SOURCE: drum will not turn?

the motor will most likely be ok, its the capacitor on the motor that normally blows,( the white/grey cylinder with 2/4 wires coming off it, about 3 inches long bolted to the motor its self. can be purchased separtely in eletronic spares shops. all u need is the (uF) number on the original part.

Heat is blowing out but the drum is not spining

You broughtke the belt of drum wont turn you might take the dryer apart to make sure the idler pulley is spinning free also. They sometimes get tight and burn the belt up.

I have whirlpool duet wed9200sq. The dryer seems to be working fine other than the drum will not turn. It heats fine and the drum will turn by hand, the belt is fine, no warning codes or other problems.

The drum and belt may be fine but the motor may not be. Since you seem to have access to the drum and belt, you can check to see whether the motor starts. Also check to see whether the belt and tensioner device are working OK

My kenmore dryer's drum does not spins. I checked for the belt and it's fine. Where do you suggest I check?

the drive motor if its not turning then the drum wont turn, also if its sliped the belt off thats another reson why and one more thing to look at is how tight is the belt on the drum,,, is it just sliping round it? is the drum very tight to turn by hand? are the drum bearings jamed up, is any thing stuck behind the drum? ??? like one of the kid's?
i hope this is helpfull to you

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run

So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
