Try to turn it by hand both ways if it doesn't then you have to try and free it. If it's not jammed you are going to need a motor.

Cuts off makes noise


Sound like the dryer bearing or rollers are out. This would make it very hard for the dryer to start and run. You must pull the dryer drum out to access the parts. I'm sure you will see the problem right away once it is apart.

If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

Try holding the door switch lever in and turning the drum hard by hand. It sounds like you have a start switch out in the motor.
