Drum won't turn

Smells like a snake crawled up into the motor and my son turned it on....now it hums and drum won't turn...anything special I need to worry about  before I get in there? It's unplugged.

Heats but will not tumble, I think I need to replace the belt. How do I get to it, I do not know how to remove the front of the dryer!

If your lint screen is on top of dryer pull it out and remove the 2 screws under it. then there are 2 clips under the front edge of the top. with a putty knife you can press the clips to raise the top. after top is up look inside on the right and left top part of the front of the dryer there is a screw on each side should 1/4" or 5/16" head. remove thoughs screws and front folds forward and lifts up to be removed.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

When dryer is turned on , it hums but the drum doesnt turn. It smells like heating element is working, belt is on correctly but drum will not turn. Any suggestions? Thank uou


sounds like the bearing the drum rides on is bad. that will cause the breaker to trip as the motor strains to turn the drum on the bad bearing.

When we push the on button, you can hear a hum,


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has broken. the hum sound is the motor turning. Does it still get hot in the drum? If so then you need a replacement belt ($15-$25).You can open the rear or the dryer to confirm the belt is broken. Be sure to unplug from the wall outlet to avoid electrical shock.

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

I press the start button and hear an electric humming noise and the drum does not turn.


unscrew the rear panel of the dryer,
You will most likeley find the rubber drive belt broken and wrapped around the drum or motor.
if so
Take your make and model details to your local parts dealer and pick up a new belt, for a few $
like a fan belt it installs snaked around the drum, motor, and backwards around a tensioner

Drum won't turn


not really, it may only be a little effort to figure out how the new belt gets wrapped onto the tensioner pulley...the broken one is surely on the floor coiled up under the dryer like a dead snake....don't worry...it's dead.
