This dryer is belt driven. You did not mention if the motor was running or not but, I am going to assume that the motor is in fact running and the drum is not turning. There is not a belt safety switch on this dryer so if the belt breaks the motor will run but the drum will not turn.

The idler (item5) of this drawing:

See routing here: http://www.repair-help.com/kb/index.php?article=105

The drive belt is item 5 this link:

The top must be opened and the front panel removed to install the belt.
Here is a link to step by step "how to" instructions.

Make sure to inspect the rear drum rollers wile you have the dryer open. Item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560

Flat drum rollers or hard to turn rollers will cause the new belt to fail prematurely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Barrel isn't turning.


I believe you will find the belt is broken.
There is a motor which is supposed to turn a belt, which in turn drives the drum.
If you wish to repair ir yourself, a letter to "Fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the steps.
Be blessed.

Tip

Troubleshoot Non-Retracting Lens Due to Camera Drop


<span>Remove the batteries from your digital camera and leave them out for a few minutes. If you are using rechargeable batteries, make sure the batteries have a full charge before placing them back into the digital camera. It is recommended that you charge the batteries for at least 6 hours. If you are using regular AA or AAA batteries, make sure you are using brand new batteries of the same brand. Turn the camera back on to see if the lens will retract. If that doesn't work, turn the camera back off and try turning it back on while you are pressing the function or OK button.<br />If the batteries were low when the camera was dropped, the lens may not retract properly until the camera is reset. Remove the memory card from your digital camera and install new batteries. Do not put the memory card back into the digital camera and turn the digital camera back on. You will get an error message regarding the memory card, but that is okay. With some digital cameras, leaving the memory card out will trigger a reset within the digital camera.<br /></span><span>If you have an audio/video cable (AV), insert that cable into the digital camera and turn it on. By using an AV cable, the LCD screen will not power on, which means there will be more battery power available to the digital camera. If any dirt got into the digital camera when you dropped it, the extra power may help the camera retract the lens.</span> <span>Place your digital camera on its back on a hard surface. The lens should be pointed towards the ceiling. While pressing the shutter button, turn the digital camera on. The idea behind this concept is that the camera will try to autofocus, which may help seat the lens barrel pins back into their slot.<br /><b><br /></b><br />It is possible that when you dropped your digital camera, dirt, sand particles, etc. may have lodged themselves into the lens barrel. Gently blow around the lens barrel to knock lose any particles. Using a microfiber cloth, wipe off the lens and try to wipe as deep into the lens barrel as you can. You can also try using compressed air and blowing it in the gaps around the lens barrel. Be careful not to blow any of the compressed air onto the lens itself, as the pressure of the air may damage your lens. The idea here is that if there are any particles lodged in the lens barrel by the lens mechanism, you will be able to knock them lose.<br /></span>

Unlock scooter seat


Try some lock cleaner\ lubricant, use liberally, press down gently on the seat locking latch. If that doesn't work try shocking the mechanism with my favorite tool, a rubber mallet. If the key turns that part of the mechanism works. Put the key in to the release position. Go to where the latch is, use a bright light, see if the latch is engaged, Usually this kind of lock uses a hook latch. The hook is literally apart of the key barrel so if the barrel moves the latch hast to be moving too. Check the chair itself that its not stuck. WARNING Lubricate with pure silicon spray only it wont stain your chair. Lub all rotating joints and see if you can move it.
Hope this helps

The agitator doesn't seem to turn.


Hello,

If only your experiencing a agitate problem and your washer spins ok the most likely problem is going to be with the little thing that fit inside of the upper barrel of the agitator called the dogs that are worn out and not catching.

This tip i wrote is about replacing the agaitator dogs.

The ignition switch seized up. how do you remove the tumbler


you will have to split the ignition barrel, using either a hammer and small thin chisel or an old screw driver, if you split both side opposite the barrel will fall out, it will in some cases leave the barrel stalk in the black box (the electrical black plastic box at the other side of the barrel housing) to remove this turn with a screwdriver to either position 1 or position 2, at the front of the barrel housing is a release pin hole which will need a small allen key or pot rivet pushing into it to release the barrel stalk, remove with pliars or with flat blade screw drive, place key in new barrell hold thumb over secure pin holding it into the new barrel, then gently turn key 90 degrees, and offer into barrel housing, ensure the secure pin is at all time still into the barrel, slide the barrel into houseing slowly until you mate up the barrel stalk to the black box, and slide in until you hear the secure pin click into place, turn key back to zere and remove slowly, the new barrel is fitted. should take about an hour from start to finish, if it was not seized no more than 15 min to complete. hope this helps.
