You didn't provide much info on the machine (like make and model), but odds are either the belt or the motor is the cause.

Hope that helps...

Stopped in mid-cycle. drum will not turn even by hand, unloaded. Plastic/metal debris in filter.


If you have a front load washer, sounds like you do, by your description. If you can't turn the drum by hand and have foreign object within the pump filter, its time to replace the washer. It sounds like your spindle has cracked and the tub will no longer be suspended from the rear. Metal from the spindle and plastic from the basket (spin drum). Sorry for the bad news but its cheaper to replace the washer than fix the damage. Good Luck

My dryer has a high pitch squeal when starting up. It would go away after a few minutes when it warmed up but now the squeal is getting worse and lasting longer

Kevlar 'slip strip' on which the front of the drum runs may need to be replaced. Try turning drum gently by hand to guage whether or not it is turning freely.

Dryer drum won't turn, though dryer sounds as if it is

Don't run it like this any longer- I'm 99% sure you have a broken drum belt.
Unplug the dryer, take the inspection plate off the back, and see if the skinny little belt is held around the motor pulley apparatus.
The reason you shouldn't run it any more before determining status of the belt, is that the element(s) will burn out when the belt isn't in place.

Maytag med5740tq0 will heat up but drum does'nt turn

This could incidicate one or more problems. One of which could be that your belt is broken and no longer turns your drum. part number for the belt is 8066065 which is better known as a 341241. this is a common problem and can be replaced by removing the drum. The other possible cause of the drum not turning could be a blown fuse inside your home. This will allow the heater to work but not the motor since they both take 110v. If your fuses are okay, you could also have simply a burned connection. I would visibly inspect these and then have it checked by a technician if they check out.

Replaced belt still queeking even louder

If it's a really fast squeek, I'd suspect the motor bearings.... a little slower, I'd suspect the drum roller guides (more likely!) Try removing the belt, and turning the drum by hand. The other possibility is the blower fan - you can also tell with the belt removed and the dryer running..... it will be clear if it's the motor or the fan, without the drum turning.

My dryer drum is no longer turning when I press start.

When you turn it on, can your still hear the motor running but the drum doesn't spin? If so, yes, the belt could have broken or slipped off the pulley.

With my dryer, putting in a pair of shoes often makes it turn off. I hear it tumble for a while and then and then I hear a squeal and then the dryer turns off.

I have seen a device that can be put inside a dryer and adjusted to fit tight between the diameter of the drum and will allow you to put shoes on it. This solves the CLUMP - CLUMP - CLUMP issue.

If you don't hear the motor, its possible there is a blown fuse. have you checked your breaker panel too?

Good luck,
- Jim
