Dryer Not Spinning?

One of the most common inquires is where the drum won’t turn on. There are several reasons for this and a useful troubleshooting list can help to provide a number of effective solutions. Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair are skilled technicians ready to offer assistance in troubleshooting problems with your clothes dryer not spinning.

Does the Dryer Start?

The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won’t, first check the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. Should the breaker trip or the dryer not start this is often indicative of the bad motor.

Dryer Starts But Drum Won’t Turn

If the dryer will start but the drum refuses to turn, there are three possible causes; it will be due to problems with the belt, pulley or motor. In some instances it can be all three. Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair always performs a multiple-point inspection and is able to make the diagnosis to provide an ethical and reliable estimate for your dryer that won’t turn.

Replacing the belt can be a tricky job since it’s not easy to access the area you need to work on. Often, the heating element for the dryer is behind it. The simplest solution for this is to contact Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair, here.

Motor Problems

If the dryer makes a humming noise but the drum won’t turn, the problem is often the motor. The motor itself might be jammed. No need to worry, we at Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair are seasoned experts in dryer repair.
