Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Why portable dryer heats but does not spin?


Open it up and check the belt inside. A belt is around the drum and around a pulley at the motor. If it is broken or has slipped off, then it wont spin.

Dryer is heating but drum is not turning. What is the problem?


I would say belt is broken, if you turn the drum by hand and it spins freely then that is the problem, here is a website that will help:

the belt,motor,idler assemblage, drum glides and rollers are all parts the will effect the rotation of the drum. Here is a website that will help:

My druer is heating but the drum wont spin


either the motor is defective or the drum belt is broken or off the pulleys, if you can't hear the motor start and run w/o belt attached and it just buzzes the motor start cap could be bad

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

The heating compenent works, but drum won't spin


Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.

Whirlpool Dryer wont spin


If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.
