You may have either a burned off wire in the back or more than likely it is a bad themal overload switch. It is located under the top of the dryer at or near the drum. Bypass it and see if it runs then. If so, replace it about $20. I am assuming you have checked the breakers. Turn them off and then back on. Check the wiring from the receptacle to the plug to the back of the dryer. I believe however, it is in the thermal switch.

When hitting start button, it sometimes buzzes, but fails to start. Can sometimes wait for a little while and try again, and it starts. When it buzzes, it will only buzz for a few seconds and then nothing.


it is either the door switch or start switch, this website will show you how to test both, Good Luck Tim:

Sounds like a potentially bad motor. When trying to start the dryer, it may have opened the thermal protector, which is why you are no longer getting the noise. Check that nothing is just stuck in the drum seal or blower wheel, seizing the motor. If all is clear, replace the motor.

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.


Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

Dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start switch.


Sounds like a bad motor, The buzzing noise is probably the motor humming then nothing because the thermal over load switch inside the motor opened. Timer will still be energized. Good Luck

Dryer making a buzzing sound in the console but not running


Unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
Look on the exhaust vent for a failed fuse.
It will be narrow and about 1 and 1/2 inches long.
Remove the 2 wires and jump them together.
Plug in the dryer and start it.
If everything works OK replace the thermal fuse.

Amana Dryer won't start


Depending on your interpretation of the 'buzzing' sound compared to mine, I'd say it may be a relay chattering or the motor trying to start up but the windings are beginning to fail. You may want to clean the motor housing from dust etc and make sure that you do that with the power disconnected. Also: with no clothes in teh dryer..try rotating it around and feel for any spots in that rotation that may be binding.. if the drum has excessive restriction while rotating.. the motor may not have enough torque to overcome that and just buzz,,, Hope that helps...
