could be a few things you will need to determine what is your repair costs versus dryer worth, I would suggest eBay for any and all parts( I will give you an online website, get the part# and search on eBay), Here is a website the will help with the narrowing of what is wrong with the dryer( note some dryers have a reset switch on the motor, what it does is if a heavy strain is put on the motor it trips):

When hit the start button makes niose but wont spin. took top off and belt isnt broken, when try to help it spin it wants to spin but cant.

Hi- Yeah, sounds like your motor is shot, the start winding is bad. Sometimes you can "jump start" them but usually it doesn't last. If this is an older unit I would just replace the dryer, dryers are pretty cheap right not and the cost of the new motor is around $125 plus an hour of labor. Usually not worth it. Good luck.

Smoke coming out of my Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 22550300C

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

Dryer runs for 5 seconds and turns off

Motor replacement needed.Nothing in the dryer is going to shut down the motor after five seconds.
You have a bad motor. The good news is they are not that expensive and the motor is the heart of the machine. Buying a new motor is like getting a new machine.

Maytag neptune dryer wont restart mde 3000 aya

Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Good luck!
