Hello,
If you take the top off ( normally 2 small plastic oval plugs near front of lid on edges prise them off with a fine blade then you will find 2 screws inside you will need a torx driver I forget size undo then lift lid back then up.Or they may have 2 screws at back under lid.Then you will see the drum and there should be a belt around the drum if not then it has broken.If belt is ok then the motor or capacitor on motor may have gone.

Hope this helped.

Why portable dryer heats but does not spin?


Open it up and check the belt inside. A belt is around the drum and around a pulley at the motor. If it is broken or has slipped off, then it wont spin.

The drum in my Kenmore gas dryer (over 20 years old) will not spin around. There is still heat, but clothes will not spin around. Does the belt need to be replaced or should I get a new dryer altogether?...



Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Dryer will not spin. Its a propane dryer and the heat is fine...just wont spin. I assume there is a belt somewhere?


Belt is on the inside. It wraps around the motor pulley and the drum. Opening the dryer is required. Make sure unit is unpluged 1st. Very easy repair. Belt can be ordered online and shipped to you. Model and serial number will be required. Probably about a $15 - $30 repair. Should take about 30 -45 minutes on the long side.

Dryer doesn't spin


Look around for stiff wheels, bad bearings, glides and idlers. Its a good idea to oil the rollers with some temp resistant oil such as zoom oil. Dont use WD40 as this stuff is highly flammable and may cause a fire.

Sounds like you need a dryer belt.

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

Dryer won't spin


This may be a simple broken belt problem. The dryer utilizes a belt that wraps around the drum and is driven by a motor. If the belt breaks, the dryer heating circuits will still finction normally, but the drum will not rotate. It would be helpful if you could provide me with a model number (located somewhere around the door opening, or along the back of the operator console). If it IS a belt problem, this is a fairly inexpensive fix. If the motor, however, has gone bad, it may be considerably more. Please post back with your comments. I hope this helps you.
