First check your breaker. Next I would check thermal fuse.

Kenmore 500 series dryer won't start. Only 2.5 years old.


turn the drum with your hand,if it feels hard to move you could have something stuck in the blower wheel that is below the lint filter and behind the duct that the filter slides into or the belt could be jammed,if it moves try starting it it might start you could have a flat spot on the motor and most likely you'll need to replace it,if it'shumming it's the motor making the sound

It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.

Combo Kenmore dryer buzzes when turned on. Dryer


Your dryer motor is being told to turn, but cannot. One possible reason is due to lint build up on the motor shaft.

Here is how it works: the motor has a set of starter coils, and a set of running coils. There is a momentum actuated sliding switch on the shaft. When the motor starts from the normal rest position, the spring loaded switch on the motor shaft makes contact with the set of starting windings on the A/C motor. When the motor reaches a certain speed, the momentum of the motor causes weights on the collar to try to move outward. Through this outward movement, the force is directed through a mechanism which moves the collar on the shaft to the other set of contacts for the running coils of the motor.

In some cases, lint builds up on the motor shaft and can cause the sliding switch to lock into place instead of being able to slide back and forth. If the collar is locked into place over the running contacts, you could get this buzzing noise. The motor is trying to run, but doesn't have enough torque to start, and therefore will sit and buzz....

Kenmore dryer timer will not turn.


Bad timer motor if you are using timed dry.
If using auto dry probably a bad sensor.
Verify by using any time dry or air fluff cycle and see if the timer moves.
