Does this drum go round, if not replace the capacitor which in most models is fastened to the main motor, if this doesn't cure the fault you could be looking at a replacement motor, assuming you have checked for any jamming of the drum, does it rotate be hand as well a working motor will just buzz if the drum is jammed hope i have helped, if so please rate me well

I have and Amana electric dryer when I push the start button it buzzes and does not start

Wild guess the dryer is overloaded, Or too hot and needs to cool down. There are temp sensors that will prevent starting when too hot. You may have drive belt or fan problems exhaust pipe clog.

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.

Knemore 80 series dryer won't start every time

Go to and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed

It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.

This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Whirlpool dryer (electric)

did the button click when you pressed it when it worked fine, if it doesn't click now then you need a new button switch, which should be fairly cheap and fairly easy to replace yourself with care if the button should be pressed to start without normally clicking and needs to be pressed to restart each time you open the door then the start relay could be faulty, sound complicated but not the same fault hope i have been of some help, if so please rate me
