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.

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

When pushing the start button dryer hums but does not spin. when u release start button dryer shuts off


Sounds like a bad motor. Check to make sure the drum isn't stuck, if you can spin the drum put some tape on the door switch and press the start button while you spin the drum. If the drum continues to rotate, you have a bad motor.

Dryer wont start, makes humming noise and thats all


sounds like you have abad motor,try spinning the drum by hand,if it moves most likely it's the motor,or the belt broke and is jammed in the motor stopping it from spinning,or if it's hard to turn something could be stuck in the blower wheel but it's the motor making the noise.you need to get in there and check it out.the motors are easy to change out on a kenmore dryer,also next time send the model number.let me know what you find

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

We just purchased a new Samsung Dryer model #DV218AEB/XAA the lights will come on but when you attempt to start the dryer there is a hum, the dryer does not spin, then the hum goes away after a few...


Could be a couple things causing this problem. If you can turn the durm by hand without much resistance then the belt may be too loose. This could be because the spring on the tension pully came off or the belt streached. The humming you hear is the motor spinning. If you cannot turn the drum by hand then something could be stuck between the drum and the frame of the dryer.
I would also check that the dryer is wired correctly, because low voltage could be causing the motor to hum but not turn.

I have a performa dryer and when you push the start button it just hums but won't stay on.


there is a good chance you have something stuck in the blower motor, you can take a peek down the lint trap with a flashlight, you can also confirm this simply by trying to trun the dryer drum,
try to spin it by hand, if it wont trun, or has a great deal odf resistance then you have a sock stuck
if it does turn easily, then hold the door switch
and try to turn the drum as you hear the hum
if this starts the dryer and all is good, till you let go of the door switch,, well then it sounds like you have a motor issue, a start winding is bad, to be more specific.
