Tumbler belt came off


  • Unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the lint trap by lifting its cover and sliding it out. Use a screwdriver to unscrew the two screws that hold in the housing of the lint trap.Lift up the top panel of the dryer and take off the holder for the door switch wire. Look for the screws that hold in the front panel of the dryer, located on top of the front panel, and unscrew them. Take the panel off the dryer by lifting it off.Look inside the dryer, find the broken dryer belt, and before taking it off, note the way it is routed around the pulleys, then take it off. Install a new Whirlpool dryer belt by slipping it around the tumbler with the grooves facing the surface of the tumbler. Ask an assistant to hold up the tumbler while you move the belt into the proper place, aligned with the black line around the width of the tumbler.Wrap the new dryer belt around the pulleys as noted in Step 3. If you don't remember how, or the old belt was snapped and not aligned properly, look at the dryer belt diagram in your user's manual.Align the front panel of the dryer with the tumbler. Put back in the two screws that hold the panel in place. Open the door of your dryer and with your hand, turn the spinner one time counterclockwise. Reconnect the holder for the door switch wire, being careful that it doesn't touch any moving parts.Use the screwdriver to carefully position the rubber seal along the back of the tumbler. Make sure the seal is on the outside of the tumbler and that none of it sticks to the inside of the tumbler.Slide the lint filter and housing back into place, and screw in the two screws that hold it in. Plug the cord of the dryer back into the electrical outlet and check that it spins properly.

    I have a whirlpool dryer and when you push the start button the motor just humms and the tumbler doesn't spin. i opened the door spun the tumbler and push the start button and closed it quick and it...


    You need to test it, but when the drum doesn't spin on its own, that more than likely means the motor is going bad. If you remove the belt from the motor pulley and run the motor with no load on it for a few minutes and then reattach it see if the motor runs this way, you may get a few more runs out of it. You can usually access the belt pulley form the rear compartment of the dryer.

    Dryer spinning but not drying!


    if it runs with the door open the door switch could be defective,otherwise check your heating element high limit/cycling thermostat switch,then the thermal fuse on the side of the vent housing.and also check the power input for 240 volts a.c. if its an electrically heated element,if inside the terminal strip any terminals burn or break off the element can't heat/if its a gas dryer,check the thermal fuse,the high limit thermostat,the radiant sensor on the burner tube or the gas boost and secondary coils on the gas inlet valve,they get weak or open and close off the gas supply

    Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


    I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.
