Electric and gas clothes dryers use an electric motor to power the drive belt that spins the laundry drum.The motor is bolted to the bottom of the appliance near the front, next to a tension pulley assembly that keeps pressure on the belt to prevent it from slipping.
The drive motor.Your electric dryer has a motor that rotates the dryer drum and the blower wheel.A malfunctioning motor will cause both the drum and the blower to stop working.If you hear a low humming sound when you try to start your appliance, you are likely dealing with a damaged drive motor.

Addendum 2017 dec 14 last weekend the dryer refused to start.We would hit the switch, there would be a click but no start.After a couple of tries the dryer would not even click.It turns out that the dryer motor was stuck and could not rotate.I removed the lower cover and removed the drum belt from the motor.
Deal with the motor.If youre really bent on resolving this issue by yourself, you could replace your motor.The most difficult part would probably be finding the exact motor your dryer uses.From there, youll just need to get to it, which will also require you to remove the back panel of your dryer by unscrewing the screws in the back.Keep working until youve removed everything.
My dryer started becoming very loud.When removed lower panel noise coming from motor area and dryer would shut off.Would not restart until let it rest for a bit.Motor very hot and would labor to start once cooled enough.Replaced motor, reassembled dryer and wont start.Depending on.
Took a couple large towels out to lighten the dryer load, and it wouldnt start.Unlike last week when it hummed and then wouldnt start, now it wont start at allits just dead.I can hear the dryer timer clickingsounds like its still working.But no drum, no motor, nothing when i press start.
The drum turns freely and without fail.I have removed the dryer duct cover and inspected the blower wheel and removed lint.While the cover was off, i ran the unit to try to determine the cause.It sounds as if the noise is coming from behind the blower housing.Could this issue be related to the motor, drum roller shafts or belt wear.
Whirlpool dryer wont tumble.With the front panel removed and the drum out of the way, the age of this unit became apparent just by looking at the amount of lint resting in the bottom.What i found was the contacts to the motor windings were damaged for the run winding, which meant the motor was trying to start using the start winding.
The motor can be accessed by removing the front panel of the dryer, then the front drum supports you need a tiny wrench for the screws, as the ones on this dryer arent slotted for a screwdriver.The straps holding the motor down can be removed with strong downward pressure and something to pry away the arms when theyre clear of the tabs.
If the dryer just hums it means that the drum is either jammed or the start winding on the motor isn39t engagingonly the run winding.Open the door and turn the drum by hand to make sure the drum isn39t jammed.
