It may be a broken drive belt, check underneath for remnants of the belt.

KEYS750LQ0 dryer doesn't start it just hums when I push start


Check the belt. You may have to open the machine up to look. if the belt is ok turn the drum by hand and see if the motor pulley is also turning. While you are in there look for foreign objects that have wedged against the drum preventing it from turning.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

Makes a humming noise but doesn't turn


Try this, open the dryer door and hold down the door light switch. Turn on the dryer and press start.When you hear the motor humming, turn the drum clockwise with your hand to see if it will turn. If itruns, you have a bad motor and will need to be replaced. If it doesn't turn, something is jammedinside and you will need to disassemble the unit to find the jam.
Hope this helps.

Dryer lights up but drum doesn't turn. Can manually move drum but difficult.


I would like by your description you have a obstruction in the blower wheel preventing the motor from turning freely. I would seek to find an item of clothes in the blower wheel preventing the motor from turning.
Thats where I would look, I hope this helps

HOW DO I FIX MY MAYTAG DRYER. IT DOES NOT START WHEN I PUSH


There are a few things that come to mind why your dryer may not start: -Check to make sure there is power going to the dryer -Check that the door switch is working -The motor may have overheated -There may be an electrical fault or loose wire -If the motor turns but the drum doesn't, check that the belt is still on the drum.
For some of these checks you may have to remove the control panel or the front panel. Depending on your skills and experience you may want to have some of these checks done by a qualified professional due to the danger of live electricity.

Dryer not working I replaced the Thermal fuse and still not working.


Is the drum turning? If it's turning, then maybe the high-limit thermostat or element is bad. If drum doesn't turn, check lid switch.

I push the button to activate the dryer, the dryer makes its usual buzzing noise to indicate it is about to start but it doesn not start


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Dryer wil not spin


Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!


For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.
