Cabrio Dryer not turning on when hit start button


If it makes a humming noise, as if it's trying to start, you most likely have a defective motor.

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

Whirlpool Dryer Starts fine, but then stops and start button stops working


This is a sign of the Motor failing. The motor is over heating and then wont start again. When the start button is pushed, does it make a humming noise? If so replace drive motor and it will fix it all up!

Dryer was working fine, then it stopped its cycle and would not restart for next load. humming sound, drum will not turn?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The hum sound that you hear is coming from the motor that has gone bad and needs replacement. When the dryer humms and will not work it is the motor that has gone bad, you can also check the wire connections from the control to the motor before replacing it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

sounds like the motor is running, the belt could likely be broken and be the culprit, this is if the motor is turning for sure after you start the dryer

Humming noise and doesn't run


More than likely the belt has slipped off and the noise you hear is the motor running without the belt. It is not a tough fix mentally, but it can be quite a difficult do-it-yourself task. Good luck.
