Dryer tumbler will not turn when start button is pushed.

Kenmoe Gas Dryer model 110.87692300 stopped between loads yesterday. It will not start when I hit the "Push to Start" butten. The a slight hum and feel of electricity when the button is pushed, but the tumbler will not start turning. Any suggestions?

    Already checked the belt and removed panel to view controls. Appears something is preventing the motor from turning the belt. Is there a fuse or control that might have burned out and maybe in need of replacing?

Frigidaire dryer hums when button is pushed in but won't start


ok can u turn the tumbler freely,
if no well there is something stuck in you blower like a sock or something
if the tumbler turns freely
keep the door open and hold the door switch
try pushing the start button
and tuning the tumbler, yes all three at the same time lol you may need a hand
try tuning the tumbler when you hear a hum
if it takes off bad news your start winding on the motor is bad or the capacitor depending on your model
if it does not turn, but the hum continues longer than 1-2 minutes it could be just a belt

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

Dryer, gas model #ddgg57806clad stopped working after it finished the first load of the day. It doesn't feel like it's totally connected. The timer clicks, but it doesn't feel like there's power going to...


Hi, I'm posting my own solution to my problem. Thank you fixya and the many people who had a similar problem who sent in solutions to others on this site.
The door switch to the dryer was hitting a worn out area of the gasket surrounding the door and prevented a connection to the tumbler. After manually checking the tumbler to make sure it wasn't stuck, I temporarily put a piece of masking tape over the switch with the door open. Then I turned the timer knob on while the door was open to see if the dryer started and voila! it started. Hope this solution helps someone else. Iris
