My amana dryer model #NED7200TW turns on and the motor runs nicely but the drum wont turn on its own. It will turn easily if i turn it with my hand. only about 3 years old.


if your saying theres a motor running but the drum wont turn . then id say either the idler pulley has come off or drive belt has broken , these do go bad especially on heavy load machines

Drum doesn't turn.


Barbara,
Could be a couple of different things. You could have a broken belt, and the humming noise you here is the motor running. Another possibility is that something has gone wrong with the motor and it might be locked up some how. See if you can turn the drum by hand, reach inside and push on one of the baffles and see if you can turn it. If it moves very easily, I would guess broken belt, if it turns with some tension, your belt is probably okay and you would be looking at some type of motor issue more than likely. If you can barely turn it at all or not at all, your motor may have locked up for some reason and would need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Ge electric dryer. suddenly stopped working. Will


Hi Stv,
There isn't really major problem, but a problem.
You will need to unplugged your unit and take it apart. Are you handy?
If and when the unit is apart look at the motor and the fan exhaust and see if there is a coin or screw is jamming the motor or the fan
while you are in there you may want to clean it up,
That should be the problrm

When Turned on, drum will not spin?


if the motor is running,your belt is the problem.if all you hear is a slight humming noise,you may have a bad motor,or something caught in blower. if the drum turns easily by hand,its probably the belt

When you turn on the dryer you can hear the motor hum but the drum wont turn ...i checked the belt and it is not broken


When you checked the belt, did you check to see if the motor would turn by hand, if not the motor is locked down and that's why you hear the hum noise, it still has power and still trying to rotate, but from being locked down it has no option but to strain and hum. If that's not it, check around the drum for a sock or small piece of clothing, it can wedge between drum and dryer frame and cause the tub not to rotate just like if the motor were locked down.

Press the start button on dryer, it hums but wont turn. With 2 people pressed the start button again, held the door switch, reached in turned the drum, it hummed stopped humming then no more nothing....


Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

I have an older whirlpool dryer when you turn it on it hums but doesn't spin.


Three possibles here:

1) The motor is running but the belt is broken not allowing the drum to turn.

Try to turn the drum by hand and see if it rotates very freely and takes a while to stop. if so, your belt is broken. If it feels like there is a good deal of resistance on the drum and stops as soon as you let go, your belt is functional.

2) Something is stuck (probably in the blower wheel) not allowing the motor to start up. If as you attempted to rotate the drum in #1 above it did not turn at all, this and #3 below are possible.

You'll need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower wheel and verify it's clear.

3) Motor is bad (common with older well used dryers) and needs to be replaced. This may also cause the drum to be locked as above.

That's all I can think of that will cause the motor humming but not having the drum to spin.

Dryer will not start


I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it ,,, i did a comfortor ,very heavy when wet .....next day i tried to do a new load ...when I turned start button all i got was a hum... I removed screws just inside door at top of lip this releases top of dryer,,,, exposing drum i rotated drum clockwise to check condition of belt ....looked good ....mine is 7 yrs old ...to soon to be motor problem ....so while turning drum i held start button on and finally motor kicked in and this solved my problem...you might be able to accomplish this without taking of panel ..though you wont be able to see belt ....by turning the drum from inside dryer while someone else turns on start button

The dryer just makes a humming noise when I turn it on, but won't turn all the way on


When you say it won't turn all the way on, does that mean the drum isn't rotating?

If yes, the belt from the motor that goes around the drum might have broken and you can hear the hum of the motor spinning but no longer rotating the drum.

The other thing I can think of is that the motor itself has failed, possibly seized, and you can hear the motor trying to spin but it cannot. With the dryer unplugged and empty of clothes, try to rotate the drum. If it rotates extreamly easily, then the belt has broken. If you cannot rotate it at all by hand, then chances are the motor is seized. It should rotate with moderate effort.
