SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer heats but the drum doesn't rotate

There is usually a large belt that goes around the drum to turn it ...it is either fallen off the motor pulley , broke .....or the motor may be gone in it ....not sure if there are any fuses for the motor on your dryer .
If you can tip the dryer over the bottom is usually open and you can see the motor and belt from there

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer drum making noise



window.google_render_ad();There are many places & parts that could be causing your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy. To find out what is causing the noises, you need to find out where are the noises coming from.
Start the dryer and let it run for a while and listen to try to pinpoint where in the dryer the noises is coming from. Once you have an idea of the area, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet and take the dryer apart.
Below you will find the parts that you need to check when your dryer is noisy.
The drum baffles:

The drum baffles are use to tumble the clothes inside of the drum, in other words, the baffles job is to separate the pieces of laundry as the drum turns.
When the dryer is getting older and if you use the dryer a lot, the drum baffles holding screws will become loose. Loose drum baffles will cause noises. All you need to do, is to open the top panel and tighten the drum baffles holding screws.
The drum support rollers:

These dryers uses four drum support rollers, tow on the front and two on the rear. The job of the drum support rollers is to keep the drum tumbling smooth.
When the grease on one of the rollers dry out, the roller start to make squeaking noises and the roller bearing will start to wear out until the bearing on the roller is gone. When the bearing on the roller is gone, the noise will change from squeaking to a clanking noise.
The blower wheel:

The blower wheel is use to circulate the air inside of the dryer drum. The most common Whirlpool blower noises are cause by something falling inside of the blower housing and hitting the blower when the motor runs.
The Idler pulley:

The Idler pulley is use to apply the necessary tension on the belt. There are two types of idler pulleys, the pulley with the wheel and the pulley with the teflon slide. A bad idler pulley could cause a Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
The drive motor:

Worn out bearings on the motor will cause the motor to run kind of noisy. When the motor starts making noises, the solution to this problem is to replace the motor.
The belt:

The belt on most dryers is only about1/4 inch wide. These belts work very hard making the drum tumble. When the belt stretch just 1/2 inch more that it supposed to, the belt will start slipping and that could cause your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
As you could see, there are a lot of parts that could become noisy in your dryer. When your dryer starts making noises, make sure to check it out before it gets worse.

SOURCE: whirlpool,gas dryer will not heat up the drum

Problem could be the several components in the heating circuit but the thermal fuse is a common failure component. You will need a technician to diagnose this or learn how at repairclinic.com

if there is no air coming out of your vent on back of dryer then it would be likely your motor has gone out.

WHAT YEAR IS THIS DRYER MODEL LGC8858 EQ 3?


The year Whirlpool appliances were manufactured can be determined through the serial number and not with the model number. The second digit of the serial number tells the year and the two digits next to it is the week of manufacture. Divide these two digits by four and you get the approximate month the appliance was manufactured. Click on the link below for the list of Whirlpool Year Codes which is also applicable to some Kenmore, Roper, Maytag, and other Whirlpool-made appliances.

My Whirlpool clothes dryer model GEW9200LW0 stopped drying completely. The drum turns but no heat. It began slowing down the heating process approx. 2 years ago. Any suggestions?


Electric Dryer Does Not Heat
  • If your Whirlpool electric dryer is having trouble heating, you should check all of the thermostats, the thermal cut-off, all fuses and the electric heating element for continuity and proper connection.

Dryer Maytag LDE 9316 ACE -what is the capacity of that model dryer? Thank you!



bg_title_capflex.gif
Capacity is a key consideration when shopping for a dryer. The more you are able to dry in a single load, the less time and money you will spend doing your laundry. Most importantly, look for a dryer with approximately twice the cubic foot capacity of your washer.

Typical dryer capacity ranges from approximately 3.4 cubic feet (for a compact model) to over 7 cubic feet for an extra large capacitor

In addition to saving time by drying on fewer loads, and money on lower energy costs, a large capacity dryer often means spending less time once the laundry is dry. There is typically less wrinkling when clothes have more room to move around inside the drum.

Whirlpool brand offers dryers with a range of capacity and flexibility.

How can it be replaced a belt for a dryer LDE 5750 WHIRLPOOL?. I already open the top end, back wall and the tumbler is in my way.


You were halfway there when you got the top off. But you need to go thru the front instead of the back. With the top off, there should be a bolt on each top corner holding the front on (the bottom is just clipped in). After removing the bolts, fold the front out of the way (the door switch wires will still be connected). Removing the front will free the drum. Pay close attention to how the belt goes around the motor and tension pulley. You can remove the belt and drum now. Reassemble and you are done.

Kenmore Series 80 Heavy Duty Gas Dryer turns on but drum won't move - is this likely a belt problem? Dryer is about 12-13 years old. Model 75651


Good day,
Reach in, and see if you can move the drum. It will be a little stiff, but should turn.
If so, yes, it is probably a belt.

Look below. (Yes it is made by Whirlpool).
If hyperlink won't work, then copy and paste it in the address bar of your browser.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer not heating


The first thing to do would be to check if the element is broken. Most dryers have a couple of screws that hold the top, and it opens like the hood of a car. The next step is to remove the drum, usually a couple of screws holding the front.
