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.

WHY DOES MY WIRLPOOL DRYER GIVE A HUMMING SOUND WHEN TURNED ON


In most cases because something is jamming the blower fan which also spins the drum. Or one of the drum wheels is stuck and the motor is struggling to get it going.

check the motor for that, there may be smoething stuck ther. for the humming sound, when did this started happening? for the smell, check for frounded wire. for repeating each cycle, try to check for the housing if its still operational because the burnt smell and the cycle repeating is linked.

Hotpoint TDC62p is making a buzzing/humming sound and the drum will not spin though it does move if you push it.


Either something is binding the blower wheel up or the motor is bad. The best thing is to take the front of the machine off to access the blower wheel to verify ifanything is indeed binding it.IF not read the next section.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

My washing is still soppy wet, won't spin, won't work only makes a humming sound. I cleaned out the hoses, drain pipes etc but still not working. How do i reset the machine.


Humming means ur motor is trying hard to start spinning! Either ur CAPACiTOR is not good anymore or the washtub is stuck( something kept it from spinning, might be a clothe stuck under the the barrel washer)!
Try to check on those parts!

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.


it's the motor that makes the humming sound..it may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..

Humming sound


If you open the door can you turn the inner drum by hand , if you can is any there any resistance or does it just spin freely

It sounds as if your drive belt has snapped and what you hear is the motor running on its own

If the drum spins freely you will need to take the back off the machine and see what state the drive belt is in

Ps

Is there heat inside the drum when you try to make it work without a load.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out
