Whirlpool LG5701XSN0 dryer drum does not turn

I have a Whirlpool LG5701XSN0 gas dryer (identical to LG5701XSW0 but almond instead of white).
It hums but the drum does not turn when the start button is pressed. I'm guessing a stuck or broken belt.

How do I access the belt? Do I need to remove the entire front, or just the lower panel?

    I opened the lower panel, gave the belt a couple of tugs, motor is turning the drum again. I will probably pick up a belt, there's probably a rough or thin patch.

Whirlpool dryer was making loud squeaking noise. Now it is not turning at all. Makes a noise when you turn it on, but stops completely.


Check the drum belt. Check the drum rollers on the back & glides on the front that the drum rides on also check the idler pully. Check the felt the drum rides on in case it came loose and won't let the drum turn. Did it hum when you started it if so could be the motor. Good luck

When the button is pressed to start the dryer it begins to hum as iff the drum is stuck. It does this for about 5 to 10 seconds then shuts off. If I attempt to start it again nothing happens. sound like...


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
