Drum would not turn when start button is pressed... stops humming when start button is released... Dryer has power but drum doesn’t turn when start button is remained pressed... I ordered the drum belt although I have not verified the problem as drum belt.

Hi,

Does that hum sound like the motor is running, but the drum is not turning?

Or its just a hum sound and the motor isn't running? If that's the case--->See if you can turn the drum by hand both ways, if not, then you may have something stuck/jammed in the blower wheel keeping the drum the turning.

Here's the belt for your model:
Drive Belt WE12M29


When you click the part link to the belt you will see a video on how to remove the front panel to check for something stuck/jammed in your blower. Make sure you unplug your dryer first!

Let us know what you find.
