The motor capacitor has failed. It's on the motor under a small cover. Replace it.

Danby wont start only hums


Sounds like it make be the belt is broke, without this the wheel is unable to turn the drum.
failing that it may be a sinister motor problem needing a rewind of motor which usually is not worth it...
best of luck either way

I bought an amana dryer, the tumbler does not turn, it just humms.


What is the complete model number of your unit?
The start relay on the motor is bad. Open the door, hold the door switch in and spin the drum as someone else pushes the start button and post back your results.

I have a affinity dryer that just humms when I turn it on. I have power 220 at recpt. no code reading?


Sounds like the motor could be locked up, Is the dryer turning if not belt broke , Check belt, take the front access plate where the motor is located and turn it on check to see if the shaft of the motor is turning at normal speed and again check the belt, with power off and belt is not broken by hand turn the drum to make sure nothing is blocking it from spinning freely. if that is free and clear than my bet is on the motor itself as it sounds like it is in locked rotor.
Cause's of locked rotor
Motor seen its better days
if equipped the start/run capacitor could be out
Hope this helps.

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.

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.

Dryer will not start or turn when you push the start button. At first it would just humm when you pressed the start button now it won't do anything. the drum belt is on and you can turn the drum by hand.


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

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