During the spin cycle there is a very loud knocking noise,


Could be the spider arms are broken. You can confirm this by turning the tub by hand, if you hear any kind of thumping sound as you turn the tub, then the spider is broken. The spider is the support arms that hold the wash tub to the drive shaft. It's very expensive to repair.

If there is no thumping sound when you turn the drum, it could be that one of the supports or spring is broken. Hope this helps.

My dryer heats up but does not tumble. I replaced


Sounds like worn tub back bearing.
take the belt off and spin the tub by hand to see if it is binding.
check that the pulley isnt loose on the tub back and also the motor pulley, feel if the motor spins free.
Finally check the tub itself for objects poking through or lodged in the outer tank.
Good luck

Sounds as if something has the tub locked. Remove the top of dryer so you can get look at the tub. You may have to remove the tub to locate the problem.

Kenmore dryer will not turn on


Sounds like a classic broken Belt. You'll have to take the front or top off to gain access to the belt and it is wrapped around the TUB. If you can pull it up and down with no problems its the belt or the idler tentioner that keeps the belt tight.

Possibly its also the tub rolers or bearings but if you can push the tub from the inside by hand you will know if its in this area or not. If it turns freely then the belts off or broke cause when its on and tight you anct make it move very far. Important not to make the tub turn back wards too far especially if its tough to move. If its loose to move then either way usually dosnt hurt anything.
