Dryer drum won't turn


Hi

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I have an eziloader 6kg dryer, the drum does not spin but the heater element turns on. How do I check if the belt has come off?


can you turn the drum reasonably easy whilst the machine is empty and off . If you can than the drum has no load and the belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley or the drum . Disconect power cord from socket and remove back off machine ..You know should be able to access drive belt and either replace belt onto drum and drive motor or purchase and fit new belt . It is a good idea to replace a belt that has slipped off and is not broken - belts stretch and its likely to come off again . If this is one with a sealed back then turn it on side and remove base to reach belt .

Dryer heats but drum does not turn when the start button is pushe


You need to check the drum belt. With dryer empty, reach in and give it a spin. If the belt is good, it will stop in 1/2 turn or less when released. If the belt broke, it will spin almost a full turn.

How to attache drive belt to drive drum .belt will not reach.loosening bolts that hold motor on did not help.forced on but belt twisted on drum.


Remove rear cover of washer, and top cover also, tilt washer towards you, get someone to hold washer steady, fit belt round motor pulley,and slowly feed belt round drum pulley, watch your fingers, keep feeding belt round oulley, turning drum at same time, it will be tight, but persist, and belt will go on.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

DRUM NOT TURNING ON BEKO TUMBLE DRYER. JUST OUT OF WARRANTY.


Check your drum belt, sometimes this belt is broken or slipped off the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
Also could be a faulty motor..
Another thing to try is to turn the drum by reaching inside of the drum and turning it by hand 1/4-1/2 turn with the dryer off. Then turn the dryer on again and see if it works.
Motors will sometimes get a dead zone in them and this help move it from the dead zone.

Washer won't spin, motor sounds like its working, belt is fine...what do I check or do?


The belt may look fine, but if the motor is spinning, then the belt isn't transferring the motion to the drum.

First, make sure you can turn the drum by hand. Turn off the power. Reach inside the drum, grab the opposite sides and turn. If it moves more than a few inches, then it isn't the drum that's stuck. Possibly the belt tensioner has slackened and needs to be adjusted.
