Check if the dryer starts and you can regulate the controls from the user panel. If the appliance doesn’t start at all, then you have a power problem, or there is a connectivity glitch in the circuit. If the appliance starts but there is no spin, then you would need to inspect several internal components of the dryer. There are as many as half a dozen common causes of dryer not spinning. Call Max Appliance Repair to inspect such problems, as some of them are quite complicated. We offer same-day dryer repair, replacement of broken parts, and preventive maintenance including servicing, throughout Ottawa.

A broken or failing drive belt will lead to dryer not spinning. The drum needs the drive belt to sustain its tension and hold the components in place for efficient and effective spin. It is possible that the drive belt is not yet broken, but the drum may have loosened due to some reason. Irrespective of the precise nature of the problem, a technician must access these components and test them to draw any inference.
Broken or worn out rollers will prevent the spin. Depending on the model of the dryer you have, there could be several rollers. The motor powering the dryer will not work effectively if the drum rollers encounter any obstruction, if they are misaligned, or if they are failing due to some reason. Replacing the drum rollers is a solution. If associated or connected parts are a problem, then a technician must check those.
No component in household appliances is indestructible. Like the other mechanical parts, the roller axles can also wear out in due course of time. If these axles do not function as intended, then your dryer will not spin. Changing the axles is a solution. If fitting or alignment is an issue, that can be addressed too.
Plastic drum glides can break down. Drum bearings can also wear out. Both, glides and bearings, are crucial for a drum to work perfectly. If either is failing, then the spin would be adversely affected. The dryer may not spin at all.
