LG DLE5977 drum won't turn

5 posts in this topic

No noise, no hum, no nothing. Just stopped turning today. Power to the control panel still. I opened it up about 6 months or so ago and replaced the rollers.

thx,

dj

How's the Belt and the Belt Switch ?

OR the Thermostat on the Blower ...

The belt looked OK 6 months ago, but if it snapped, would that disable the motor? I guess that would make sense. Funny to me that there is no sound. I would figure if it was the motor, I'd have heard signs it was going and/or would hear some sounds. The fact that it just quit and makes no attempt to turn is a bit odd. I guess I'll open it up and check the belt.

thx

also, if the Belt breaks, the Belt Switch wouldn't be activated (which powers the Motor)
