Hello there and welcome to fixya The most common problem with these are the motor or the motor bearings or rollers and next is clothes getting caught between the drumb and the shell of the unit Here is some troubleshooting help for you listed below MotorIf 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
Might just be a belt which is real easy to replace, no tools needed:
Take that belt off there and check the stiffness of the pump. These will lock up or get stiff without even leaking. If that pump seems fine check to see if the main drive pulley is properly releasing the tub in the direction of spin. Their are 2 marks on the pulley, the drum should release in between the two points. if not then the thrust bearing kit needs to be replaced.
Hello, Here are a few things to check. If you don't feel comfortable performing these check, please have a repair person come in and check it.
* Broken belt. Open dryer and see if belt is still wrapped around the drum. Pull on the belt to make sure it's not just hanging there. Inspect belt condition. Do not apply spray adhesive in this case: replace the belt. If belt is broken, look for contributing causes for failure such as worn drum rollers, damaged felt kit, or stiff idler roller.
* Motor burned out. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer. If motor runs but is noisy and motor is unable to turn the drum when the drum belt is threaded back on the motor pulley, then replace the motor.
If the drum is very stiff to turn could be the drum bearings shot which would account for the broken belt, replace belt and it liable to break shortly after again. hover are known for there bad bearings and they cost a small fortune.
check it out have a look and see if there is nothing jaming the drum inside, i am certain your belt has gone and maybe down to the stiff drum making belt break, replace belt but bare in mind it may break again if the drum is too stiff.
choice is yours really. bearing kits cost more than 50 quid in general
