Under front of dryer, there are two 5/16" machine screws which hold the kick plate on. Remove these for access.

My whirlpool duet sport dryer made a loud bang then stopped working and now says its sensing,,what could be wrong


Try reaching inside the dryer and turn the drum by hand. There should be some resistance because of the belt going around the drum. If you can turn it freely my guess would be the bang you heard was the belt breaking and the idler pulley hitting the floor or the side of the dryer. Most dryers today will not run if the belt breaks because of a safety switch. Hope this helps.

The drum stopped turning on our Asko t700 dryer even though the dryer motor works fine so it runs and blows air but will not turn. Both of the fuses seem fine and as I say the motor and everything else is...

The belt has come off the dryer and I can't figure out the configuration to put it back on, therefore the dryer wont turn


Some of the belts are counterintuitive to reinstall. although there are several different styles there are usually four - five components: Drum, belt, motor pulley and the spring pulley (sometimes there is a also a stationary pulley). Please double check but a lot of dryers have a diagram inside the dryer housing. If not, place the belt around the drum then the stationary pulley (if equipped) then the motor pulley and finally the spring pulley. Try to support the drum loosely if the spring pulley gives you a problem, on some models the motor mounts are adjustable, which you can use to reduce the strain. (You can always adjust it after the drum and pullies are secure) Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Whirlpool elec dryer, very loud and stops spinning.


The belt is probably bad and the noise is most likely the guide wheel for the drum

Today our dryer quit drying. It hums but is not tumbling.


Dryers are belt driven. Something has locked the drum or motor, and that is why you hear the humming sound. With the dryer turned off, reach inside the drum and try to turn it. It should turn pretty freely. There will always be some drag. If you need a lot of effort to turn the drum, then it is time to investigate what is causing the drag. Probably, something has gotten wedged between the drum and the front wall of the dryer.

If you cannot find anything there, then it could be helpful to remove the outer shell from the dryer and investigate further to find the source of the drag. This requires some mechanical skill, so think carefully if you want to try it or call a service company or simply replace the dryer. A used dryer can cost $100 or less.

I'm trying to figure out where part #3346 goes on a roper REX5634. Pretty simple right? But I can't find it anywhere and no where looks obvious. help! Pleeez


if your part number is correct it would be the idler pulley tensioner for the drum belt and installs right next to the dryer motor inside the units lower area to keep belt tension on the drum belt

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - Gas Dryer - Drum Won't Spin


If you are handy with tools, try to remove the back panel and feel the belt that should surround the drum. If access is that limited, try to turn the dryer on its side and you can get to the motor from the bottom. But like the guy said before, call a pro if you can't do any of this.

Drum stopped turning


99% of the time it's the belt.

Pull the top off the dryer. Typically a couple of screws in the back and then slide the whole top towards the front of the dryer, an lifting from the front edge open it up like a chest. Check out the drum. You should see a broken belt or no belt.

The drum on my dryer stopped turning it was heating and it just stopped turning, I just want to get instuctions on how to take it apart.


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If 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 the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Asko T700 loose belt, access from front?


I think you must replace the belt and the tensionarm. It MUST be done from the backside of the machine... Remove the backpanel, and the drum, change the tensionarm, and put the drum into the machine again. Put on the new belt, and mount it together again. Be careful for sharp edges! Hope this helps :-)
