Dryer drum won't spin by itself, however I can turn it by hand. Machine hums as if drive motor is stuck, after about 30 seconds you smell a burning smell. When the machine was working in the past year, you would hear a thumping noise everytime the drum would turn, almost as if you were drying a pair of sneakers. I would like to do the repair myself, I am fully capable. Can you explain to me where to start as far as disassembling the machine? Might it be something as simple as a broken belt?
ANSWER Hello Joey. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the drive motor 4681EL1008A is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
