Sounds like the belt that turns the drum needs to be replaced.

White knight gas tumble dryer


On most clothes dryers, whether gas or electric, the drum is rotated by a belt, which runs off a motor. The most common reason for it not to tumble is that the belt has broken.Someone needs to replace that belt. If, however, when you start it up , you do not hear a humming sound whilst pressing your ear to the top of the machine, the motor itself may not be turning, which could also be the problem. Be blessed.

Dryer wont tumble


i think the belt is slipping bad on your dryer,,
what puzzels me is you say you can here the motor hum? is it a hum? or a buzz?? if its a buzz then its more likley to be the motor as its past its best and it needs if it needs a new motor as well, it would work out cheeper to buy a new tumble dryer

Won't run


If "won't run" meaning; "does not tumble/spin" this can be a couple things;

1. Defective Drive Belt (Likely): Broken or jammed (not properly attached to motor/pulley). Nothing will happen when pressing start; unit will not heat or rotate/tumble. "Normal ware and tear"

2. Defective Door Switch (Very likely) - Very common due to constant "slamming" of door. The door switch enables power to be passed through-out machine when door closes for safety purposes. Switch located at door area and can be tested for continuity. "Nothing will happen when pressing start; unit will not heat or tumble/turn". * Fairly easy to replace; two mounting screws.

3. Defective/Jammed Motor (Rare, but possible): You may hear a "humming noise" and burning smell. Also, excessive lint in blower housing may jam the motor from rotating. "Does not come on; does not tumble/turn"

Remember to disconnect power from unit before servicing.
