It sounds like the drum is frozen. The squealing is from the motor slipping on the belt. There may also be something keeping the belt from tightning. Try these links:

The dryer sheets soften during the drying cycle to release the softening material. Air flow through the dryer drum causes the sheets to "glue" themselves to the vent outlet. If you have the dryer disassembled for service, you will find a sticky residue on the back of the vent.

Hello Bob;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I assume you are not referring to the lint filter on the top of your dryer.

Behind your dryer is a elongated hot air distribution manifold. Looking from the back of your dryer it is on the left. The manifold is fixed to the back of the dryer with screws. Unscrew the screws and remove the cover.
In the bottom of this manifold is where air flow blockage occurs. Clean this inlet out.
At this location you will not be exposed to any electrical or moving parts.
Cleaning this outlet will enhance the dryer air flow and dryer performance.

This is very likely a relay problem. There is a black relay in the control head that engages when the start button is pressed. The relays tend to go bad now and then. They are a simple replacement and cost less than $15 or so.

Could be your gas valve.

The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.


If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.
