Seems like a bad motor.Bearings get loose so when under load with belt on cant start. Motor probably just hums when you push start.

If the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.

My dryer initially makes a buzzing sound and will not begin the cycle until I give it a few turns manually...


you have a bad motor,if you open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other and have someone else push the start button on and if by helping it to spin it starts usually the motor is bad but i did find on the maytag neptune style dryer that the belt cut into the belt pulley and was holding up the drum and the motor was buzzing like it was bad but like i say usually it's the motor.next time send the brand name and model number and i can help you out better.

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.

Drum wont turn.pust start and hear a buzz but drun wont turn


I have found that the switch activated by the door close or turns on the interior light when open on is likely the problem. You may notice that if the door is open and you push the start button, it will buzz. So if the door is closed and you get this buzz when pushing the start button, there is a problem with the door switch. The start button "thinks" the door is open, and therefore not start. The defective door switch needs to be replaced. At least highly likely.

When you push the button to start the dryer, all it does is buzz and nothing happens


next time send the model number and brand name,all dryers are not the same!it sounds like a bad motor.open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and with the other spin the drum,while you're spinning the drum have someone push the start button,if the motor starts you'll know the motor is bad but it might run for a while before it does this again or it will do it every time but either way the motor should be changed,also on some dryers if the belt broke it will buzz like when the dryer is down but if yours is more like a humming sound like power is going to the motor but it won't run then it's the motor.

My dryer won,t start. When you set the timer and turned the starter on you hear a sound that seems it will run but when you let go the starter it just won/t run


You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor

When i push the button to start dryer I can hear a buzzing sound, but drum will not turn. I have already tried replacing the belt.


Check to see if your motor is running without the belt...if it is not, then replace the motor.
If it does run....rehook back up the belt and then try turning the drum by had to see if it will spin on its own...if it does...replace the motor.

Have AMANA dryer ALE230RAW. Hear buzz when start


I also have this problem, but it is after the dryer has been running. When the motor is hot, it buzzes and will not run. Sometimes it will run if I turn the drum or take some clothes out. I disassembled the dryer and cleaned the motor of lint. This helped but not completely solved the issue. I have completely removed the motor and will thoroughly clean the motor (stator and brushes) and will try again.
