Funny thing, is that a belt turns the drum just like a fan belt turns on a car. maybe you could start there?

My cabrio dryer wed7600xwo is no longer drying right, I have to run loads 3 times to get them dry. What could the problem be?


This dryer has 2 belts. A smaller belt operates the blower. The nut tends to back out and the small belt falls off. Here is the result:

Look around on my foggy site for your service manual. Let me know

Dryer won't spin


Someone is going to have to get inside to see if the belt (it should have one around the drum) is broken or the motor that drives it is seized, etc.

Need to see if drum turns and if too freely my money would be the belt.

    Clothes dryer will not start


    sounds as if your motor has tightened-up or seized from heat and age bearing failure which it would cause excessive current draw at start-up if you can access the motor unplug unit then remove belt and spin motor pulley is should turn freely and coast to a stop if it seems tight the bearings are dried out

    You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum .
    The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD

    Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


    there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
