SOURCE: my dryer runs and heats

Hi mandolins23...
Sounds like your venting system is plugging up, try these suggestions below...

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
Please take time to rate me.

SOURCE: My dryer makes a noise when turned on but

I think your belt is broken. Typically, a drier's top will pop off if you pry on it with a flat blade screw driver. If that happens, you can remove the front panel and set it aside to view the drum and the drive belt, motor assembly.

Of course you want to try to not mar the finish of the machine. Replacing the belt is simple to say but requires three hands. My suggestion is speak with the service department at the place you purchased your machine. They may offer additional advice for free. I am sure they can repair it simply and will allow you to observe so you can do it next time.

Thanks for using I hope this suggestiopn helps you to make a decision.

Fuse on asko dryer 7305 blows after a few minutes on

I assume you are talking about the reset under the little rubber plug on the back of the dryer? The most common cause for this is the very fine lint filter on these Asko's getting dirty and restricting airflow. It may LOOK clean, but unfold it, scrub the screen with a soft brush and dish soap, on all 4 surfaces then let it dry before using it. If this doesn't solve the problem, unhook the dryer vent and try running the dryer with the vent hose removed from the wall. If it doesn't trip then, you need to have your house vent cleaned out because it is restricting airflow. if THAT doesn't fix it, try removing the lower panel at the bottom, then remove the fan cover (kinda round and all the way to the left behind the panel) and checking to see if the blower wheel is clogged with lint, or if it has come loose and is not spinning at all. One of these is almost certainly your problem, unless this is a condensing style dryer. If that's the case then you probably just need to pull the condenser out and clean it.

Dryer drum doesn't spin

If the motor runs and the drum doesn't turn then most likely the belt is broken.

Whirlpool gas dryer (LGR8648PW1) doesn't stop spinning in automatic mode.

More than likely a bad timer assembly. They are usually easy enough to replace if you have basic mechanical skills. The part can be ordered from

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin

How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Dryer turns on but doesn't tumble

  • If you can hear your motor spinning, then it is most likely caused by a broken drum belt.
  • If you can hear your motor 'humming' like it it stuck, then you might have faulty 'motor start capacitor'.
  • If you cannot hear the motor, then it maybe the drying controller board or sometimes the motor itself.
All cases involve dismantling the dryer and best left to a qualified dryer mechanics: check your warranty as the unit may still be under warranty (in which case, call the manufacturer help desk for instructions).

Hope the information helps!

I have a L G and it does not spin dry the wash load How can this be fixed

Do you mean it doesn't spin at all...or it doesn't spin fast enough to dry the clothes?

If it will not spin at all you may have a loose belt or broken belt.
If it does not spin fast enough, you may have a loose belt or too latge a load.
