This morning my wife informed me that our clothes dryer is not tumbling the clothes. So...I removed the front panel, pushed the start button and watched the clothes tumble (of course, with door open, a lot of stuff tumbled out) just the way they were supposed to. So, I replaced the front panel and started the dryer up again....now, it doesn't tumble!
Frustrating!! Can anyone help?

Well, I am a little bit confused, but that's ok, I am confused a lot these days. Can you give us a little more info.

1. When you ran the machine with the front panel off what did you do about the door switch? How did you make it run with the door open?

2. Does the machine heat up and blow out exhaust air, but just not tumble the drum, or does it not operate at all?

3. Does the problem occur in all cycles?

4. Any problem with the belt?

Give us as much information as is relevant, including the full model number and let's see what we might have.
