I'm assuming that the dryer is still getting power from the wall outlet. If so, listen to hear if the motor is still spinning. If it is, it sounds like the drum belt broke and will need to be replaced. Some models are easier than others to replace.

If you don't hear the motor spinning and again, if there is power to the machine, check the door switch. They're easy to check with a volt/ohm meter and can and do fail. UNPLUG the dryer, set your volt/ohm meter to CONTINUITY or OHMS. When you press the switch, the reading should be close to 0 ohms. If there is no difference in the reading whether or not the switch is pressed, you need replace the switch in order to get back to getting your clothes smelling April fresh again. :) Also, make sure the switch is in tight and hasn't become loose, causing it to not be actuated by the door. (Actually make this the first thing you do. :)

These are just a couple of basic things to check and I hope one of them gets you going again! Let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

If you turn the transmission pulley one way it will agitate the other it will get hard raise up to release the brake and then turn the transmission and the inner drum. If you cannot turn the drum then I would check to see if a nail has gone through one of the holes in the bottom of the drum or a piece of clothing has jammed between the top of the drum and the top cap of the outer tub.

Kenmore 90 Series, 10 years old; Dryer was making funny noise and stopped in the middle of a cycle. There was a burnt smell when it stopped. Cannot turn drum manually either. What are possibilities?


OF COURSE SOMETHING BURNT INSIDE THE SYSTEM. YOUR MOTOR MIGHT BE BURNT. 90 SERIES, YOU MUST HAVE THE LINT FILTER ON TOP CORRECT? TAKE FILTER OUT, UNSCREWS THE TWO SCREWS, PULL TOP PANEL TOWARDS YOU AND LIFT UP. DISCONNECT LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, UNSCREW TWO SCREWS HOLDING FRONT PANEL ON, REMOVE FRONT PANEL, TAKE DRUM OUT AND CHECK THE UNIT. GOOD LUCK

Gas dryer 12690. When stopping dryer in the


When the dryer stops and you try to restart it do you hear a buzzing sound? If you do then you have a overheated drum motor. Full of lint or bad motor bearings. If bad motor bearings only solution is to replace the motor.

There is a burning smell and the dryer just stopped in the middl of a cycle.


Without a proper model number I would say you need to check the drive belt. Is the drum turning? It could also be a heater control problem. Best off to call a reliable repair company such as Sears.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.
