I have a samsung dyer that works and dies the cloths. But I have to start spinning the drum by hand and close the door real fast and it will keep going. If I don't spin it it will turn off and start throwing codes.

I looked at the pully and belt and they both look really good. They are not broken. I grabbed the belt and tried to spin it by hand and I could it was just a little difficult.

How can I check if the motor is going bad? what else could it be?

Hi,

Yes, then that would be a motor problem if you turn it by hand and it starts running.

Here's the motor for your model you can order:
DC31-00055G Motor


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to replace it. Unplug your dryer first!

Let us know how it goes after you replace it.
