Had same problem that went away after replacing each of the drum roller wheel/bearing assemblies. (repairclinic.com) Not the easiest of jobs removing & replacing the drum, but a lot cheaper than a new machine.

Fridgaire dryer model #FDEC216RES1 drum isnt turning


If the dryer does not turn then you need to take the back off and see if the belt has broke or come off. If the belt broke or came off then you can get a new one at most home repair stores. If the belt is on and or not broke the see if the wheel mounted to the motor will freely spin. If it does spin the make sure that the electric wires attached to the motor itself are attached and there are no shortages from the motor to the relay on the back of the control panel.

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.

I have a frigidaire gallery 49012/59012 dryer and the drum want turn. The belt is not broke and the motor runs. I can see the belt is not turning on the drum. Is the belt maybe stretched or what?


You may have a belt motor problem. Turn the drum by hand and if it turns freely the belt is off at the motor pulley. You can try to connect it back on the motor pulley but what caused it to come off first off. Your belt may be bad or the pulley assembly may also be bad. You'll have to pull out the dryer and remove the back panel to see and repair. Good luck.

Frigidaire sensor gas dryer will not turn on, power supply and breakers ok, Makes a noise like it wants to turn on. Drum is free and moveable.


if you can move the drum by hand and it's humming it sounds like you have a bad motor or the belt broke and is jamming the motor and that's why the drum moves,you have to get in there and check it out,open the door and the model number should be there,next time send model number
