Condensing tumble dryer not running

When power is applied and dryer turned on, sounds as though motor is running but drum is not turning. If left on smell of burning developes. Have removed small panel at rear of dryer and I believe the drive belt for the drum is intact. Wondered if you could shed some light.

Has the belt shredded and wrapped itself around the shaft? try to manually rotate the drum to see if the belt is free and the motor shaft moves. it sounds like the motor is stuck and the smell is the uncirculated heat at the back. let me know your results.
taking the lid off will gain access.

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.


Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

If motor is sounding quieter than normal more than likely the belt has broken.

Stopped tumbling. Heater comes on, but drum does


It sounds like your belt is broken or your motor is finished. Take off the back cover of the machine and see if the belt is in one piece and where it belongs. If it is, check to see if you have power to your motor with a volt meter. If you have power, the motor is in need of replacement.

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
