When i try to start my dryer it clicks to turn on but doesnt fire the drum


Reach in and turn the drum by hand if you can do so with very little resistance then the belt may be broken or off the motor.

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.


Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

How to use the dryer rack in dryer ??? how to set up so doesnt spin.


The dryer rack should hook to the bottom of the door opening(using the lip of the door). If the rack is properly placed the drum should be able to turn without touching the dryer rack. Some dryers have the option of turning off the drum. If your dryer does not have this button or a dryer rack position on the timer dial then you cannot turn off the drum.

Husband just changed belt on dryer, and drum still doesnt turn


While you have the drum out check the motor to see if it runs. It could be you have a faulty motor.
If the motor is running then you may have a faulty timer or start switch
Good luck,
I hope this helps

When dryer is turned on , it hums but the drum doesnt turn. It smells like heating element is working, belt is on correctly but drum will not turn. Any suggestions? Thank uou


sounds like the bearing the drum rides on is bad. that will cause the breaker to trip as the motor strains to turn the drum on the bad bearing.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

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
