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.

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

Belt problem - when we began to vacum, we heard a sound, the rollers stopped moving

Sounds like your belt may have broken, or you have something jammed in there preventing the brush roller to spin. But most likely you're problem is a broken belt which is a simple fix that takes no time to 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.

LG Tromm DLE5977W Dryer about 1 1/2 yrs old. Running small load on normal and we heard a funny clunk noise and than the dryer shut off. When i went to look, power was still on with 20 min. left on timer....

3 screws on back of dryer to remove the top. Top slides back about 2 inches and lifts off. Dryer drum should have a thin drive belt around it. Pull on belt. If broken you will know. If loose, then it's off pulleys. Sounds like a broken belt. Check or for dyi videos on how to replace.
