Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer
When you push the button to start the dryer, it makes the same noise as when you forget to set the timer and then push the start button, but nothing happens. The door is shut and the dryer is plugged in. It started in the middle of a load. I heard a weird noise and then a humming or buzzing sound and I noticed that the dryer had stopped.
This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.
