Blower fan has fluff on stuck to it. It may even be disstorted. If you are really unlucky then it's done the blower fan motor bearings as well.

I assume you fitted the right value capacitor and connected it up correctly,if you have then slip the belt of the motor, and make sure it is free to turn with no resistance.
Try it without the belt on, if it runs o/k then problem is elsewhere, if it still does not run , then you could have faulty motor, and or timer. That is as much as I can help you.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer

Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Amana gas dryer wont start. just makes a faint buzzing noise

The drive motor starting capacitor is likely dead. This can be tested if you are competent enough to take the thing apart and use an electronic multimeter. Otherwise it is a cheap part to replace, depending on how much the repair guy charges for labor and to be called out.

If you hear a buzzing noise when its on then most likely its the motor went bad.. Or you can open up the back panel to see if it has a belt that turns the drum and check to see if the belt is slipping.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise and will not turn on. I have to reach in and turn the drum, retry-go through this process several times before it "catches"and turns on iam wondering if it is the belt


Most likely it is the start winding on the motor. The buzz you are hearing is the thermal overload. You would have to replace the motor. Check pricing against a new machin. Sometimes the parts are less cost effective than a new dryer.

Drum not turning-very loud sound coming frm dryer when turned on


There could be multiple problems with you whirlpool dyer depending on the type of noise you are hearing. If the noise is a low grumble or loud buzzing sound this could indicate a bad motor. Which could explain you not hearing the drum turning. If however you hear a grating or grinding type noise but the drum is turning, this could indicate that something is rubbing or has become jammed inside the blower fan that circulates the air. if this is the case it too may have to be replaced. Also the drum can sometime come off the drum support rollers at the back of the dryer, but this is very uncommon, and only happens if they are very worn or broken. This can easily be diagnosed by a technician and if the motor is fine, will cost little to repair.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Dryer problem


You need to listen for the motor working ? Open the dryer door hold the door switch in and start the dryer . A buzzing sound may indicate a bad motor. If you hear a slight spinning noise ,it may just be the belt.

Screw fell out of pocket between drum and inerds...


dnkmett, the dryer actually comes apart from the rear. Remove the rear top section, remove the 28 screws holding the rear panel, unhook the belt and remove the assy. When putting it back together be sure to reset the broken belt switch after putting the belt back on. That switch is on the motor beside the idler pulley.
