Drive Belt - Part # 529597 Mfg Part # 341241

Drive Belt

RepairClinic Item # 529597

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 Roller Axle

RepairClinic Item # 1967

Over time the drum roller axles can wear out, causing the rollers to bind. If the dryer won't turn, check these axles to be certain they are not worn out. If the rollers spin freely without wobbling, the axles are still fine. If the roller wobbles, replace both the roller and the axle that is worn out.

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.
