Question about Dryers

Open Question

Inglis Dryer Model IFR8200, spins and as normal the drum is supposed to spin then stop and then spin in the oposite direction, But this one when it stops and instead of spinning in the opposite direction the motor instead just begins smoking. I checked the drun rotation, it rotates freely without any resistances. By now i need to replace the Motor but am not sure what component controls the function: Spinning in the opposite direction. Is it the timer???? Thanks John

SOURCE: dryer stopped spinning,timer still ticking,cannot get to restart.

Can you still hear the motor turning? If the motor is running but the drum is not then it is probably a broken belt or there may be something blocking the drum from spinning. The first thing to check is if the drum will turn by hand. If so, the next thing to check is if the belt has broken or slipped off. Although it is a bit cumbersome to replace, it is easy to diagnose. Unscrew the screws holding the back of the dryer on and pull the cover off. Look at the pulleys on the motor and see if the belt is intact. If those solutions don't do the trick, let me know and I will try to give you other options.

SOURCE: Dryer Drum does not spin

SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE RIGHT. EASIEST WAY TO TELL IS PRY UP THE TOP PANEL. 1ST REMOVE LINT FILTER AND 2 SCREWS BEHIND FILTER ON TOP PANEL.. GET A FLAT BLADE SREWDRIVER AND TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE TOP PANEL THEIR R 2 BLK CLIPS ONE ON EACH SIDE PUSH IN AND THAT SHOULD RELEASE THE CLIPS ONCE YOU GET THE TOP UP. LOOK AT DRIUM IF YOU DONT SEE A BLACK BELT GOING AROUND TUB THEN BELT IS BROKE. PART # 341241 SELLS FR ABOUT 15-28.99. WE STK IT. ITS A VERY COMMON BELT. SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET LOCALLY. IF YOU NEED IT WE HAVE THEM.

sounds like a new drive belt is required. pull the machine out remove the mains supply!!!!
remove the top and look into the back of the machineif you cant see the belt them remove the back of the machine, it's like a small fan felt from a car it's either come off or disintegrated in which case you'll need a new one.

Drive Motor

The dryer drive motor turns the drum and the blower wheel to exhaust the air. If the dryer stops the motor might be defective. If the dryer stops and the dryer motor makes a humming noise there might be something caught in the blower wheel, or the drum might be binding. Try removing the belt from the motor and checking the blower wheel for obstructions. Also try rotating the drum by hand with the belt off, it should rotate freely. If the drum doesn't turn freely, determine what is causing it to bind. The dryer motor can't be tested easily. If the drum turns freely and the blower wheel is clear, and yet the dryer still keeps stopping mid-cycle the motor may be defective. it will need to be replaced. It is not serviceable.

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.

Drum Roller

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If they are worn out or start binding the motor can get overloaded and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, check to be sure the drum turns freely with the belt removed. If not, check the rollers. Do not lubricate the rollers or roller shaft, lubrication will attract lint and cause the roller bearings to wear out faster. If the rollers don't turn freely, replace them. The roller shaft can often be reused, unless it has worn down. Clean the shaft thoroughly before installing the new rollers.

Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The front of the dryer drum is supported by small pieces of plastic-like material. As the drum rotates, it slides on these plastic pieces. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, it may be that one or more of these plastic slides or glides has worn out. When they wear out the drum can start binding and put strain on the motor. The motor then shuts down and the dryer stops. Check the glides for wear and replace as needed.

Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. Over time this bearing will wear out and may cause several different problems. If the dryer stops during the cycle it may be that this drum bearing has worn out and is putting too much strain on the motor. If the belt is removed and the drum spins freely, the drum bearing is probably not worn out. If the drum bearing is worn out, there may be some grinding or squealing, and the drum will be hard to turn.

Dryness Control Board

The dryness control board shuts off the dryer when the clothes have reached the level of dryness selected by the user. If the dryer stops too early, the dryness control board might be defective. This is not very common and other possibilities should be checked first.

Kenmore Model 925 75 110 washing machine makes loud noises when the spinning cycle ends (as it stops spinning). Any ideas? Ease of repair ?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

There is also an excellent PDF document from Whirlpool describing how Direct Drive washers work.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

We has the same basic problem with a Kenmore direct drive washer. At the end of the spin cycle we heard a loud noise as the brake stopped the drum from spinning.

Sometimes, what can happen is that the brake will grab the brake drum, like a brake on a car suddenly locking a wheel.

The brake is supposed to slow down and stop the drum without locking.

We were able to spray a small amount of silicone spray inside the brake drum, which allowed the shoes to more gently grab the drum.

See GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

Remove the cabinet and look at the drum directly above the silver colored clutch assembly.

Using an spray can of silicone spray, and a directional tube, spray a very small amount into the brake drum.

Dryer Problem


i dont think any thing is wrong with it if it stops for a few secs then starts spinning the other way its supposed to now if it stops and doesnt reverse at all you have a promblem it dont have brakes like a car so in order to stop to reverse the drum it lowers voltage to the motor and thats the groaning your hearing it has to stop completly to reverse or it would trash the drive motor so its programed with enough deley to make sure the motor has stopped the reversing action is supposed to give you less wrinkles
