Won`t start to dry second load of clothes after the first. dryer humms?


If hum is coming from motor and it won't restart until it cools down, it usually means the motor is going bad and overheating. This could also be caused by excessive lint around motor area or blocked vent but usually the motor itself.

Replaced the clutch and motor coupler a month ago. Ran great. Washed tennis shoes. Came in to remove clothes, didn't spin. Wont agitate or spin, i could hear the motor running. Just replaced the motor...


Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

When you turn on the dryer you can hear the motor hum but the drum wont turn ...i checked the belt and it is not broken


When you checked the belt, did you check to see if the motor would turn by hand, if not the motor is locked down and that's why you hear the hum noise, it still has power and still trying to rotate, but from being locked down it has no option but to strain and hum. If that's not it, check around the drum for a sock or small piece of clothing, it can wedge between drum and dryer frame and cause the tub not to rotate just like if the motor were locked down.

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Whirlpool Ultimate care ii Dryer wont tumble


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt,
Motor,
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

Remove the belt,
Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing,
Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

Go here to see a diagram for your model:
one of two types. "H" or "J"

Dryer wont spin


If dryer does not spin it is usually a problem with the belt or the motor. Check also door switch.

See also following indications from Repairclinic:

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.


  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.


  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.


If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Simpson Ezi Loader 5.5kg 45S558E does not complete a cycle when loaded with clothes. Will complete a cycle when no clothes placed in drum.


I'd say that belt might be loose a bit so it slips under load. That would explain why the motor can rotate empty basket but not the loaded (heavy) basket.
