Sounds like it make be the belt is broke, without this the wheel is unable to turn the drum.
failing that it may be a sinister motor problem needing a rewind of motor which usually is not worth it...
best of luck either way

Hum but wont start


The slight hum you are hearing is the start windings in the motor. This is a common problem in the kenmore dryers and there is nothing you could have done to keep it from happening. the part number on the motor is 279827 and price from sears is $105.99.

My Danby dryer dcd5505w hums but wont tumble. I opened it up and pushed it and it ran for a bit and stopped. I pushed it again and it ran for about 3 minutes before stopping. The motor is okay and so is...


the motor is most likely the cause. once it starts to hum, it's not spinning :( bad brushes inside. replace the motor or get new dryer, sorry :(

Dryer just sits and hums


if you push the start and it just humms it is a bad dryer motor to weak to kick on,to confirm this have sombody hold the dryer door button in and turn the drum when you push the start button,if it jump starts you know it's a bad motor-mike

Dryer wont run/push power-sounds like it wants to start/nothing


i get this all the time,yes it is the motor,what happens is the motor gets so weak that it will no longer turn the drum it just hums,a motor on ebay runs about $65,your model number if you want to tackle it is inside the dryer door-mike

After water turns on, nothing else happens


If you are hearing a humm noise after it stops filling, your motor is locked up.
