Dryer buzzes but does not turn on


Reach in there and try turning the drum. If it seems stiff you could have bad glides. Or something in the blower housing. Might even be a bad center tub bearing. Some times the wheel nearest the heater gets overheated due to a kinked or clogged vent. That will cause stalling. If the motor is bad she will be in growl mode. If it just won't start up could just be the above mentioned items. I have plenty of dryer pictorals and manuals on my Youtube DIY Channel

My dryer will only run for 5-10 minutes


sounds like you have a bad motor,when it heats up it's stalling and when you go to restart it there are start windings and run windings in the motor it's not switching over to the run windings so when you hold the start switch in you're sending constant power to the motor,all it does is when you push the button it's a momentary switch power goes to the motor and hits the start winding in the motor should be just for a moment,then it switches over to the run winding and this keeps the motor running,your motor isn't doing this,

Dryer won't start 7yr old dryer, was working fine yesterday, today was making strange buzzing noise while running, stopped it to check, and now won't turn back on.DEAD


Sounds like a defective motor starter contactor. DO NOT continue to try to use the dryer or you'll burn the motor out. The motor starter is built into the motor, but most are replaceable without replacing the entire motor.

Could also be the motor, but sounds like the motor is stuck in 'start' mode and never goes into 'run,' which would be the classic symptom of a stuck motor start contactor.
