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)
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!

check your battery terminal wire connector make sure they are secure and clean of any corrosion . and as for the humming sound I believe that is your fuel pump running when you turn your key to the on position

2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.

im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

03 toyota corolla wont start makes humming noise

Sounds like your starter has failed, what your probably hearing is the solenoid trying to engage. Have the starter checked.

Humming sound cumin from my creative inspire 4.1 woofer

Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. The first indication of a fuel pump issue is a hum or drone noise.
