    Would that cause the motor to start humming loudly before it starts to shut off? It sounds as if it is laboring. I even held the door switch in and helped the drum turn by hand and it still started to hum and the shut off.

You have a faulty heat safety switch. This switch prevents the dryer from overheating and causing fire. Some dryers have as many of 4 of these switches (seems redundant but it prevents fire) Depending on how confident you are with repairs the back of the dryer can be removed and the switches can be replaced. Most of them are circular and are found along the dryer exhaust area. I do recommend that this repair be done by a professional if you do not have allot of experience yourself because of the safety factors involved. Good Luck!!!

Whirlpool Dryer made loud humming noise and quit


Something caused the motor to lock up. The humming noise was the start winding in the motor trying to start rotation, but could not because of lockup. The humming noise stopped when the start winding burned out ( will only last 6 or 7 seconds). It will require a new motor, plus repair to whatever caused it to lock up in the first place.

When the button is pressed to start the dryer it begins to hum as iff the drum is stuck. It does this for about 5 to 10 seconds then shuts off. If I attempt to start it again nothing happens. sound like...


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Maytag Neptune Dryer humming but not running


This sounds like the motor is siezed or burned out. I wish I knew how much a motor is, but the Neptune is a good dryer so it would probably be worth it to get a new motor if indeed that's the problem.
