SOURCE: When turning the knob to start dryer, buzzing sounds but drum doesn't start to turn unless you gently push atart the inside drum

The problem is either a faulty start winding in the motor, or the circuit which energizes the start winding is failing.

A dryer motor has two windings: start & run. The start winding gets it going and a centrifugal switch disconnects the start winding when the motor gets up to speed.

Check the dryer start switch -- then the motor connections and the centrifugal switch inside the motor.

SOURCE: Dryer drum won't start unless I manually push

unfortunatly it is either the motor or the drum bearings in the machine. if it is really hard to push i would suggest looking at all the bearings the drum rides on otherwise it is probably the motor that is getting weak.

Why doesn't drum turn when the start button is pushed?


try turning the drum by hand while on dry cycle> just tape shut or hold door switch in by hand then have someone turn the drum? see if it starts? if so ur motor windings may be bad ad not pushing enough power to run machine, also check the thermal fuse and other thermostats as u may have shorted them somehow? lastly check the belt and tensioner as the motor switch may have switched off if there was a problem with the belt

When start button is pushed the motor will buzz but yhe drum wont turn


Turn power off ,Will the bowl(drum) turn freely by hand.
If not turn by hand the bearings are seized,
It will need a seal & bearing kit & maybe a shaft as well.

My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


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.

Drum wont turn.pust start and hear a buzz but drun wont turn


I have found that the switch activated by the door close or turns on the interior light when open on is likely the problem. You may notice that if the door is open and you push the start button, it will buzz. So if the door is closed and you get this buzz when pushing the start button, there is a problem with the door switch. The start button "thinks" the door is open, and therefore not start. The defective door switch needs to be replaced. At least highly likely.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up

When you press the start button the dryer hums and doesnt turn


first thing you need to do is open the door and try to rotate drum by hand it it is not turn by hand that mean there is some thing stack in your blower fan. if you can turn the drum by hand you need two people to check this problem..one open the door there is one push button, push that button and hold now second person need to push the start button when you heard hums sound the turn the drum by hand again if your dryer stat spin that mean you have bad motor. (forgive me for my english)

Dryer needs jump start


Replace the motor? Lubricate Roller Wheels, replace glides so cylinder turns easily.
