Use some brake grease and lube the wheel and belt in the far back left

Check the bearing behind the drum assembly, the part against the rear wall is probably worn so low there is metal to metal contact, if so replace bearing.....

Dryer barrel does not turn


If the motor comes on but the drum doesn't move the belt probably broke. On most dryers you can open it at the back with a couple of screws if the belts broken a new one can be bought and installed without much hassle

wonder if you are overloading the machine and the noise is the drive belt screeching. if it sounds similar to a loose fanbelt on a car, it could be drum bearings that are seizing up (check by manaually rotating the drum. if it spins freely its ok) or the drive belt is getting worn and needs replacing

My tumbler is not turning. It sounds like the motor is running but it's not spinning


the dryer is ran off a belt surrounding the entire drum and the belt also goes through a belt tensioner too. The tensioner provides to keep the belt on snugly. It sounds like the belt broke. I would go to Sears for they can get parts for yours. You will need a belt with the tensioners roller/bearing assembly. The roller wears out usually quicker than the belt so get that also.. These items are sold in a kit form in most cases for they are replaced as a set by 99 repairmen and do it yourselfers

The hard work is over! The old belt should pull out from the drum area if it is broken. There should be two ends to it now. Get a new belt and put it over the front of the tumbler. You should, (with a flashlight) be able to see where the old belt was running. Get the new belt close to that spot.. I believe your model ran with the smooth side of the belt to the drum.It will not look right to you, but the tensioner passes the belt through the pulley and motor pulley on the grooved side of the belt.Once the belt is on, reassemble the dryer front in reverse of disassembly.
