The humming noise is most likely coming from the timer motor and not from the drive motor. This characterizes a problem with a blown thermal fuse which is wired in series with the drive motor and located on the blower housing. Power to the motor is cut when the thermal fuse blows open and consequently the drive motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the drive motor cannot run.
Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.
Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket
and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint
duct and remove the duct to access the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat.
most likely motor will need to be replaced if you do repair try to remove blower wheel first you will need a 1/2" rachet and a 7/8 for the motor to hold motor in place you may need to replace also they will lock together some times
Put a good fittting wrench on the blower nut and hit it with an impact wrench(left handed threads righty lucy). OR do it the tried and true redneck way get a friend to hold a pipe wrench on the pulley inside the dryer, around the back slide a small hammer handle or piece of wood in between two blower blades at 3 o'clock position and slam downwards to pop that mutha loose. The threads are left handed(backwards). That blower does not wanna go easy.
Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)
