Can you hear the motor running when it is supposed to be spinning? If yes, the drive belt may be broken (heat is bad for belts). To replace the belt, the top must be opened, then the front panel removed to access the belt area. Open a short rear panel at the bottom to release the belt tension device and to thread the new belt over the motor and idler pulleys. Place the belt over the drum first, then work with the motor area next. If you did not hear the motor running, then the motor itself may need to be replaced. Replace the drive belt along with the motor for best performance. Have you made sure that there is power at the dryer socket?

My dryer won't spin the bottom does but the drum wont. It tries then goes back to the rinse cycle. Or it will struggle to spin and the clothes are soaked.

I have not seen a dryer with a spin cycle are you sure your not talking about your washing machine? If it is the dryer it may need a new belt. If it is the washer it could need a new clutch a switch or it could have a loose wire. If you are not familiar with electronics I would suggest you have a dealer fix it.

Washer is not agitating in whites and slowly in colors. What and how do we troubleshoot?

1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

Heater not functioning

Hello, does the dryer drum spins? If so, then replace the heating element in your dryer. Look on the back of the dryer, if there is inspection plate about 10"x10". First, unplug your dryer, this is very important to your life. Once the dryer has been unpluged then remove the inspection plate.

Now, if there isn't an inspection plate on the back of your dryer. The the front of the dryer will need to come off. Just leave the dryer door on. Turn the dryer on it side---Remember to unplug your dryer--- On the bottom of the front dryer panel with the door is three or 4 screws just remove these screws. Now, pull the bottom the dryer front panel out about 2" or 3" and pull the front panel down. There is two snap locks that are hooked in the top of dryer cover. Pull the dryer panel out and reach in aroun the door to unplug door switch. I hope this work out for you. GB...stewbison

I have LG washer and dryer and its making loud noise, specially when its spinning. Do you have any suggestion. this washer is only 4 yrs old

The most common reason for a loud noise on spin cycle is that water has got into the bearings and forms rust. The ball bearings are no longer smooth. Hence the noise!..Probably the most common F/L washer reason for demise. If the inner bowl is loose and 'floppy', it would be for the same reason.....Overuse of detergent will do it every time!.....Sorry.......Nomess

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

My Kenmore Elite dryer spins with no heat

please check the thermal cutoff. these are the parts with 2 thick wires attached to it. they are normally located near the heating element ( if electrical ) and (near the exhaust if it is gas).

these parts control the heating element.
