Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.

Had just dried a load of clothes and when i started to dry the last load, turned the knob and it just buzzed. Tried it again, and it does nothing! This is a hotpoint, front load electric dryer.

Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Static popping and buzzing sounds come from the speakers when the car is running. The Radio is not turned on and it will continue for a long time, quit then start again as you are driving.


Is it a factory amplified system? Could be the volume knob. Might try unplugging the radio for test purposes and see if it still pops and buzzes to get a better idea of where to go next

When we go to turn the dryer on it makes a buzzer sound, how so we make the dyer work?


Is it the same buzz that goes off when the load is finished? The knob may be broken, if so what you need to do is pull it off and see if the handle knob is really turning the smaller knob, if it isn't, replace the knob.
If the knob is fine then you have a problem with your controls and you need someone with electrical experience to look at it.

This may be a thermal overload switch which is probably located underneath the top of the dryer. When you find it, bypass it to see if that is the problem. If so, replace it for about 10-12 dollars. Check the breakers first, then the connections in the back to see if they are secure.
