Get a putty knife, release the top by pressing the springclips between the front and top.

Then remove the front. The blower wheel may be the problem. They get loose.

I have a samsung DV2C6BEW/XAA that turns on and when you press start just sits there and hums ive already checked to see if the belt was attached and it looks good... Any other suggestions?


Try turning the motor or with the picture you have can you start the dryer and observe the motor? It may be the motor humming and not turning. this could be a bad motor, something stuck in the blower wheel or the tub binding somewhere.

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

My dryer won't start. When i activate the start switch I hear a hum like the motor is bound up.. I opened the top and the drum is not stuck and the belt seems in good shape. The unit is about 4 years...


check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

My whirlpool gas LGB6300PW0 dryer won't start. I press the start button and hear a humming noise, but no motor turning over. Please tell me that my 5 yr old dryer doesn't already need a new motor!...


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why yourdryer will not run...

Access motor


Your dryer and motor can accessed a couple different ways depending on the make and model:

1. Can be the Top (remove 2 screws near filter-pull) can slide a putty knife and screw driver and pop the top off.

2. Also, the Door must be taken off to access the motor (Screws on inside of door)

3. Bottom - panel comes off by sliding a putty knife or screw driver and dis-engaging.

After intially opening the dryer cabinet; you will most likely need to remove the front door by removing 2 screws located at the inside top corners (1/4'). ** Be sure to turn off power to unit before opening and servicing.

Whats the problem? Humming noise? Not tumbling/turning? How old? What make?

Dryer won't start


sounds like the start windings in the motor have failed you will need a new motor to repair this.

Dryer hums when start switch is turned


you don't have to "pop" the top off the dryer. the only thing you can do to possibly solve this problem without a professional is to:
  • tape down the door switch with strong tape, or have someone else hold it down.
  • physically turn the tub inside the dryer while pushing the start switch.
  • this will hopefully loosen whatever has the motor stuck.
if this does not work then the motor in the dryer might be bad or going bad, especially if a burning smell is present when you hear the humming sound.

Kenmore series 90 dryer


I hae to say it, but it sounds like the motor has already gone out. That loud humming noise is usually the start windings going out. There is no other way easily to tell if the motor is out, but taking the belt off and saying it doesnt look broke what work in this situation. I would imagine that you have a DOTT (Dryer Of Tommorrow, Today) dryer, because you said it had the front panel. The motor part number is 279787 if this the case. Good Luck, and let me know if you find out any new information or need further help.

GE Dryer DWSR473GV0WW periodically just hums when turning on switch


if it hums when you start it means switch is ok. problem may be the motor capacitor. to check, take off the top and give the drum a push in the normal direction of rotation. if it goes then motor capacitor is faulty - cheap part
