Question and Answers

Q:

What is wrong with my Whirlpool dryer model LDR3822BW0 when it will not turn?

A:

When the dryer is running but not turning the drum the most likely cause is a broken belt.

To check the belt pull the dryer out from the wall and unplug it from the power outlet. There are two screws in the back and you remove them and lift up and pull back on the top panel to release it.

With the top panel off you should be able to see the belt. If you can't see the belt it is broken. If the belt is not broken then most likely it has come off the idler pulley.

With the top off there are two bolts in the upper corners holding the front panel to the cabinet. Remove the bolts and pull out and up on the front panel to release it. With the front panel off the belt can be changed.

The image below contains the instructions for changing the belt on a similar Kenmore dryer. If the 3394652 belt is broken then the image will be helpful in routing the belt around the 691366 idler pulley.

Q:

What is wrong with my Whirlpool model LDR3822BW0 dryer when it doesn't rotate the drum?

A:

If the motor seems to running but the drum is not rotating the belt has most likely broken.

You can check for a broken belt by removing the top of the washer. First unplug the dryer from the voltage outlet. There are two screws in the back holding the top on. Remove the two screws and slide the top forward and up to release the top.

With the top off you should be able to see the 3394652 belt unless it is broken. If you can see the belt and pull on it then it's not broken and most likely the problem will be with the 691366 idler pulley.

With the top off remove the two bolts in the upper corners holding the front panel to the cabinet. With the bolts removed pull out and up on the front panel to release it from the two lower clips.

With the front panel off you can replace the belt.

The image below shows how the belt is routed around the idler pulley on a similar dryer.
