ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley. If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine. Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum. Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn. While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good luck, I hope this helps

I have an indest 7kg tumble dryer the barrel has stopped spinning. it still heats up but wont spin.the barell can be turned by had but very stiff still. any ideas on what may have caused this or how to fix...


It sounds to me like the actual motor has stopped functioning. This could be due to a number of causes, but is more than likely due to wear of the conductive 'brushes' inside the motor itself.

I recommend having a qualified person come have a look.

Dryer will spin but not dry , heat element is fine


Try replacing the high limit switches if the element is fine. The limit switches will not allow power to the heat strips if they are blown. They are the little silver buttons on the heat strip. There are usually two wires connected to them one coming from the controls and one from the heat strip itself

My dryer is not heating,we have checked all of the settings, and the barrel is spinning so can you please help, the unit is about 4 yrs.old I have a maytag neptune


check ur breaker first, dryers will run on 120volts but wont heat unless have 240.

if electric check ur heating element, thermostats, and thermal fuse for continuity with a meter.

if gas check the ignitor,thermal fuse, and secondary gas coils,

Check connections at dryer terminal. sometimes they will melt and have now power and wont cause a breaker trip. plug needs 120v at L1 and 120 at L2 and equals 240 with L1 and L2 combined. can check at outlet with a meter.
