Question about GE WSM2700W Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Dryer

2 Answers

My Dryer portion of my GE stacked washer/Dryer will turn on and I can hear the motor running but the drum will not turn. I pretty sure is the belt. I haven't been able to locate a schematic anywhere of the Dryer showing the belt. Is this something pretty easy to change? I'm very mechanically incline and have worked on washing machines before.

    Thanks for the quick reply. However I was on your suggested website and it doesn't show or offer the belt.

  • neil_diego Nov 13, 2009

    Can I open the dryer from the front or do I have to access through the rear? The stacked washer/dryer is wedged in a tight closet which makes reconnecting the plug, vent, and water lines a b****!

Dryer drum does not turn.

If you can hear the motor turn on, but the drum does not turn, it's probably a broken belt.
If you CAN'T hear the motor turn on, it could be the timer, the motor or safety controls.

I push the start button and the dryer makes a humming sound and the drum doesn't turn nor does the dryer turn on

Humming indicates motor is getting weak. If you look in the back compartment of your dryer you can probably see the belt. You can relieve the belt tension and then take the belt off the motor pulley. Once you do this, make sure the belt is out of the way and push the start button. If the motor turns it means it couldn't push the weight and is too weak to run. It make not turn without the belt on it either but you will hear if the sound is coming from the motor. In either case you need a new dryer or new motor if the dryer is pretty new.

Squeaky Belt when dryer is running. However the dryer is working (heating) fine

Very possibly not the belt but the associated components like the drum: motor bearings bearing strips support:rollers (if you have them) etc. Truthfully i would just continue untill something malfunctions then do an extensive repair. Once you start repairing these small ****, it esculates into a relatively large expence.

Kenmore dryer

Are you getting heat and can you hear the motor running? If so then you've just had a belt snap. It's a pretty easy fix. You just gain access to the dryer through the back. Remove the several screws that hold the back pannel in place. You will most likely see the broken belt as soon as you remove the panel.

A new belt is very inexpensive! Good luck!
