Drive Belt - Part # 1246110 Mfg Part # Y312959

Drive Belt

RepairClinic Item # 1246110

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 - Part # 1480353 Mfg Part # 6-3129480

Drum Roller Axle

RepairClinic Item # 1480353

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.

Drive Motor - Part # 2118676 Mfg Part # W10410999

Drive Motor

RepairClinic Item # 2118676

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.
