    I had to obtain additional instructions on accessing the drum belt, installing the belt, and reassemblying the panels.  Your instructions, while correct, were too vague.  They did put me on the right track, though.  WD

    Have put on one belt but it broke within a couple of weeks--now have another belt and want to know how it goes around the idler. It is a Whirlpool model number LE7080XSW1. Thank you for your help.

    Told my dryer mechanic who had previously fixed the dryer that this is an electrical fault rather than mechanical, is this correct ?

Remove panels to gain access to the drum belt and replace it. usually less than $10 repair for do-it-yourself.

I have a Whirlpool Gold senseon Model number GeX9868Jq1 I can feel the heat inside to Dromm but when I push start it just clicks It's a electric dryer

Unfortunately, it sounds like the motor, since you aren't hearing it run. Motor turns the drum by way of a belt.If motor is running, but drum not turning, it would be the belt... I would also say door switch, but then the heating element wouldnt be heating up. Slight chance it could be the control, but I doubt it. DW

When dryer starts the drum wont move..it is a Roper large capacity electric dryer non stackable

If the drum won't move but you can hear a motor running, the drive belt has probably slipped off of the drum or motor pulley or has broken. Try turning it by hand with the motor off and then turning the dryer on again.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run

So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Dryer motor

if the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.
