I have a maytag dryer that sometimes when I hit the start button will start and run for only a few minutes and stop and wont start again for a while and does a humming noise when it does star why?


Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload (Getting hot) it may be caused by the motor itself, or could be overloaded by bearings or fan etc

Maytag MDE3000ayw. When I press the start button, there is a humming sound, but it won't start. Is this likely a problem with the start button, or the motor? The belt is fine.


It's not the start button if it responds to the button. Make sure the motor spins freely. If so, make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so, check the start capacitor (if equipped) Good luck.

When I push the start button the drum seems to be stuck but I can pull on the belt and it goes around.


It could be that you have a drive motor problem, Ive seen this before. Sometimes the dryer will make a buzzing or humming sound when you push the start button.

My neptune dryer sounds like it is going to start but then fails


sounds like a bad motor. when it hums when you push start, open the door. put a piece of tape on the door switch to hold it in. at the same time, push the start button and turn the tub with your other hand. if it starts, this only confirms it is a bad motor. the motor will need replaced. good luck. shane

Maytage MDE3080DAYW


Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

When I push the start button, the unit just buzzes or hums.


You have a broken drum belt. The hum you hear is the motor spinning at high speed.

Maytag dryer mod #mde600ayw only makes a humming noise when start switch pushed will not turn.


a hum with a burning smell means the motor winding has failed.
you can try this: open the door and hold in the door switch, have another person hold the start button. You manually roate the drum by grabbing a fin and moveit while the unit is humming.IF the dryer starts, you need a motor.
Good Luck!

Maytag electric dryer when i set dial to desired setting i here a humming sound prior to pushing start button it has never done this before also the clothes is VERY hot when i take it out model ...


it sounds like a shorted heater element, this would also cause the heat to stay on at 110 volts which would make the clothes very hot since the element doesn't completely shut down. if it is a loud hum it could be a stuck motor switch but in this case the dryer usually won't start.

Maytag Neptune Dryer humming but not running


This sounds like the motor is siezed or burned out. I wish I knew how much a motor is, but the Neptune is a good dryer so it would probably be worth it to get a new motor if indeed that's the problem.
