Drum will not turn unless pushing drum to give helping hand motor turns ok without belt on and the drum spins freely nothing jamming it.It makes a buzzing sound then i turn drum and ok until it stops

If the Drum within a Dryer (I assume that is what your talking about) is not freely splining; then there are two conditions that occur. 1. the drive motor may have over heated and the internal brushes may have bound up the rotational shaft. 2. the drive belt is defective.
Replace either of the two and it should work just fine.

Drum won't go round when loaded although will rotate by hand

Can you hear the drum motor running when you switch the machine on? You should hear it running and stopping periodically.
If the motor is running but not turning the drum then the drive belt is either broken or has become detached. It can be replaced by gaining access to the back of the machine.
If the motor is not running then it could be one of several problems - programmer mechanism not working, motor burnt out, motor brushes need replacing etc.

The dryer does not turn, but will turn by hand, how do you unlock heller cd55 dryer?

It won't tumble If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these: Belt Motor Door switch Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. Click here for a belt installation diagram Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor: Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor. Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

My dryer has power but the drum will not turn

Belt, Motor, motor start capacitor or Door switch. you going to have to open the back cover off and see what is taking place. check belt making sure good and tight, idler pulley may be worn also. If motor only making a hums sound when you press start it may be burnt out. you can check if the motor is good or bad by removing the belt and manually rotate the shaft motor pulley, if the motor is stiff and impossible to rotate manually, it also a sign the motor burnt out. if the motor turn and run freely without the belt, the problems maybe with the pulley or the drum, try to rotate the drum and making sure it rotate freely using very little effort. if door switch faulty, the unit will not work.

Maytag washer will not spin. motor overheats and drum won't turn

If it has a belt try loosening the belt and see if the transmission and pump will turn and are not stuck.
If they are they will have to be replaced. Try the motor and see if it turns freely with the belt loose or off. If they all turn freely check motor.

Dryer motor just hums

Sounds like the belt has been stretched and is not letting the motor turn the drum. If the motor is not turning at all then your motor is burnt out and needs ot be replaced
