Amana fridge periodically makes a buzzing noise 4 times every 3 min for about 10-15 min then goes away for awhile then does it all over again

Maytag dryer drum not rotating

Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has slipped off or broken. Not sure if I would consider this a DIY project, but if this is the problem, a professional fix should not cost much.

My Maytag Bravos dryer is brand new. It is the quiet series 300, but is the loudest dryer I have ever owned. It makes like a loud vibrating, humming noise. Is this normal? I am now drying my second load of...

People, the first words the poster said were that the dryer was "brand new". All of your suggestions assume the dryer had extensive use. This sounds like a factory defect issue!!!! My brand new Maytag Cabrio gas dryer is also making an obnoxious buzzing sound that seems to cycle on and off as the gas ignites. The buzzing sounds electronic not mechanical. What would buzz when the burner is active?

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

Not so much the heating element but the seal of othe drum to the door side and the back side need to be replace after long usage it get worn out and heat leak from the drum ...out
also make sure the duct from the unit to outside the house is clean from lint and dust...

Amplifier turns on and works till it gets hot then

This sounds like a problemn the power supply area, possibly near the filter caps. I would look for a cold soldering joint at or near the filter caps as a start.

The problem is a mechanical connection problem since vibration "fixes it".

Capacitors are heavy and often due to handling the soldering is broken at the terminals. As unit heats, these start to oxidize and break contact, but vibration temporarily restores them.

Loud buzzing noise

seems the the motor is ****! avoid switching it more further to prevent its motor from burning!
motor could be stuck due to rust build-up.
or something might have jammed along the motor area or along the rotating part.

Buzzing sound

This could be caused by vibration of the element coil supports (ceramic pieces that hold the element) as the machine is running. It could be intermittent due to the expansion and contraction of the coils when heating up and cooling down. See if moving the dryer while it's "buzzing" makes any difference in the sound.
If this is the case, you can replace the heating element or try re-leveling the machine. As a quick fix, tweaking the coil or supports is also possible but I wouldn't recommend this unless you feel comfortable doing so or you have experience.
