If the motor hums when you push the start button but wont move you probably have a frozen motor. happens from too much lint packed around the motor and ruins the bearings. if you can access the motor from a front kick panel you can check this. possibly something is jammed in the blower wheel as well. unplug it and check it out

SOURCE: My dryer stopped working yesterday. When I press the button to start the dryer it hums, but it doesn't start turning. If I push the button 3-4 times in a row, it hums each time until about the 4th pre

Sounds like the motor is cutting out on its thermal fuse. The only cure is to change the motor.

SOURCE: Push start and motor hums, but nothing else works.

Hey, either the belt is broke or something has happened to the tensioner pulley so remove front or rear panel & visually inspect & if belt is broken look & see if part # is still visible on belt surface & order a new belt.

It's probably the belt that turns the drum. Remove the front panel to see if the belt is broken

Kenmore dryer model 110.74994300 push start does not stay on


Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.
Kenmore Whirlpool Dryer Won Start Easy Fix
Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

When I push the start button, the unit just buzzes or hums.


You have a broken drum belt. The hum you hear is the motor spinning at high speed.
