My dryer stopped spinning. It's only 3 years old. Think it might be the belt? Is it easy to fix?

My kennywood 90 series dryer about 10 yrs old


It could be a bad thermal fuse that is attached to the heating element housing. If it is bad, on most models it will not allow the dryer to start.

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling


Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

Dryer is getting very noisy. Does this mean there is a problem ?


The most common reason for the dryer drum to stop spinning is if your drum belt has snapped or has been worn down completely. This is an easy fix and simply involves buying a replacement belt and feeding it through the pulleys and on the roller and then back around the middle of the drum.

The rollers could have worm out causing the drum to spin in a bumpy and noisy manner , these are the little circle shaped objects your dryer actually sites and can usually be replaced depending on how old your dryer is. The pulleys could also be broken causing problems.

The motor could have died after many years of use if the drum is not moving at all and if it is moving the motor bearing could be off causing to spin around very roughly and sometimes scratch against the sides of the dryer compartment.

Noises coming from the dryer when its plugged in and spinning could also be due to a huge amount of dust built up around the dryer drum. Sometimes cleaning out the inside of your dryer and returning the drum to the correct position can fix this problem.

Screeching noises are not a good sign and sometimes its a sign that you drum is slowly cutting into the sides of your dryer which could permanently put your dryer out of use if its continues.i think i will work out

My dryer won't turn. The motor runs when you push start but the drum doesn't turn. I can turn it by hand and it will run.

What would make a dryer stop tumbling? It is about ten years old now. It turns on alright but just won't spin anymore. Its a MayTag so shouldn't it work forever! LOL


Probably just a broken belt. Unplug the dryer and open it up (PIX BELOW) clean out the dryer and inspect the wheels idler and blower cage.The belt is probably gone after 10 years. Here are some repair pix

Whirlpool Dryer wont spin


If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.
