Sounds like the motor drive to the drum is frozen. Machine shuts down via overload protector.
Free up the motor and all will be fine.

SOURCE: Dryer noise

TAKE THE DRYER APART USE A LITTLE MOTOR OIL TO GREASE ALL SHAFTS ON IDLER PULLEY AND USE A BIT OF VASALINE ON THE REAR BEARING ON THE BACK OF THE DRUM THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE GRINDING NOISE

SOURCE: cuts off makes noise

Sound like the dryer bearing or rollers are out. This would make it very hard for the dryer to start and run. You must pull the dryer drum out to access the parts. I'm sure you will see the problem right away once it is apart.

I went to start my dryer, and it just makes a noise and stalls, then cuts out


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT 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

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ut push start button for continuity with a meter when pushed in the on position, it may have gone bad.

Car cut off at red light


Toni, is your car making noises while your driving? Although your lights work, still check the battery level. Make sure everything is the way it should be first. If your check engine light is on, get it scanned at Autozone, it is free. You may have an issue with your transmission or shifting components. Did it continue to make noises when shifting? I need a little more detail please.

When the dryer starts it makes a quick grinding noise like it is having trouble starting. After only 1 second that noise goes away and the dryer appears to be working fine. It will stay running anywhere...

Hunting boots no no!


If you have one of those fubuloso wrinkle guard whirlpools, they will buzz and start back up on their own in the cool down portion of the cycle the idea being the 2nd timer will keep the clothes from wrinkling by buzzing and then coming to life for a few minutes. Then it waits 10 minutes and if you aint got the clothes out or opened the door then it will repeat.
