Whirlpool LER6611LQ0 elect dryer drum/fan not working

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I have a dryer not working.

 

The timer turns on the dryer and I can hear the motor buzzing. However, the fan and the drum are not moving. I open the door and the element stays on. The drum feels hard to turn by hand. I have opened the top and without disassembly, the belt looks ok and in place. The drum is in place and I see no seals or drum guides sticking out.

 

What is the issue? What do I check?

 

Thanks!

2 things to do, pull drum and see if motor runs, if that dosent work check the blower wheel for obstructions that would stop the motor, if nothing found the motor is most likely bad

If it does turn out to be a bad motor, you'll want to replace both the motor Part number: AP3094245

and the blower wheel at the same time because removing the blower wheel is usually a destructive process Part number: AP2997251

Might as well install the maintenance kit while you're in there Part number: 4392065

Sometimes those blower wheels are brutal to remove.
