Drive Belt - Part # 1052895 Mfg Part # WE12X10009

Drive Belt

RepairClinic Item # 1052895

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.

Drive Motor - Part # 275429 Mfg Part # WE17X10001

Drive Motor

RepairClinic Item # 275429

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.
