If Dryer does not tumble , check the following:

" It won't tumble If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.


  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.


  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.


If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it."Source Repaiclinic

Why gas Frigidaire dryer makes humming noise? will not start


Hello rodney flowers, thanks for your post!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is making a humming noise and will not start. It could be a possible problem with your burner, igniter, or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by either unplugging your dryer or flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a diagnosis on your washer. This will help avoid purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Rodney, if the humming noise sounds like your motor is running but the drum does not turn you probably have a broken belt.

Frigidaire sensor gas dryer will not turn on, power supply and breakers ok, Makes a noise like it wants to turn on. Drum is free and moveable.


if you can move the drum by hand and it's humming it sounds like you have a bad motor or the belt broke and is jamming the motor and that's why the drum moves,you have to get in there and check it out,open the door and the model number should be there,next time send model number
