SOURCE: The Drum on my LG DLE2512W Dryer will not turn

no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

I have DBSR4EB3WW model number. Last night I was drying clothes, tryed to turn dryer back on , turned the button to right to start clothes and all it would do is make a humming noise. ...

Hello Deborah, it could be a number of things, First the belt, usually if you hear a humming and the drum isn't turning, Its a broken or slipped belt, the hum you hear is the motor turning, But with no belt the drum can't turn other things that can go wrong and cause this are the safety switch located by the dryer door has failed, or a thermostat located in the rear of the machine is bad or stuck if you feel you can check these things , thats cool, just let me know you want to give it a try ,

When you press start on my dryer is is making a humming noise but will not come on

On the info provided, it may be the drum belt has broken and the motor is not able to turn the drum. The humming you hear is most likely the motor turning as it should, but due to the broken belt, the motor is not able to turn the drum.

Drum not turning, hear humming noise

the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

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.
