What is the complete model number of your unit?
The start relay on the motor is bad. Open the door, hold the door switch in and spin the drum as someone else pushes the start button and post back your results.

Could be a broken belt spin the tumbler by hand it if it spins real easy the belt is off or broke another thing to try if you have resistance when turning the drum have a helper for this one open the door and hold the door switch in set timer to a cycle and press start while holding switch and buzzing spin drum and see if it will continue to rotate while holding switch if so motor going bad

Dryer making loud vibrating noise


In all likelihood, the belt that runs the tumbler is loose, causing the tumbler to rotate off center. While it takes a few minutes, the front of the dryer should be removable and you can take the tumbler out and replace the belt.

PROBLEM WITH AMANA DRYER


If you have to"push start" the motor to get it going, you will need to replace the motor. The windings have become weak and cannot get the initial start cycle going. Here is the motor to order.


The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

I push the knob to start and it just humms.


You may have a bad motor or the belt is off. Also make sure your drum turns freely.

I have a whirlpool dryer and when you push the start button the motor just humms and the tumbler doesn't spin. i opened the door spun the tumbler and push the start button and closed it quick and it...


You need to test it, but when the drum doesn't spin on its own, that more than likely means the motor is going bad. If you remove the belt from the motor pulley and run the motor with no load on it for a few minutes and then reattach it see if the motor runs this way, you may get a few more runs out of it. You can usually access the belt pulley form the rear compartment of the dryer.

LGA30AW Dyer Runs for awhile, then wioll turn itself off. When I try to restart it makes a buzzing noise. If I let it sit it will turn on once more but only a short time.


The problem here is that the motor is starting to go bad. The start winding wires are going bad. When the motor gets HOT, the thrmal fuse turns the machine OFF until the motor cools down and then it HUMMS as it tries to start or will just HUMM and not start at all.
When you replace the motor, ALSO check that the hole in the wall to wherever it goes out is NOT CLOGGED UP by a birds nest or LINT BUILD UP that will restirct the hot air from exiting the dryer.
PLEASE CHECK this so that it will not damage the new motor you put in.
