    My Roper Electric Dryer Model # REX6634PQO when turning it on makes a loud noise, belt not turning the drum ? also when I turn the dryer to the setting, I no longer have to push the start button. I shut the breaker off thinking that would re set the start button, no luck. Am I looking at 2 different problems ? the belt and the start button ?

Below is a link that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information. This uses a Whirlpool diagram but your dryer should match closely since it is manufactured by Whirlpool
http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_15.asp
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

My dryer only makes a humming sound


Remove the drum belt & start it if it hums and starts hard you will need a motor. If it don't hum check the drum rollers & glides on the front. Check the idler pully and belt. Drum rollers should turn easy if not either replace of try oiling them with some good oil after cleaning them real good. Hope this helps

Today our dryer quit drying. It hums but is not tumbling.


Dryers are belt driven. Something has locked the drum or motor, and that is why you hear the humming sound. With the dryer turned off, reach inside the drum and try to turn it. It should turn pretty freely. There will always be some drag. If you need a lot of effort to turn the drum, then it is time to investigate what is causing the drag. Probably, something has gotten wedged between the drum and the front wall of the dryer.

If you cannot find anything there, then it could be helpful to remove the outer shell from the dryer and investigate further to find the source of the drag. This requires some mechanical skill, so think carefully if you want to try it or call a service company or simply replace the dryer. A used dryer can cost $100 or less.

Our Maytag gas dryer drum doesn't turn. Replaced belt. Heats up but drum isn't turning


There are three possible reasons why the drum doesn't turn.
  1. Broken belt. You replaced the so in this case it's not.
  2. Door switch. The dryer will not operate if teh door switch is defective. It is inside the drier main housing near the door frame. You need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Replace if defective.
  3. Motor. If the motor hums when the start button is pressed, the motor maybe burned-out. Check the dryer motor:
  • Check the blower fan housing for obstruction and manually turn the motor shaft.
  • If the motor is very stiff or cannot be turned manually, you need to replace the motor.
  • If the motor rotate freely, run the motor without the belt. If it runs fine, there maybe problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum.
  • Rotate the drum by hand. If it is difficult to rotate it, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley. Reassemble the dryer and try it again.
  • If the motor hums but does not run on it's own even without the belt,but can be turned freely by hand, you need to replace the motor start capacitor or the motor itself.

Not turning


Un plug the dryer and take the top off via the screws at the back.
Is the belt still round the drum?
If not belt needs replacing and the drum needs checking

If the belt is still in tact, then the capacitor may need replacing.which helps to start the drum. to test this replace the top and turn the dryer on is there a hum?
You will need an approved engineer to carry out more tests or repair

When we push the on button, you can hear a hum,


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has broken. the hum sound is the motor turning. Does it still get hot in the drum? If so then you need a replacement belt ($15-$25).You can open the rear or the dryer to confirm the belt is broken. Be sure to unplug from the wall outlet to avoid electrical shock.

If the drum is not turning and the hum is a nice quiet hum, then the belt on the drum has broken. The hum you hear is the motor turning without the belt.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Dryer motor just hums


Sounds like the belt has been stretched and is not letting the motor turn the drum. If the motor is not turning at all then your motor is burnt out and needs ot be replaced

dryer won't run, but hot air blow and humming when turned on
Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt. It will take care of your problem

When I try and start my ge dbb3300eaoww dryer it buzzes as if it wants to start if I spin it with my hand it will work. I put a new belt on it and it does the same thing.
Motor start switch is bad. This is typically replaceable with out replacing the motor.
Will take care of the problem.


My drum will sometimes stop turning in the middle of a cycle, and the motor just hums. I pause the dryer, open the door, rotate the drum, unplug and plug the electrical, and then it will usually complete the cycle. Does that mean the belt is "occasionally" slipping? How do I check this?
Replace the belt. It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time. This will take care of the problem.
