Question about Dryers
I have a problem with my dryer, the drum won't spin but there is heat coming from the element. I have tried taking the load of washing out but it still won't spin. I can't find a reset switch either. The dryer is only 5 months old but the online store where I bought it don't want to acknowledge responsibility. Any help will be appreciated thanks.
This may be a simple broken belt problem. The dryer utilizes a belt that wraps around the drum and is driven by a motor. If the belt breaks, the dryer heating circuits will still finction normally, but the drum will not rotate. It would be helpful if you could provide me with a model number (located somewhere around the door opening, or along the back of the operator console). If it IS a belt problem, this is a fairly inexpensive fix. If the motor, however, has gone bad, it may be considerably more. Please post back with your comments. I hope this helps you.
