The belt is most likely either the wrong size (too long) or the belt has stretched. A new belt of the correct size should solve this problem. Make sure you have the model number when you buy the belt. I recommend that you take the old belt with you and verify that the replacement is a little shorter.

I HAVE A GE DRYER THE MOTOR SHUTS OFF WHEN YOU RELEASE THE START BUTTON AND THE DRUNM WONT ROTATE


there's a broken belt switch connected to the belt idler pulley,(when this belt breaks the switch opens) located down by the motor and it kills the power to the dryer when the belt breaks so the heating element cant get the clothes too hot to burn the clothes when the drum cannot rotate properly

THE DRYER DOES NOT WORK, IT DOESNT SPIN BUT MAKES A NOISE


richy wilson, the motor may be burned out. I think that the lid/door switch isnt the problem. If it is faulty, the dryer shouldnt do anything at all when started.
The first thing I would do would be to gain access into the dryer by removing the top panel and then the front panel. Check to see if the belt is still in one piece or severely worn.
You will probably need to test the motor. You can do this several ways;
1. remove the belt if it is in good shape.
2. check for obstructions in the blower fan housing (usually in the lower left corner. looks like a circle with fan blades throughout)
3.manually rotate the shaft of the motor, if it is stiff then you'll probably have to replace it.
4. if the motor rotates freely, try to run it momentarily with the belt removed. if it does rotate fine, then there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the drum itself. the idler pulley is usually a little wheel that holds the tension of the belt onto the drum.
5. try to rotate the drum by hand. if it is difficult to move, try to correct any problems with the rollers or idler pulley.
6. If motor hums but doesnt rotate on its own, even with the belt removed, yet you can turn it freely by hand, you usually will need to replace the MOTOR, or MOTOR START CAPACITOR.

If you have any further question, feel free to email me. If you do, try to include the model number of the dryer.

thanks,
mike

Dryer squeqks while rotating


It could be a noisey idler pulley that belt rides on, or a noisey drum bearing or drum glides, or even possibly a motor bearing going bad. Would need to be checked by repairman to determine exact cause.

A constant clicking noise near the motor of my maytag dryer. seems something is slipping as occasionally the drum and belt slow down


It sounds as if the idler bearing has started to fail see this picture http://sites.google.com/site/sublimeappliancerepair/_/rsrc/1246721031553/washer-will-not-spin/agitator-woes/dryer-will-not-work/how-do-i-get-inside-my-dryer/gas-dryer-quits-heating/more-gas-dryer-enlightenment/gallery-of-dryer-parts-locations-and-diagrams/frigidaire-gibson-kelvanator-dryer-101/kenmore-whirlpool-englis-roper-dryer-notes/ge-dryer-repair/maytag-norge-amana-crosley-basic-repair-info/Norge%20dryer%20with%20drum%20removed.jpg

The idler pulley in the picture is behind the motor.

I would check the ilder pulley to see if it rotates freely and does not have any odd side to side movements. If it does then replace the idler pulley and belt.

NOTE: Before you remove the idler pulley and belt note carefully the installation position of the belt, idler arm, spring and the idler pulley. For a first timer trying to do this it can be quite frustrating to get them all positioned correctly.

Need a btlt route so i can put the new drum back in my ge profile


route the belt around the drum, pull the spring loaded idler pulley to the postion that requires you to hold it there..
put the belt : 1 through the motor pulley and around the idler pulley, or 2. around the idler pulley which ever works to keep the tensioner tight. (Idler pulley, tensioner same thing its the pulley not on the motor.
Once you put the belt on the durm, pull the idler pull so there is tension on it it should be clear how it goes.
