Brand new Maytag dryer is buzzing

Thanks for the help ahead of time. After you set the timer my dryer just buzzes when you push the start button( and it stays buzzing), this just happened out of nowhere. What should I do? Are there any secrets to this problem...I really don't want to pay my repair man a million dollars to fix it. The dryer is still under a year old. And hopefully I won't have to drop it off for any warranty work. It is the Maytag "Dependable Care" dryer. Please help!!

My dryer initially makes a buzzing sound and will not begin the cycle until I give it a few turns manually...


you have a bad motor,if you open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other and have someone else push the start button on and if by helping it to spin it starts usually the motor is bad but i did find on the maytag neptune style dryer that the belt cut into the belt pulley and was holding up the drum and the motor was buzzing like it was bad but like i say usually it's the motor.next time send the brand name and model number and i can help you out better.

Maytag Performa dryer blows fuse after clothes get hot. I cleaned a large buildup of lint from inside the dryer all the way to my roof. I then replaced the hi limit thermostat, thermal fuse and dryer...


Hello,
their are two possiblities causing that

1) while cleaning the lint from the motor a wire accidently got pulled of of the motor switch

2) to me the buzzing when start button is pushed and may or may not start,the motor is bad

When trying the trick to start the motor by hand the door switch also must be pressed in

Maytag dryer makes an electrical buzzing noise when start button


It sounds to me like the motor is not turning, but the heating element is coming on. with no air flowing over the element, it is getting too hot. Can you operate the start switch with the top tilted up so you can see if the motor is turning but the drum is not, and just where the buzzing is coming from. Also, I would try the dryer on manual setting and on air dry to see if any setting works. Good luck

Maytag MDG9316AWW Wont start


HI again. this seems to be a wiring harness issue. there may be a lose wire connection or some corrosion on the couplers that are connected to the timer and push button starter. I recommend checking all wires and clips for lose and corroded ends. make sure the clips aren't touching any other individual wire clips. The second issue may be the timer itself. it may have some damage with in the circuitry.

This reoccurring issue leads me to believe that there is something abnormal within the current flow. this. This abnormality is continuing to blow the starter switch. there are only three areas you can check to find this issue. the timer itself should be check for proper voltage and the wires and harness should be inspected as well. The last check would be the terminal block. Check the terminal block for lose power cord wire connectors.

If you have anymore question, please feel free to ask:)

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed


It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.
