    No it doesn't start them stop it just doesn't start, not at all. I can turn it on and all I get is a humming noise. The drum is tight so I know its not the belt.

If it has a start capacitor, could be faulty. try it without the belt on , and flick the motor by hand , if it goes then motor is probably o/k.

SOUNDS TO ME AS IF THE MOTOR IS FRYED IT WILL START RUN FOR A WHILE THEN STOP ? I WOULD CHECK INTO CHANGING IT OUT OR A NEW MACHINE WHAT EVER IS EASIEST ON YOUR WALLET DURING THESE TIGHT TIMES GOOD LUCK

try holding the door switch with your finger and turning the drum with your hand after you push the start button , if this does not start it then you will have to replace the motor

Today our dryer quit drying. It hums but is not tumbling.


Dryers are belt driven. Something has locked the drum or motor, and that is why you hear the humming sound. With the dryer turned off, reach inside the drum and try to turn it. It should turn pretty freely. There will always be some drag. If you need a lot of effort to turn the drum, then it is time to investigate what is causing the drag. Probably, something has gotten wedged between the drum and the front wall of the dryer.

If you cannot find anything there, then it could be helpful to remove the outer shell from the dryer and investigate further to find the source of the drag. This requires some mechanical skill, so think carefully if you want to try it or call a service company or simply replace the dryer. A used dryer can cost $100 or less.

We just purchased a new Samsung Dryer model #DV218AEB/XAA the lights will come on but when you attempt to start the dryer there is a hum, the dryer does not spin, then the hum goes away after a few...


Could be a couple things causing this problem. If you can turn the durm by hand without much resistance then the belt may be too loose. This could be because the spring on the tension pully came off or the belt streached. The humming you hear is the motor spinning. If you cannot turn the drum by hand then something could be stuck between the drum and the frame of the dryer.
I would also check that the dryer is wired correctly, because low voltage could be causing the motor to hum but not turn.

I have a whirlpool LP Dryer model #LGR5848E that won't start.


can you turn the drum by hand.
if not i would be concerned that you have a sock or something stuck in the blower sqiral cage.
if you can turn it by hand and it sspins freely, then you may have several issues, broken belt, is where id start,
the fact that you can hear a hum say the motor is trying

The dryer will not tumble


do you hear any humming noise? does the heat come on?....no noise. most likely is a thermal fuse....small white fuse usually with two blue wires. humming means broken belt, bad motor or something stuck in blower wheel.

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
