Drive Belt - Part # 1266808 Mfg Part # 4400EL2001A

Drive Belt

RepairClinic Item # 1266808

Every dryer has a belt, and if the belt breaks the dryer won't turn. The belt is usually a very long, slender belt that wraps all the way around the dryer drum, around a tension pulley, and then around the drive motor. Over time the belt will break from normal use. A quick way to see if the belt is broken is to reach into the dryer and try to spin the drum by hand. If it spins very easily the belt is probably broken. Some dryers have a belt switch on the idler pulley arm that will not let the dryer start if the belt is broken. When a dryer won't turn, this is the first part to check.

Drum Support Roller & Axle - Part # 2701044 Mfg Part # 4581EL2002C

Drum Support Roller & Axle

RepairClinic Item # 2701044

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If they are worn out or start binding the motor can get overloaded and the dryer won't turn. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, check to be sure the drum turns freely with the belt removed. If not, check the rollers. Do not lubricate the rollers or roller shaft, lubrication will attract lint and cause the roller bearings to wear out faster. If the rollers don't turn freely, replace them. The roller shaft can often be reused, unless it has worn down. Clean the shaft thoroughly before installing the new rollers.

Drive Motor - Part # 1330330 Mfg Part # 4681EL1008A

Drive Motor

RepairClinic Item # 1330330

The motor should spin freely when the belt is disconnected. If it doesn't, check to be certain there isn't anything caught in the blower wheel. If the blower wheel is clear and the dryer still won't turn, the motor may be defective. All dryer motors have sealed bearings and can't be lubricated. Replace the motor if it doesn't turn freely.
