If it has power, then it is most likely the motor is trying to start. this is why you here the hummimg. good-day ! you might have to clean motor and oil the shaft, so the motor will run.

SOURCE: 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.

Gas dryer won't start.


if the motor hums when you push the start button but wont move you probably have a frozen motor. happens from too much lint packed around the motor and ruins the bearings. if you can access the motor from a front kick panel you can check this. possibly something is jammed in the blower wheel as well. unplug it and check it out

Dryer wont start


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

I have a whirlpool gold gas dryer model #GGQ8858JQ1. When I push the start button the dryer wont start it just makes a humming sound.


You either have something caught in the blower or you have a bad motor. If you unplug the dryer and pull it out. Then remove the rear panel (1/4" hex screws), looking at it from the rear, the blower is on your left. Remove the two screws that hold the blower housing on. You should be able to get your hand in far enough to see if there is something in the blower.
