My dryer will only run if i hold in the door switch button and turn the drum while i hit the start button.

That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced.
Now if you press the start button and the machine starts to hum and continues to hum its possible that something has gotten caught in the blower wheel and binding the motor up. Depending on the make and model the location and access to it vaaries.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Drum wont turn.pust start and hear a buzz but drun wont turn

I have found that the switch activated by the door close or turns on the interior light when open on is likely the problem. You may notice that if the door is open and you push the start button, it will buzz. So if the door is closed and you get this buzz when pushing the start button, there is a problem with the door switch. The start button "thinks" the door is open, and therefore not start. The defective door switch needs to be replaced. At least highly likely.

Maytag Performa dryer blows fuse after clothes get hot. I cleaned a large buildup of lint from inside the dryer all the way to my roof. I then replaced the hi limit thermostat, thermal fuse and dryer...

their are two possiblities causing that

1) while cleaning the lint from the motor a wire accidently got pulled of of the motor switch

2) to me the buzzing when start button is pushed and may or may not start,the motor is bad

When trying the trick to start the motor by hand the door switch also must be pressed in

Dryer randomly stops turning.Sometimes it turns and sometimes it doesnt! We have already changed the belt!Dont know what to do...

It sounds like the motor. A loud buzzing on startup is another sign of a motor. It could also be the timer. To check the motor, hole the door switch and the drum while having someone hit the start button. If it is easy to prevent the drum from turning the motor is bad.

My frigidaire dryer model NMER336FSO just out of the blue quit working. When I hit the start button i can hear a loan buzz, but it wont turn on.

It sounds like your Frigidaire may have one or more problems. If your push to start switch is defective then it will have to be replaced. You can test the switch itself by FIRST disconnecting power. Then taking the switch out and setting a voltmeter to test for continuity, then pushing the start button to see if there is on and off contact being made. Part number for the start switch is 131469000. If this is okay and you are hearing a buzz or low grumble noise coming from the motor area. this could indicate a bad motor winding and would probably have to be replaced. part number for the motor is 131560100. Sometimes however the motor can become seized or dirty connections to the motor can occur due to debris or dust bunnies. so make sure the dryer is CLEAN. If you give the drum a turn yourself manually, while trying to start the dryer this can sometimes give the motor the kick it needs. however this is only a quick fix, and not permanent. You have a well built simple dryer, and there isn't a whole lot that can go wrong with it. Hope this helps

Won't come on, just makes a buzzing noise when you turn on knob..

If it makes just a buzzing noise, Your motor has probably gone bad. If you open the doot and hold the door switch in then have someone hit the start button, Then spin the drum by hand and it may start. This tells you that the start windings in the motor are going bad. If this does not work then your motor has totally gone bad.
