley's tension is not tight enough to turn the barrel. I have the correct barrel and...


Hello Mwagner, sounds like the Idler bearing pulley assembly has come loose from the belt. It's job is to keep tension on the belt so the motor is able to turn the dryer drum. By watching some videos online it seems that alot of teardown is required to get to the part you need to inspect and or replace. Here is a link for you to look at that might help you.

The barrel is not turning in the dryer when on. It continues to get and run but the barrel is not turning in the inside?


sounds like the drive belt has come off. If it still makes humming noise the motor is probably fine and you either need to open it up and reattach the belt or order a new one if its to loose or snapped.

The blower on my dryer needed to be replaced, I replaced it. Now the dryer gets hot very quickly, but is not tumbling. The belt looks worn but is still intact. I don't know anything about dryers! Do I...


If the drum was turning or if the blower caused it not to turn before you replaced the blower make sure the blower and the motor will turn maybe didn't get something back right. Did you clean all the lint or anything out of the blower housing and the vents. Recheck the idler pully and be sure the belt is threaded right. I have seen this happen and drum would't turn. If it's getting too hot sounds like the air is not getting pulled through the drum or the high limit is not shuting it down when it gets too hot . Check all thermastats and the high limit cut off. You can check them with a ohm meter. Check and see if you can turn the drum by hand.
Hope something here will help you.

Gas dryer gets hot but the drum doesn't turn. Broken belt?


open the door to the dryer and inside the rimof the door there is a switch, puch the switch in and with the oppisite hand puch the start button on the dryer. if the drum does not spin then you know its the belt. Pull Lint vent out if top mounted and remove the 2 screws, Between the top of dryer and the front panel, stick a putty knife roughly 3 inches from the side of dryer. There are locks that you will unlock with putty knife. once top is removed at top corners of front panel inside you will find 1 swcrew on each corner, and pull off front panel, slip new belt in and start putting things back together.

Fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.


Hi
Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt.
What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose.
Best wishes,

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.

Dryer makes squeaking noise


If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, open dryer door, remove screws going up into top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side.
