    Have you checked to see if the belt is broken? (a broken belt allows idler arm to switch power off to drive motor) Also, some older models have a non-resetting safety thermo which can go out if you have a long or restricted vent. (the replacement thermo is an auto resetting one)

Very often the problem is the resetable thermostat, if you open the top you'll find it on the back inside, you can test with an ohm meter or just bypass it to test it.

Dryer won't turn on


Is your dryer electric or gas. If electric, check your fuse box first thing. If it is an older model and your home has an older fuse box, and the boxes uses the big bullet type fuses for the 220 line, one or both fuses could be bad. If so, go buy two new fuses and give it a t;ry.

GE Dryer GFDN110ELWW hums loudly and won't start


The start capacitor is built into the motor and you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor if you should need it.

When i turn the on switch i hear a humming as if it is going to start but it does not. my dryer brand is Frigidaire FEQ 332 E s


Depending on the hum you hear (if you hear the sound and it keeps humming) the belt that connects the motor and the drum is probably broken.

If the hum only happens when you turn the on switch, the motor has probably failed.

Dryer won't spin, but heats up - belt is okay


the motor may have seized up, or the drum bearings are shot.

If you hear a humming noise that you never heard before. Its most likely the magnatron tube is bad. It could be another hi-voltage problem, but site unseen, most g/e are bad tubes...Bruce Denton
