Re: it wont turn over

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.

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

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.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button

My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Dryer will not start

Hello jslovik,

You said, When you turn the knob a buzzing sound starts but that's it. The Buzzing continues as long as the start button is turned. Dryer is only 2 years old. Any help is very appreciated.
