If the drum won't move but you can hear a motor running, the drive belt has probably slipped off of the drum or motor pulley or has broken. Try turning it by hand with the motor off and then turning the dryer on again.

My GE stackable washer is pouring out water while filling up, when spinning makes horrible noise and tub goes crazy


The issue is that a shock or spring that balances the tub has come loose and pulled a hose off when it broke. So the shocks or the springs are bad. The hose might be able to just be put back on.

Could be the belt which connects motor and dryer drum. Could be the drum support rollers. Replace both either way -- common problem.

My Roper dryer worked fine until my basement flooded about 6 inches of water on floor. Now my dryer just hums when I try to start the dryer. The heat does come on. When I spin the drum and hold in the door...


It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.

No heat, motion, but light is on and timer ticks


Check the thermal fuse on the blower housing. It is for over heat condition and non resettable.

When I turn on the dryer you can hear the juice going thru like its about to start but nothing happens, drum doesnt move. I checked, its not stuck. dryer only 1.5 yrs. old- happened suddenly


most of the time on your model it is the dryer main fuse that pops,you can pop the top and look to the right of the drum on the back wall all you will see a little round fuse,you can get it from your local appliance parts store for around $10,if it happened all of the sudden could have just been a power surge pop it-mike

Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin


Yank the filter out the top. Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing. Use a putty knife to pop the top and then remove the screws holding the front on. NOTE: raise up on the front panel slightly so you won't damage the bottom clips. Get the front out yer way and remove the drum. Clean out the dryer and oil the rollers and idler. Use this handy ROUTING GUIDE to see how to put the belt back.
