That could be one of 2 things 1 something has the drum jammed up. you should try to turn it a few times in both directions it should go freely. if it moves freely then you know that you are going to need a new motor.

Hello! My Hotpoint dryer is making a humming noise when set on a drying cycle but it will not start. What can I do?


Could be a faulty start capacitor, this gives the motor a boost to start it.
Or could be a seized drum bearing.
Remove the top cover, and try pushing the drum round by hand, if it is a faulty capacitor, it should start.

Hotpoint year 2000 Ser.GZ700149A


The problem was the buzzing noise when I turned the switch on. A repairman said to try holding the door switch down and then turn the
switch on and turn the inside with my hand and it happened to start turning again. He gave me that information over the phone. I thank the Lord for his information.

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin


Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
