The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around


More than likely, the belt is broken. Otherwise, the drum motor is shot. (That's not very likely though).

My speed queen gas dryer drum will not tumble what do you think is wrong?


Most likely the drive belt is broken. If you pop off the panel at the bottom of the machine, you will probably find a broken belt on the inside. The belt itself isn't very expensive and the overall repair is around $75 to have a repairman out.

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.

Dryer won't spin


step 1- remove the face of the dryer, then remove the cover for the fan, check to see if object is blocking the fan, if object is there , remove object, if not go to step 2

step 2- check to see if the belt is broken, if the belt is broken replace the belt.

step 3 - remove the belt from the motor and turn the dryer on, if the motor doesn’t turn then you need to replace the motor.
