I NEED YOUR HELP

    Same issue. I bush the start button and it buzzes.

    I guess the motor is close to dieing. I can still get the thing to work but I had to tape down the "off" switch on the inside of the door. Then I manually rotate the barrel inside while holding down the start button. It will go then. Anyone one got an idea on how to properly fix this? Should I get an air compressor and blow out the motor? Any suggestions on how to access the motor any easier from the back? Do I have to remove the motor, how do I access that? Does this kind of motor have contact brushes inside that can be replaced? Is that the problem or is the motor just going bad from use? It's only 2 years old.

Dryer doing nothing


Your dryer is sensing a problem, but not being specific about it. Check that you can turn the drum first to make sure that it hasn't wegged in place. But it sounds more like a control board - from the limited indications you are giving us.

My Frigidaire dryer (Gallery series) will not start. It makes a buzzing noise every time i pres the start button.


This is a indication that the motor had shorted out to ground and everytime you press the start button the start and run windings of the motor are grounding out. You'll need a new motor for this fix.

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Dyer was grinding, then won't run


Sounds to me like you motor has froze up. Is there any smell coming from the dryer? The fuse would not cause this. A fuse would make the dryer do nothing when you hit the start button.
