If you hear the motor running; then most likely the belt has broken.

Kenmore 80 series the drum will not turn but dryer gets hot


more then likely, the belt broke that turns the drum.

The blower on my dryer needed to be replaced, I replaced it. Now the dryer gets hot very quickly, but is not tumbling. The belt looks worn but is still intact. I don't know anything about dryers! Do I...


If the drum was turning or if the blower caused it not to turn before you replaced the blower make sure the blower and the motor will turn maybe didn't get something back right. Did you clean all the lint or anything out of the blower housing and the vents. Recheck the idler pully and be sure the belt is threaded right. I have seen this happen and drum would't turn. If it's getting too hot sounds like the air is not getting pulled through the drum or the high limit is not shuting it down when it gets too hot . Check all thermastats and the high limit cut off. You can check them with a ohm meter. Check and see if you can turn the drum by hand.
Hope something here will help you.

Whirlpool Electric dryer type-DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54. model LER7646JQO the heating element get very hot. the dryer does not turn on. the drum does not turn either.


If the heating element is getting very hot that means there is no air flow across it. If the drum doesn't turn then the blower is not turning causing the element to get very hot. Could be drum belt, drum rollers, or motor.

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.


Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

The dryer gets hot but the drum does not turn


sir please check the motor is running and this will be fixed inside the dryer and a belt will be fixed which makes the drum to rotate when the motor starts.so you should check both the belt and the motor.

The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around


More than likely, the belt is broken. Otherwise, the drum motor is shot. (That's not very likely though).
