My kenmore 87872800 dryer wont spin. everything else is working but drum wont spin.


Left the top of the dryer top, check to see if the belt isn't broke or loose, if that is in tact try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns easily. if not, the bearing in the back of the drum needs replaced. this is easy to replace, remove the drum by removing the dryer top and then remove the belt, and the drum slides up out of the machine. replace the bearing then reassemble dryer.

The dryer drum won't turn. Everything else seems


If you can hear the motor running when it is turned on then you dryer needs a new belt. If you cannot hear the motor running it needs a new motor.
