You either have something in the blower wheel (maybe fell down thru the lint screen area) or a bad motor . Here in the outskirts of Dallas , we've found snakes which have crawled in thru the vent hose , caught in the blower causing the same....just a hum but no start .

Frigidaire dryer hums when button is pushed in but won't start


ok can u turn the tumbler freely,
if no well there is something stuck in you blower like a sock or something
if the tumbler turns freely
keep the door open and hold the door switch
try pushing the start button
and tuning the tumbler, yes all three at the same time lol you may need a hand
try tuning the tumbler when you hear a hum
if it takes off bad news your start winding on the motor is bad or the capacitor depending on your model
if it does not turn, but the hum continues longer than 1-2 minutes it could be just a belt

Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Motor?


Could be something jamming the fan blade but if the motor shaft turns freely then your motor is bad.

Gas dryer won't start.


if the motor hums when you push the start button but wont move you probably have a frozen motor. happens from too much lint packed around the motor and ruins the bearings. if you can access the motor from a front kick panel you can check this. possibly something is jammed in the blower wheel as well. unplug it and check it out

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up

The problem is the motor switch . Try spinning the drum with the door switch held in and pressing the start button all at the same time .If the problem is lint in the switch that might be all you have to do . If that don't work you will need to replace the motor and no special tool required. I can walk you through it.
