Laundry Center: Dryer won't tumble

If the dryer motor runs but the drum doesn’t turn, a broken dryer drive belt, weak drive motor or binding drum seals could be the problem.

First, unplug the laundry center and check the dryer drive belt. Replace the drive belt if it’s worn or broken.

If the belt is okay, spin the dryer drum manually to check for binding. If damaged drum seals prevent the drum from spinning, replace the drum seals.

If the drum spins okay and the drive belt is good, then you may need to replace the drive motor because it’s too weak to spin the drum.

These repairs may help solve your Laundry Center problem:

Replace the laundry center dryer drive belt

Dryer drive belt

The dryer drive belt transfers rotation from the drive motor to the dryer drum. If the drive belt breaks, the motor runs but the drum won't move. If the dryer drive belt is broken or damaged, replace it.
