Hello. When the drum won't turn the problem is generally the belt. Replace both the belt and the tension wheel and u will be as good as new. J.

Barrel isn't turning.


I believe you will find the belt is broken.
There is a motor which is supposed to turn a belt, which in turn drives the drum.
If you wish to repair ir yourself, a letter to "Fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the steps.
Be blessed.

Electric dryer heats up and blows air but doesnt dry my clothes


I would check to see that the lint/filter isn't completely clogged up. This could make the dryer warm without allowing it to do its job of drying the clothes.
Also, is the drum spinning? If not, it could be indicative of other problems.

I have a whirlpool duet dryer and I can feel the heating element heat up but the drum won't turn any suggestions. Thanks


I had a similar problem with my dryer, if the heatin element is workin but the drum itself isn't turning it is probably a broken belt i the back, it is usually an easy fix and if you have a warranty on your dryer then you could call the maintance and they can fix it fir you covered under you warranty, if not you can usually find the belt at most hardware or appliance shops, and fix it yourself easily. It is located in the panel at the back of your dryer. Hope this helps you some

Does Not Shut Off


1st go the the house breaker (dbl breaker) for the dryer and shut it off and turn it back on, your dryer runs on 220 volts of power but if the breaker is partially tripped it may be only running on 110 volts which is only enough power to turn the lights on and to turn the drum the element needs 220 volts to turn on. If it still doesn't heat after resetting the breaker then you may need a heating element or thermostat. The dryer isn't shutting off because it isn't detecting the clothes are getting dry so once you fix your heating problem the dryer should start shutting off on its own again.

Timer knob not turning and its not heating up


If you are setting the knob to begin a cycle AND the drum turns when you start it AND the timer knob does not advance, the timer is likely defective.

Some dryers with truly automatic cycles (using moisture or temperature sensors) will not advance the timer if there is a no-heat condition due to a bad thermostat or heating element. This would show as the dryer tumbling a load forever and the clothes are cold and wet when checked.

If the dryer will not do anything at all AND the timer knob does not advance, check the power (circuit breaker/fuse), then the dryer door switch. When the door switch is defective or the door isn't fully closing, it stops everything, period. There is a thermal fuse on some machines that will also cause this problem.
Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Blower does not blow on profile dryer GE Profile dryer drum turns heats but does not dry


the clip that holds the fan on the back shaft of the motor may have broken so the fan isn't turning, check that , but first check the duct and make sure that you don't have a ball of lint clogging the vent,, also check the venting all the way out of the house,, clean the overhang of the outside vent cover, they get moist and collect lint

My kenmore 87872800 dryer wont spin. everything else is working but drum wont spin.


Left the top of the dryer top, check to see if the belt isn't broke or loose, if that is in tact try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns easily. if not, the bearing in the back of the drum needs replaced. this is easy to replace, remove the drum by removing the dryer top and then remove the belt, and the drum slides up out of the machine. replace the bearing then reassemble dryer.

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter


Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
