If you can do repairs, take off the front cover and remove the belt off the motor then try starting it. if the motor spins then the problem is the rear drum bearing or the felt "bearings" on the door. if the motor does not start even with the belt off, the start wining on the motor is burned up. replacing the motor costs around $150.00

Hi, what you describe indeed sounds very bad, and should be looked into asap, to do this yourself you will need a service and repair manual, accordingly i have provided a link above for you to obtain one.
You will need to be very careful, as with any electrical fault, the service manual has troubleshooting steps for you to follow so you can isolate and repair your problem.
Buzzing noises usually have to do with the motor, or gears belt etc.

On super mario bros on the last castle in world 8 what do you do?

hi, i take it your going on about the part where you keep going but you dont get anywhere what you need to do is turn the sound up so you can hear it bleep when you go a wrong way.

you have three platforms you can run across top middle and bottom now only one of them is correct if you choose the wrong one it will make a short buzz sound but if you have picked the right one it wont make any sound you need to remember or write down which is the right one as when you hear the buzz you have to start off at the start again, so say the first one is top and the second is middle but if you choose top again on the second one it will buzz and you will have to start all over again.

so if you take the top and it dont buzz you know thats the 1st one then on the 2nd lot if you pick the middle and it makes the buzz sound you know you have gone wrong so then it starts again so you choose the top again then choose the bottom on the 2nd section if this dont buzz then you know them 1st 2 sections you got right but then if you get the 3rd wrong you have to start all over again so for example you know the 1st one is top and the 2nd is bottom so on the 3rd section try another level such as bottom again then if that dont buzz you got it right and so on,

i think their is 5 different sections you need to get right before you get to the final bowser.

i hope i have got the right mario im just going back a few years when i had an old nintendo.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution and leave a testimonial as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Maytag dryer makes an electrical buzzing noise when start button

It sounds to me like the motor is not turning, but the heating element is coming on. with no air flowing over the element, it is getting too hot. Can you operate the start switch with the top tilted up so you can see if the motor is turning but the drum is not, and just where the buzzing is coming from. Also, I would try the dryer on manual setting and on air dry to see if any setting works. Good luck

Amana electric dryer just stopped working. I pushed the knob, there was a loud buzzing sound, and then the dryer just stopped

The buzzing sound is the motor trying to start and not being able to. There is either something stuck so that the motor can't turn or the motor is bad. The most likely case is that the motor has failed.
You can trying turning the drum by hand and make sure that it is free. Also by turning the drum you will sometimes get the motor off of a "flat spot" in the motor and it will run for a while again.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.

Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.
