Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.
What is the model number?

SOURCE: When I try to turn on my dryer it just buzzes for

I had a similar problem; start the cycle and hear a loud buzzing but no movement of the drum.

I pulled off the top and back cover to reveal lint buildup inside the housing and around the motor. The belt was on properly. The vent coupling on the back was not secured properly, and was allowing lint to buildup inside the unit. I cleaned the inside the best I could and vaccuumed all around, trying to get the motor as clean as possible. Replaced backpanel (re-connected power) and the unit works fine now. I'm not sure exactly why it works, but it does. :)

Katherine,

Many times when a desktop is making a strange buzzing noise - it is due to a fan malfunction of some sort. Other reasons include a power supply that is faulty or possibly a bad internal speaker.

I would first check the fan(s) for the computer. Start by turning the computer off all of the way. Next, unplug the cords from the unit. You'll need to isolate just the computer tower itself. Next, you'll want to get some compressed air or a vaccuum and gently clean out the areas where the system case fan vents are. If you know how to open the case for your desktop, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make a quick visual check inside of the case for things that may be caught in the fans. Some desktops open via screws on the back plane, and some open with a pull tab/lever.

If cleaning out the dust doesn't resolve the buzzing noise - then you'll need to make sure that the noise is not part of the electronics. If you are hearing an actual electrical buzz and not a speaker or fan noise, then there is likely a larger problem with the computer. In that case - I would take the computer to a certified professional for diagnosis.

Another culprit of buzzing noise may be a CD/DVD drive with a disk stuck in it. Make sure that you have ejected the drive to ensure no disk is stuck in the drive.

I hope this information helps!

My dryer will not work at all, it just makes a buzzing noise


If the sound is more of a hum than a buzz something has the motor in a bind or the motor has gone bad. Make sure you can turn the drum by hand and if you can not then check for something in the blower wheel.
