Thank you for contacting

The problem could be a faulty belt sensor switch. Open dryer from the back, switch is on bottom left side. It is white and has a black arm with a spring on it. It is a safety feature that, in the event the belt breaks, the dryer will shut off. If the belt is not broken wiggle it and try to start the dryer .See if it works.

The drum doesn't turn but it heats fine

With this model, it is usually the belt, has either broken or come off, the drive pulley.
It is a difficult job to do, but it could be done DIY. You will need to obtain a service manual, and the belt to do so. (You would need to obtain a service manual first, to be able to obtain the part number for the parts required, as this is the only place this info exists)
If you do not wish to DIY, then please contact a Bosch service center, and ask for a "Quote" for the repair. When the serviceman calls.
Below is a DIY website to assist you in troubleshooting the exact cause, as although it is usually just a belt, it also maybe, the Motor, the main board,,sensors, the list goes on...

Frigidaire dryer tub will not turn

It sounds as thou the dryer drive belt has either broke or slipped off the motor drive pulley.

To determine which is the case, you'll need to unplug the dryer from the wall outlet (safety first!) OR turn off the gas valve too. Now pull out the dryer so you can remove the rear service access panel at the bottom of the dryer. Once you've removed the access panel, get down and look into the dryer with a flashlight and see if you can see the electric motor. Now see if you can see the drive belt around the motor pulley, or if the belt is broken and has fallen into this compartment.

If the belt is not on the pulley, grab hold of it and see if you can spin/rotate it around the drum, if you can do this all the way around, the belt is likely still good (check for damage as you slide the belt around).
You should be able to get the belt onto one side of the pulley and with your hand, carefully rotate the motor drive pulley to get the belt back on the drive pulley.

If the belt is broken, you'll need to install a new drive belt, which will take some further instructions to perform and will be made eaisier if you can provide the full model number for your dryer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation

The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer will not dry - drum will not turn

Just happened to mine also. The problem was that the Idler Pulley came loose from the drive belt. There is a switch on the idler pulley so that if there is no tension on it, the motor will not start and you will have the symptoms you describe. To reattach the Idler Pulley, remove the back plate surrounding the dryer exhaust. This will give you access to the Pulley. If the belt broke (unlikely with a new dryer such as yours), the fix is more involved. This dryer is the same as the Maytag MDE6700 - you can do a search for a service manual for that model and you can see the details. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Series 80

You can find an exploded view at Sears Parts Direct, as well as get P/N's for the parts needed. I suspect the roller assembly came apart which caused the belt to fail.

You will need your Model number to locate the exploded view. If you can not figure out the routing from that, then order the service manual from Sears. It will show the routing and describe how to assemble and test most all aspects of the appliance.
