    When I push the start button my dryer buzzes. It did work once today but made a loud squeaking noise. Now it just buzzes and no one to help because it's a holiday!

    When I press the button on my Kenmore gas dryer, it makes a buzzing sound but the drum does not turn. The belt and wheels were replaced a year ago. It had worked from time to time but does not work at all. Model number is 87581800. Dryer is 20 or more years old.

Ummm... mine wasn't starting either. pressed the start button and heard a click/hum. read all these posts, and checked the door switch first, and that tested fine with a multimeter. then, i pulled the dryer away from the exhaust tube with the intention of testing the heat fuse, and found a surprise.that would make Bullwinkle cry !! ...jammed up in the dryer vent receptacle, and against the drum was a roasted and mangled squirrel. was not a pretty picture, and some flies flew out. seems he chewed his way into the external vent cover screen. Nasty !! rubber gloves, and lotsa paper towels later, i hooked everything back up, and the dryer started. soooo, check for a blocked vent first before you pull everything apart.

So if the motor doesnt start is just buzzing, The windings have gone out in the motor. You have to replace the whole motor. If you get me the model number i can get you a part number and you can order the part from sears.

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.
