Hi nigltdoobie,
Happ to hepl!


You said, The dryer wont start, makes humming sound

1. Check the outlet that it is still plugged in.
2. And check that the breaker is in the on position.
3. You may want to rule out the breaker being an intermittent problem by turning the breaker off and on once. ( As long as the breaker does not support something else on the same circuit that is vital)
IF SO YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS STEP!
Be cause if the breaker is intermittently faulty, it may not restart after this and then where would you be if it the same circuit supports a freezer or fridge..
4. Unplug the dryer for 3 minutes and then after this time out try to restart it to see if it resets the system.

If after these tasks your dryer is still inoperable you will need hands on service to diagnose this situation!

Let me know what happens. Write me again!

I have a maytag dryer that sometimes when I hit the start button will start and run for only a few minutes and stop and wont start again for a while and does a humming noise when it does star why?


Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload (Getting hot) it may be caused by the motor itself, or could be overloaded by bearings or fan etc

Model # 110.68932792....wont run just makes a humming sound....starts smelling funny if left alone


the humming sound is coming from the motor,spin the drum by hand if it feels like it's hard to move you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into,or the belt could be hung up on something,if it moves freely you have a bad motor

Press the start button on dryer, it hums but wont turn. With 2 people pressed the start button again, held the door switch, reached in turned the drum, it hummed stopped humming then no more nothing....


Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

Dryer wont start


It sounds like the belt is broken. The humming sound is the motor turning with no belt.
