Drum does not turn


Try pulling the electric motor out and running power direct with an extension cord to see if it comes on. If it comes on then you have some kind of electronic problem or a short, If the motor doesn't come on then it is bad. Just be careful to not electrocute yourself.

Musy clarify problem with maytag dryer. heat is working fine but drum stopped turning is it possibly a belt or something got stuck? i can turn drum by hand


You've almost assuredly got a broken belt. There are so many different ways of disassembling various makes and models of dryers, there is no 'one size fits all' instruction to guide you through it.

If my Samsung dryer belt was loose but still turning, will it stop the heat element? Because I had a problem earlier in the week with it heating. I took the back off and noticed the belt was freyed


Yes if the air flow is reduced because of a slipping belt that could cause the heating element to turn off due the temperature sensor being a high input. Remember the motor runs a fan as well as the dryer drum.

My whirlpool dryer stopped working today and will not put out any heat, do you know what might be the cause? Model # leq9858pwo


Short answer if the dryer drum still runs, but there is no heat: 90% it's one or both of the heating coils. 10% it's the control switch or relay.
If the dryer will still start and the drum will still turn, find instructions for how to test the heating coils. The test for the coils must be done with the dryer UNPLUGGED! It will involve taking a panel off the dryer.

I Like to know in what vltage that dryer works? 110 or 220?


this is 220, only small apartment sized machines are 110.
the 220 supplies one circuit for the heat and one for the motor to turn the drum

No heat coming in drum


Probably a bad heating element (which he will have to take it apart to see).
Sorry!

The heating compenent works, but drum won't spin


Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.

Motor not strong enough


The problem dosen't sound like the motor. Check to see if the drive belt is loose and slipping. This is the usual cause of the problem you describe. If not, the bearings for the drum may be going bad. The heating elements should turn off shortly if the drum stops so there is little danger of overheating.

Dryer drum wont turn


These units use two circuits to operate. It is entirely possible that the circuit breaker for one is open. The breakers are linked units...generally 30-40 amperes. Turn both off and then on.
