    I have a whirlpool electric dryer model #LE4440XWW0 and when I push the start button it makes an almost buzzing sound - it seems like half the noise I would expect if it was working properly. Ideas?

All these are bad motors or possibly lint jammed in the blower wheel attached to the motor.
No lint= bad motor.

I have worked at sears appliance have come across exact or similar problems. You push the button and you hear something like a loud buzzing. My experience has been that the drive motor is locked and needs replacing. Depending on the age of the dryer and the cost of a motor and installation, you might but another dryer.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed


It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.
