Samsung dryer hums but the drum does not turn


It sounds to me like the drive belt that goes around your dryer tub has broken.

The back of the dryer will need to be removed to gain access to the problem.

Dryer not spinning


Not sure what brand or model your dryer is but it sounds like the belt is broken, so you'll need to lift the top of the dryer up and very this.

Drum of maytag dryer does not turn it was working,I turned it by hand,and I heard a metalic noise and now it does not turn


It sounds like the belt has jumped off the pulleys, or possibly it has broken. You will need to take the dryer apart and remove the drum to get a new belt on.

MY LG DISHWASHER AND DRYER ARE DUDS


Hello,Sounds like a mechanical obstruction somewhere :->. Possible bad rollers or idler pulley. This could have snapped belt. Need to removed front door panel and lid to get at it. Open the door and rotate the inside drum by hand and see if it moves freely. If it does, you may rollers are probably good. Turn on power and listen for the motor turning on. If you hear a low hum then possible idler pulley or belt issue.LE error on DW - no quick fix here. I heard of wiring issues on the LG's, broken wires, that go from the control panel down to the motor/sensors/etc that result in this error code. I'm not up to speed on the LG dishwashers yet so maybe someone else can contribute.Rich

I repaired my broken fan belt with a drop of super glue - there is virtually no load on the belt and it now works perfectly again. A 30 sec quick fix.

Stopped tumbling


First make sure your belt is broken.
Take a putty knife or a old CD and insert it between the top and the front panel about 2 inches in from the sides where the top and front come together.
Push the clips towards the back of the machine while pulling up on the top.
Once it is open you can tell if the belt is broken or not.
It you see no belt around the drum it is broken.
If you see a belt around the drum pull on it carefully.
If it does not come loose it is not broken.
After you do this, let me know the result.
We will then move on to step #2.

Kenmore 90 plus series dryer won't work


Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:

It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.
