Your belt is broken or the tensioner pulley may have mal-functioned.

    I don't believe there is a belt driven motor on this model. Is there?

Why doesn't drum turn when the start button is pushed?


try turning the drum by hand while on dry cycle> just tape shut or hold door switch in by hand then have someone turn the drum? see if it starts? if so ur motor windings may be bad ad not pushing enough power to run machine, also check the thermal fuse and other thermostats as u may have shorted them somehow? lastly check the belt and tensioner as the motor switch may have switched off if there was a problem with the belt

Baril ne tourne pas


What kind of dryer is this? I assume that this is a front-loading belt-driven drum dryer. What happens if you turn the drum by hand? If it turns freely, it could be that you have a broken belt. If there is some resistence to turning the drum, is it possible to turn the drum while trying to start the dryer (this may require pushing the interlock button and the start button at the same time you turn the drum)? If the dryer starts to work with a little push, the problem is most likely a capacitor on the motor. Otherwise your motor may be work out - worn brushes or bearings.

I have a brand new front loader and the drum is not turning during the cycle....it turns freely if I do it by hand


If you hear the motor running and the console doesn't put out an error code during the cycle, it sounds like your drive belt may have come off the motor / drum pulley. You should be able to access it by removing the back panel. Be careful- and unplug the machine first.

Good luck.

I have a frigidaire front load washer that I have spent over $375 to have repaired and it is still not working. It is not washing or spinning. It has water in it now. It comes on and just hum.


i just fixed the same problem on my machine. turns out my drum was jammed by a pair of underwear that made its way between the drum and housing. try turning the drum by hand. if it does not spin freely, take off the back panel and remove the belt. check the motor to see if that turns freely. if not,replace motor. if the motor turns, try turning the drum by hand (very sharp edges, wear gloves) using the pulley. if something is in there impeding the spin, get ready to pull the whole thing apart. cuss a lot and have a great time

My dryer wont start. When i turn the button to start it, it hums but wont run.


something is jamming the drum of the dryer from turning... remove the casing and take a closer look. There may also have been something recently dried which may have come out and jammed the dryer drum. Try hand turning the dryer drum to see... it should freely revolve at least a little bit
Good luck with it

Check you can move the drum freely by hand. 1. if its free - then check belt. 2. if it wines - check motor. 3. if does not move - you need to check for obstruction. hope this helps ....

Put new belt on dryer but it wont turn and i can smell burning and the drum wont turn


sounds like the belt may be bound somewhere, I would take it back apart and see if I can turn everything by hand. If everything turns freely then I would reinsert drum, hook belt up and see it I could turn the drum with my hands, it will turn but not to freely. Hope this helped tim
