SOURCE: I have a whirlpool gold gas dryer model

You either have something caught in the blower or you have a bad motor. If you unplug the dryer and pull it out. Then remove the rear panel (1/4" hex screws), looking at it from the rear, the blower is on your left. Remove the two screws that hold the blower housing on. You should be able to get your hand in far enough to see if there is something in the blower.

SOURCE: My dryer stopped working yesterday. When I press the button to start the dryer it hums, but it doesn't start turning. If I push the button 3-4 times in a row, it hums each time until about the 4th pre

Sounds like the motor is cutting out on its thermal fuse. The only cure is to change the motor.

SOURCE: Gas dryer won't start.

if the motor hums when you push the start button but wont move you probably have a frozen motor. happens from too much lint packed around the motor and ruins the bearings. if you can access the motor from a front kick panel you can check this. possibly something is jammed in the blower wheel as well. unplug it and check it out

Sounds like you have a defective timer.
Remove the back cover of the control panel. Locate the timer and check its condition. The contacts may be burned.

usually the humming sound is coming from the motor,try this,open the door,turn the drum with one hand and hold the door switch in with your other hand and have someone else push the start button at the same time,this might help the motor turn on but if it does you need a new motor,if you can't turn the drum you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or something jammed in the motor like a broken belt but like i said a humming sound is usually the motor.

When i turn on the dryer all i get is a humming noise, when i push in the button to start nothing happens


Usually this is a sign that either the motor is in a bind or bad. Sorry to say but the latter is usually the case.

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.

Dryer won't run


Its time to call the repairman. If its the motor humming its either bad or the dryer is froze up and unable to turn causing the motor to hum. Eventually it will trip the breaker.
