Your problem may be a broken belt, or could be a faulty motor, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
Try this first:
Unplug your dryer, reach inside the drum and rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn. Plug your dryer back in and push the start button again.
Sometimes motors get dead zones in them, and this will help to move it from that zone.
If this does not help then you will need to check further.
If it is a front load machine, you can remove the front and this will expose the drum and belt, you can then remove the belt and drum and that will expose the motor, and idler arm bracket with pulley.
I hope this helps

Dryer is stuck on paused and won't spin. Turned off and re-started but the motor ran for a few seconds and then went to paused again.


Good Morning Jill,

So I see that you were drying bath mats and the dryer got stuck in a "Pause" mode and even if you cancel and restart it shows "Pause" on the display. I would suggest resetting the dryer. What you will need to do is either unplug it or you can shut the power off at the circuit breaker. When you do this you will need to leave it off for at least 2-3 minutes. Cut the power back on, start any cycle. If you are still having trouble not being able to start the dryer and "Pause" showing, I suggest you either contact the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

Have a Frigidaire Gallery Series front loading dryer and it keeps giving me an error(?) code, E68. When I start the dryer, it runs for a couple of minutes and then It starts beeping and flashing this code...


Sorry to read about your problem. this should be your E68 problem

You have a defective button on the control board.
The best thing to do is go into the diagnostic mode.
Turn the dial to Normal. Press and hold the Select and Pause/Cancel keys for 6 seconds, or until the Drying/Cool Down/Press Saver/Clean Lint Filter lights come on.
Then press the Start and Pause/Cancel Buttons 4 seconds. This puts you into the diagnostic mode to check the keys. Now, turn the dial 4 O'clock position, or 75. This will allow you to check all your buttons. As you press each key, it will light all the lights above it. When you press a key and it does nothing or the lights above any certain key stays on without pushing it, this button is stuck. If you can't clear it, you probably have to replace the control board.

The washer is stuck in pause mode. How do I get


Control Lock To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the washer, press Options and Select at the same time and hold for 10 seconds until “LOC” is displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time. To unlock the controls, press Options and Select at the same time and hold 10 seconds until ”LOC” is no longer displayed.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out
