Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the drum can be turned easily then the belt is broken. The belt might break due to damaged felt kit, stiff idler roller or worn drum rollers. But as you said that the belt is not seems to be broken then the motor is burned. When you start the unit and if you hear a humming clicking sound then the motor has gone bad. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer to see if it still make a humming clicking sound. Check that the thermal fuse is not open and check the continuity with ohm meter. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool dryer LER7646E02 will not turn on


Could be something as simple as a broken belt or door switch is broken. Open top and check if the belt is still in tact. If yes, then check door switch to see if electrically closing when door is shut (check resistance with power off).

I would change the control thermostat. It is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the filter housing under the dust cover on the back side.

Drum won't turn


Hello wrorth...... generally when the dryer drum won't turn the belt is broken. It is generally a good idea to replace the idler pulley when you replace the belt. If you want to do this repair yourself, you can buy these parts at Searspartsdirect.com

Just enter your model number and the schematics of your machine will pop up. Which will also show you how to open it up to replace the belt... Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My dryer wont even turn on


Hi and wlecome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Open the door and turn the drum by hand. Your checking to see if the belt is still around the drum and not broken. If it turns with little resistance the belt has broken and the belt safety switch will prevent the dryer from working.

Also listen for a door switch click just as the door opens and near the closed position. No click = bad door switch.

A bad start button relay wil also cause this.

Addiitionally if the dryer is full of lint and the one time fail thermal fuse / thermistor has opened from excessive heat due to lack of airflow it will not start.

Check around the lint filter, in the dryer exhaust duct and all the way through to the outside wall for lint obstructions.

Lastly a broken blower wheel hub will cause lack of air-flow and result in the thermal fuse failure.

If you want your model specific data, please repsond with your model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dryer comes on but cylinder does not turn or spin.


This problem is commonly caused by a broken or loose dryer belt2.gif. Worse case scenario would be a bad drive motor. You will need to open the dryer cabinet in order to verfiy if the belt is still intact. A visual inspection should confirm if the belt is still wrapped around the drum and tight. If the belt is missing, the only way it will come off the drum is if it breaks. You will need to replace it if this is the case.

If you need further guidance, please post back with your brand name and model number so that I may be able to provide better assistance. All dryers are not contructed the same and I will need to be able to explain to you how to open the cabinet. I hope this helps you.

Front loading whirlpool dryer won't turn, but you can hear what sounds like the motor running. The the heating element turns on.


This problem is commonly caused by a broken or loose dryer belt. Worse case scenario would be a bad drive motor, but you've already explained that you can hear the motor running. So, that would rule out a drive motor problem. You will need to open the dryer cabinet in order to verfiy if the belt is still intact. A visual inspection should confirm if the belt is still wrapped around the drum and tight. If the belt is missing, the only way it will come off the drum is if it breaks. You will need to replace it if this is the case.

If you need further guidance, please post back with your model number (located aorund the door opening) so that I may be able to provide better assistance. All dryers are not contructed the same and I will need to be able to explain to you how to open the cabinet. I hope this helps you.

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).

How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?


The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?
