Hi there, this is motor failure. the actual motor windings are in bad condition at this moment. they are separating and this can ultimately start an electrical fire. the automatic shut off prevents the fire form occurring. you will have to remove the motor and tanke it to an electrialc motor shop for a re thread.

We have a kenmore 90 series dryer. Probably 6-8 years old. When you press the start button it makes a humming noise but won't start. Any ideas what it might be?


chance it could be the motor is to weak to turn the drum or it is bound up by the belt or bad rollers check breakers if half tripped this can keep motor from fully engaging

Roaring Sound During Operation of Dryer


Does the roaring sound occur after the machine warms up? If so, it could be a bad drum bearing. the heat from the dryer causes it to expand in its housing and, since it may been defective, could start "roaring". If so, The dryer drum shaft/bearing assembly will need to be replaced

If however, the roaring is immediate upon start up then u may have a bearing in your dryer motor. The entire motor may have to be replaced.
