There are 2 catches in the front corners about an inch in take a putty knife and push in to release the top. Also take out the 2 screws under the lint filter. Lift up the top. You should see the belt or not. Belt there pull on it to see if it isn't broke. Belt not there broken belt. To replace belt need to take of the front panel. 2 screws in the cabinet top corners. Take them out then front will come forward then you need to lift it up off some little catches on the bottom. Then you should be able to see where the belt goes.

My n5300 heats up in the buttons and fails to start why?


Might be a broken belt. open the door and press in on the door switch then start is up and see if the drum turns is what I would do. Youtube has lots of videos which show how to replace a broken dryer belt. n5300 don't sound like a model number most models numbers for american dryers have (exam.GLN5300kQ1) sorta like that

My dryer drum will not turn. Seems to heat but drum not turning


Most likely, your belt has broken.

Without a model number, I cannot say for sure, but this is almost always something anyone with a modest knowledge of things mechanical can fix by themselves.

Try going to:

http://www.repairclinic.com

...with the make and model number of your machine. They have videos that show how to change dryer belts for many machines.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

Heat ok but no rotation, if belt broken where it located for kenmore 80 siries


If the dryer is still heating, but the drum does no turn, this is commonly attributed to either a broken drive belt or seized drive motor. Please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the door opening), so I can determine how your dryer is configured. All dryers are not assembled the same and will come apart for maintenance depending upon the features provided.

The dryer turns on and heats up but the drum will not turn. the belt is on but I can pull it up about 6 inches. Why won't it work?


Your belt has slipped off of the idler pulley or the spring that puts tension on the idler pulley bracket is broken or came off of the bracket.
I will send you a link to a website to help you out on the routing of the belt.
Please rate me

Does a Kenmore Series 80 have a drum belt . The dryer does not spin. Can't find the drum belt


Yes, it has a drum belt. If you can't see the belt wrapped around the exterior of the drum, more than likely it has broken and is wrapped around the drive motor shaft, or lying on the interior cabinet bottom. If the dryer still heats, but the drum does not turn, this is probably why. Please post back with your model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and I can tell you how to access it and/or replace it.

Model PYE2300 AYW the dryer turns on and provides heat but the drum does not spin


your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.

Drum will not turn


YOUR BELT ON YOUR DRYER IS BROKEN. THAT IS WHY YOUR DRUM WON'T SPIN. YOU CAN BUY A NEW BELT FOR YOUR DRYER AT ANY PLACE THAT SELLS APPLIANCES.
