Question about Estate TGDS840JQ Gas Dryer
When i push the start button the dryer makes a humming noise but the drum does not turn at all, i opened it and only when i turn the shaft by hand, was when the drum started turning. so it needs help, is like there is not enough power on the motor to make start.
Sounds like the blower wheel has something jamed in it or the motor is bad, check the blower wheel to see if it turns freely. If blower wheel is un-obstructed it's going to be a replace motor i'm afraid..Hope you find this helpfull.

I would start by checking the belt to see that there is not too much slack in it. Applying a belt dressing spray may help. If not, and there is too much slack in the belt, it might be time to replace it. That is a lot less expensive than actually replacing the motor. Hopefully it won't come to that.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

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.
