Whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

SOURCE: humming noise, runs and stops thru out drying process.

You have a motor that has a thermal overload built into it. This is for the dryer's protection. My best guess is to replace the motor. But before you do all that, make sure the wiring is good from the receptacle to the controls in the back of the dryer. It could not have a good connection thus causing this noise.

SOURCE: Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...

It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

Drum knock when spin cycle


Hello.
Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator.
1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded.
2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle.
3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes.
4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle.
Thanks.

The dryer ran for two complete cycles. the third cycle the dryer would not start. When the timer was switched it made a humming noise.


Hello,

That sounds pretty typical of a motor that has tight bearing and shutting off due to excessive heat being created at the motor because of the tight bearings on the motor. What will usually happen whena motor is very tight is that it will run a few minutes (or cycles) and get too hot and shutoff until it cools down and will start then shutoff agian once too hot.Along with it not starting because of the friction of the tight bearing the motor will make a humming noise and may or may not start.

Kenmore electric dryer 70 series - it starts, motor sounds horrible, turns, gets hot, almost a burnt smell. what do i do?


Greetings,
it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps

We moved our whirlpool duet washing machine to do some work in our laundry room. we moved it back and put a load in and it's making a loud humming noise during the cycle. what could be wrong. we turned it...


You may have dislodged the suspended innards from shock mounts that keeps some nose from escaping. I would remove the back panel and inspect the insides to see if one or more corners of the suspended assembly are now out of place.

Dryer quit working, When I turn the timer to desired cycle and push start it makes a Humming noise but does not tumble?


The humming noise is more than likely your drive motor. Replace your drive motor.

No response from dryer at all


Make sure that you physically reset the breaker. Sometimes, it can fool you. Also check where the wiring harness is attached at the back of the dryer. They can short out sometimes. After you have established power to the unit, you can focus on the timer. Generaly this is the culpirt.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
