My DLG7188RM runs and dries fine. But every 20 minutes or so while it's simply resting (not in use) there is a loud buzzing noise coming from the back of the machine. It lasts about 5 seconds or so and then shuts off.

Can you help me diagnose this problem?

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer Model# 110.96551220. When i push the strat button, the dryer does not start but I hear a surging type noise. Any idea what is wrong?

you will need to remove the front panel, unplug dryer, open dyer door remove screws from inside the door frame, with a flat tip screw driver gently pry up as it is clipped and it will pop up, you will need to disconnect the door switch and sit the front panel aside. The top of the dry will lift up, on the motor look for two switches.buttons one is a reset the other is a trip. you will hear a click when you reset it. hopefully this is the problem, if not then see if you can turn the drum, it should be hard to turn but turn all the same. Hope this helps tim

When I press the start button on my Kenmore dyer it make a noise but won't start

if it's a humming or like a buzzing noise it's coming from the motor.try spinning the drum by hand,if it moves freely it could be the motor,if the drum is hard to move you could have something like a sock stuck in the blower wheel or something is jamming up the machine and the motor can't move.also just yesterday i found the belt broke and was rapped around the motor so you'll have to get in there and take a look.good luck,let me know what you find

Kenmore model 66812694 - quits running, buzzing noise at restart

bad motor,when you hear that noise open the door,hold in the door switch with one hand and with the other spin the drum and have someone else start it while you do this,all your doing is helping the motor start to spin but it sounds like a bad motor,this could be from not cleaning out the dryer,if it's gas it should be done once a year,electric can go another 6 months because there isn't an open flame in there,if you clean out the dryer and vent line the clothes will dry on time,the parts will last longer and you won't have a dryer fire.

Dyer was grinding, then won't run

Sounds to me like you motor has froze up. Is there any smell coming from the dryer? The fuse would not cause this. A fuse would make the dryer do nothing when you hit the start button.

check the thermal fuse on the blower housing, remove the back panel and you will see a white fuse with blue wires connected to it it is to the left of the vent tube of the dryer if it shows no contunity then the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced
