The dryer drum belt is a thin belt which is wrap around the drum.To determine if the belt is broken, go near the drum and try to spin it, if it spin easily then it may be due the broken belt.But usually these belts are strong and rarely ever brake.But still it is better to check it.Another possible cause of dryer drum not turning is due to.
Just like your drum rollers, the roller axles on your dryer also experience wear and tear.If they are worn out, the rollers will not spin freely and this causes the dryer to stop.Its a good idea to check the rollers and roller axles at the same time.If the drum rollers spin freely and without any wobbles, the axles are still in good shape.
Replace the drive belt if its worn or broken.If the belt is okay, spin the dryer drum manually to check for binding.If damaged drum seals prevent the drum from spinning, replace the drum seals.If the drum spins okay and the drive belt is good, then you may need to replace the drive motor because its too weak to spin the drum.

Good evening all, i have a 13 yo sears electric dryer 110.96585210, that in the middle of drying cloths this weekend when the wife put a small load of laundry in the dryer hit the button and walked away shortly after turned itself off.I opened up the dryer vacuumed it out, the drum seems to spin freely by hand only with force applied.
The belt.When it wears out, it puts strain on the motor, causing it to stop.To determine if this is the problem, remove the dryer belt and turn the drum by hand.If the drum is hard to turn andor makes squealing or grinding noises when turned, the bearing is worn out.
Just replaced heating element on frigidaire dryer fde647rfs0.Put dryer back together and drum will not turn.Motor is turning, and drum turns by hand.But when machine is put back together the belt is not turning the drum.Belt is correct according to schematics.Any suggestions.
The drum support rollers and idler pulley seemed to be in good shape, and the four 4 triangular rings on the drum support roller shafts were all intact.So, i decided to replace only the belt, even though the dryer maintenance kit that i purchased had all of those other parts.
I can set the cycle knob, and hear the timer clicking down.But when i hit the start button, the tumbler does not spin.If i open the door, the light comes on, and i can see the orange glow from the heating element through the vent inside the drum.
