My kenmore dryer wont start up, makes a humming noise and drum will onlt turn clockwise when trying manully


You likely have a broken belt. A new one should fix you up. If you take it apart to change the belt, please be certain you clean the lint out of every part of the machine. It builds up inside it where you cannot reach without taking the whole thing apart.
Be blessed.

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.

The dryer was making shrill noises for some time, then a thump noise, now the drum wont turn. I think it is the belt, but the belt is still intact... Where on the drum does the belt go? and what else might...


The belt may have jumped off the tension pulley. Check to make sure the belt is tight around the drum and all pulleys, then check whether all pulleys and rollers turn freely.

Put new belt on dryer but it wont turn and i can smell burning and the drum wont turn


sounds like the belt may be bound somewhere, I would take it back apart and see if I can turn everything by hand. If everything turns freely then I would reinsert drum, hook belt up and see it I could turn the drum with my hands, it will turn but not to freely. Hope this helped tim

Past few days, dryer got very noisy. Then drum


The noise is coming from a moving part. There are only a few that normally cause a problem. Also the dryer drum not turning freely is what broke your belt. Here is what I would replace. Drum rollers, Drum slides and idler pulley. You can check these parts before you replace them. If the drum rollers don't spin real easy, replace. If the idler pulley does not turn easy, replace. If the drum slides are worn, replace. Your model may be one with a front drum bearing. If it looks worn, replace.
You may be able to take dryer apart, try turning drum. Listen for the noise and notice if the drum is hard to turn. If so, you may be able to determine if the problem is in the front or back of drum. Keep on mind that the noise might have been the belt slipping due to the drum being hard to turn. Either way, when you have it repaired, it should run with the noise. Good luck.

Front loading kenmore 86983110 makes loud noise when turned on. Think that there is a problem with the belt. I am tryng to take it apart now and do not know how to find the belt


The belt is located at the back of the appliance.

To remove belt you have to remove a panel at the back, on some model you remove top panel first.

The belt does not make loud noise. Loud noise when spinning is usually caused by bad drum bearing, located at the back of the drum.

Regards.
