Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

Whirlpool dryer was making loud squeaking noise. Now it is not turning at all. Makes a noise when you turn it on, but stops completely.


Check the drum belt. Check the drum rollers on the back & glides on the front that the drum rides on also check the idler pully. Check the felt the drum rides on in case it came loose and won't let the drum turn. Did it hum when you started it if so could be the motor. Good luck

Check the belt. You may have to open the machine up to look. if the belt is ok turn the drum by hand and see if the motor pulley is also turning. While you are in there look for foreign objects that have wedged against the drum preventing it from turning.
