Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Pressing the start button on my dryer produces only a faint buzzing sound and the dryer does not start. All electrical connections check by a licensed electrician and 240V measured at the outlet. Dryer was working perfectly until a recent move but there is no visible damage to the dryer from the move.

Inglis Gas Dryer... mercy me?


Sounds like what you said. Time for a motor. The motor has an internal overload and will shut the machine off if the motor runs hot.
Good Luck

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

Amana gas dryer wont start. just makes a faint buzzing noise


The drive motor starting capacitor is likely dead. This can be tested if you are competent enough to take the thing apart and use an electronic multimeter. Otherwise it is a cheap part to replace, depending on how much the repair guy charges for labor and to be called out.

Dryer doesn't start

If one is blown then it may cause this problem....... Back to thermal fuse, they are easy to check... If not thermal fuse it could be the start switch or relay...... if you still have problems please respond back with model and make...
