Dryer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, what's the problem?

i have a feeling that it's a fault in the power chord, take it out and double check. it would make sense if it only work now and then after you have plugged it back in because it could have made the wires touch again to make it work

What is the problem with my dryer?

The motor starting circuit is failing. Confirm this by giving the drum a push start when it hums. Most likely, the centrifugal switch on the motor is sticking (due to lint buildup) or broken. It has a mechanical component that operates an electrical switch. Check the mechanical operation, then check the switch. Also, check that the motor electrical connector is seated completely.

LG Dryer buttons frozen 'on'

Did it run for awhile first? Ours ran & ran & never turned off. I manually unplugged it. Eventually, determined it was the thermostat that was triggered. First time, the repair man replaced it. Second time, he just hit the red "reset" button in the back. (LG told me over the phone there was no reset button, but not true.) You have to remove a panel in the back (carefully, it's sharp) and reset. Not sure this is your problem, though, from the sound of it. Worth a try. Now I don't run ANYTHING when the dryer is on (not even the washer..which is a pain). Seems to help.

I have a 99 Chrysler Sebring. My brother changed my water pump and timing belt. Now it won't start. He tried to reset the timing, but he can't get the steering bracket off to check the top timer. The motor...

Your Chrysler has what is called an "Interference" engine. This means if the Timing is off the Valves will hit the pistons. That is the "sounds like something is hitting inside" noise.
You should NOT continue trying to start you car until the timing of the cam shaft and crankshaft is guaranteed correct. The valves and pistons may already be hurt, but if you get everything timed right you may get lucky. Really nothing to lose by timing it right and see what happens.
I am sad about this situation, especially when a brother is just trying to help out.

This sounds like a faulty drum bearing. The grey marks you are seeing are grease from the bearing. The loose change sound is from the remnants of the bearing rotating as the drum turns.
