In the lower part of the dryer you have wirings, the motor, and often also an elecronic module, that also works at 120V, if water had reached one of this parts while the dryer was hooked to powe, it must have caused a short.

The appliance must be taken apart by a repairman, and the part that has shorted, replaced or repaired.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

I have a kenmore front loader dryer. My basement recently had a flood and the bottom of the dryer was wet. When i tried to start it, it hums but will not run. What is the problem?


the motor is cooked,i live in the boston area and we had some bad floods a few months ago,all i did for two weeks was change out dryer motors,you can try to spin the drum and hold in the door switch and have someone else hold in the start button to see if it will start but you have to change out the dryer or get a new one if it's in rough shape

It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.

How much water did you have in the basement? Back in June we had flooding in the area, and the my recommendation to everyone has been to replace any appliance that was under any water.

If the motor was under water, wires or the gas valves, these components will corroded and could cause you future safety concerns.
