Kenmore dryer model 11062802101..belt seams ok on drum but does not spin


Hi

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley,faulty capacitor, or a faulty motor.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:
http://www.expertappliance.com/dryerbeltconfiguration.html

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

there are drum rollers that support the drum and turn during rotation,FIRST UNPLUG the unit from POWER,then,remove the 2 bottom screws at the front cover and remove lower cover below the door, then remove 4 screws on front door cover 2 on each side and remove upper front and door,then remove 2 screws just under the top cover in front then release and remove drum belt from idler pulley by reaching under drum on right side by motor,then remove drum and 2 pulleys will be on rear of inside machine the other 2 will be on door panel,sometimes you can remove "c" CLIPS AND CLEAN HAIR AND LINT OUT AND lube with dry lubricant,but they are relatively inexpensive so replace all 4 rollers,check axles they turn on too and belt condition too amnd throughly clean out lint from innards too

Tub won't turn belt broken ,how do you replace belt?


You can remove the lower panel below the door and see the motor and belt. To replace the belt you need to unscrew the front panel and slip the belt over the front of the drum. Reattach the top front panel with screws and loosen the tension roller from the front bottom access panel. Hook the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller. Tighten the tension roller and turn the drum by hand to make sure there are no restrictions and the belt and motor pulley are turning. It is best to inspect the drum rollers on the bottom of the drum to make sure the rollers have no play in them. If you can wiggle the rollers front to back replace them too. Replace the rest of the panels and check the units operation.
