I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model #WED6200SW1. The control panel turns on and when I hit start the heating element heats but it will not start. There is a slight humming noise but I can't tell if it's...


The humming noise indicates the motor is either trying to run, but not doing so because of a bad motor or capacitor, or the motor IS running but cannot spin the drum because the drive belt is off/broken. If you can spin the drum easily by hand, the belt is probably the problem.

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 you press start on my dryer is is making a humming noise but will not come on


On the info provided, it may be the drum belt has broken and the motor is not able to turn the drum. The humming you hear is most likely the motor turning as it should, but due to the broken belt, the motor is not able to turn the drum.

Model # 72852 Burning smell Drum does not turn but a humming noise When door is closed it hums without the start button being pushed.


f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Drum not turning, hear humming noise


the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

Kenmore electric dryer when i turn it on all I hear is a humming noise


 hold down the door switch with tape and try to start it while turning the drum inside. if the motor doesn't start then you might need a new motor; expensive.
if the humming noise is actually the motor running and the tub is not turning then it is the belt; inexpensive.
