Could be an obstruction in the blower or your motor is burnt up.

Rare cases if you have a control board the relays on it could be burnt

Dryer makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on but it doesn't come on, just buzzes.


Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when i try to turn it on, but it won't turn on at all. What could the issue be?


The motors centrifugal switch may be stuck. Try having someone start it while pressing in the door switch while you rotate the drum with your hand by grabbing one of the drum vanes. I don't know which direction your drum rotates. Try both. This may start the drum turning on its own and resetting the switch.

Hi,
There can be many reasons why your dryer will not turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out what is happening...

Drum will not turn and there is no heat.


This dryer has a circuit board that controls virtually everything. If it makes a buzzing noise when you press the power button to turn on the control panel, it's probably not going to be an easy fix. When you hire a professional, you avoid buying expensive parts that you might not need, such as a control board. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you press the start button, it's possible that it could be a motor or belt problem. But again, I'd recommend a service call for this one.

GE Dryer making buzzing noise


It does not look like there is an access panel from the back side on this model, but you may be able to try this: Remove power to dryer. Take screw out that holds the end of the exhaust pipe to the back of the dryer and pull out the metal exhaust pipe. Now you should be able to look in and see the end of the motor and the belt. Release the belt and turn the motor shaft by hand. If it turns easily, the drum supports slides are pobably shot ( WE1M333) and possibly the part that holds them (
WE3M26) which causes exsessive drag on the drum. If the motor shaft does not turn easily, hope you have a sock or wash rag stuck in the blower wheel. If not, motor is bad. To get at the blower or the other parts you will have to take the screws out holding the top down to the front of the dryer, then remove the screw on each side near the top holding the front on. Lift the front slightly and remove. You don't have to take off the wires to the door switch. Parts I listed are supporting the drum on the top side. If you need more info do an "ask me" question.
