A buzzing sound when you press the start button is a indicator of a bad motor if no other obstruction is found.
It seems you have eliminated other obstructions.

Where is the lint filter? Why does it put lint all over clothes?

lint is usually removed in the dryer. If you have lint on clothes after going through the wash, you probably left something in a pocket somewhere.

This dryer won't start

there are thermostats that will pop if the dryer runs to hot,a dryer needs to be pulled apart at least once a year to be cleaned out,all it does is move air,if the vent line is blocked or lint builds up in the duct that the lint filter slides into the thermal fuse or high limit thermostat will pop as a safety,if you don't clean the dryer and vent line the new part will pop again.also the door switch could be broke or the belt could have snapped,some dryers have a safety switch,if the belt snaps the switch will open and the dryer won't first thing you'll need a meter,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the metal duct that the filter slides into,on the top of the blower wheel housing you'll see a white part,this is the thermal fuse,you have to remove at least one of the wires,check it with the meter,if you send the full model number i can look up your dryer,most likely the fuse will be a 3392519 thermal fuse,like i said if the fuse is bad you have to clean out the dryer and vent line or the fuse will pop again.and check the door switch,open the door,push the switch in and out if it makes a clicking sound most likely it's good.let me know what you find and send model number.

Dryer has started to make a loud sqealing when it starts and gets up to speed, the kind of sound a loose fan belt makes on a car, and now just makes a buzzing sound when the button is pushed but dosen't...

If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63

There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.

Dryer stops after 20min. maytag model lse7806ace

Sounds like it's overheating, when is the last time you cleaned the vent. You should peridically (at least every 6 months) disconnect the vent pipe/hose at the back of the machine clean it in both directions with a canister vac. Also make sure the vent 'exit' on the exterior of your residence which has a flap isn't plugged or stuck in the closed position. If this doesn't help let me know and I'll be glad to help you further.
