Tumbler spins freely, no burning odor previous to stopping. When you push the start button it simply clicks, no response at all. We have worked at pressing the door button, and have cleaned all vents and hoses. Any suggestions?

if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find
ok can u turn the tumbler freely,
if no well there is something stuck in you blower like a sock or something
if the tumbler turns freely
keep the door open and hold the door switch
try pushing the start button
and tuning the tumbler, yes all three at the same time lol you may need a hand
try tuning the tumbler when you hear a hum
if it takes off bad news your start winding on the motor is bad or the capacitor depending on your model
if it does not turn, but the hum continues longer than 1-2 minutes it could be just a belt
Did you clean the lint screen and replace? Also - all lint should be cleaned from back of dryer and the duct...many dryer manufacturer have safety sensors that will not light dryer due to there being too much lint, not enough air flow...(safety feature) ...
try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then:
the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons:
1.) simply burned out copper windings
2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design
...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
