If Dryer does not tumble , check the following:
" It won't tumble If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
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:
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

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

Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, GLER341AS2, is making a humming noise. It could be a possible issue within your belt, motor, or the blower assembly. The manufacture provides to a dryer preventative maintenance kit part number 5304457724 and it costs $45.12 plus tax and shipping. I would also recommend contacting a professional to help avoid any unnecessary purchases. I hope this helps. -Matt
