Question about Whirlpool WED5500S Electric Dryer
Model DDE 7500GAL WH There's a very faint humming. Apparently it worked fine through one load then wouldn't turn on the next, but if the belt's been stretching out they might not have noticed it slipping.
Once I find my missing socket wrench I can get inside. Will I be able to diagnose the problem visually?
Check that the blower housing is clear of foreign objects by trying to move the drum by hand in a counter clockwise direction ,dont go to far just try and move it, if that is clear, it will move freely, if not clear blower housing, if that is not your problem then you may have a bad motor.

If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
