When you press start on my dryer is is making a humming noise but will not come on


On the info provided, it may be the drum belt has broken and the motor is not able to turn the drum. The humming you hear is most likely the motor turning as it should, but due to the broken belt, the motor is not able to turn the drum.

Drum not turning, hear humming noise


the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

Press the start button on dryer, it hums but wont turn. With 2 people pressed the start button again, held the door switch, reached in turned the drum, it hummed stopped humming then no more nothing....


Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.
