With the dryer off, try to turn the drum by hand 1/4-1/2 turn, then turn the dryer back on and push the start butteer and see if this helps.
Sometimes motors get a dead zone in them and this will help move it from the dead zone.
If this does not help then your problem could be a bad motor, broken belt, faulty start switch or faulty timer switch.
Hope this helps

Tip

Testing your remote controller.


It's something that i have repeated and that is pretty usefull because everybody can do this at home.

Sometimes it's only a matter of pressing on a button and everything is back to normal but it's not always that easy for everybody to get there...

To make sure your remote is fonctional do this test:

Open your radio and put it on a AM frequency, ideally just noise and not on a used frequency.
Approach your remote emitter to make a direct contact to the antenna.
Press on every button of your remote to test them all.
You will ear a buzz sound each time you press on a button.That means that it is fonctionnal. If one button do not make the buzz there is a problem with that button.
That's it!
If it pass the test then the problem might be a matter of programming the remote. Sometimes you just have to press the component you want to use on the remote.

The remote utilise the am frequecy to transmit that's why it does make interference sound. (buzz)
It won't work on FM frequency.

good luck!

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.
What is the model number?

Buzz noise behind dashboard 2001 GS300 LEXUS


The buzz noise is probably coming from the airflow controls turned off but being stuck in a particular mode such as vents and feet mode or winshield and feet mode, creating a buzzing noise while it is turned off. To stop the buzzing noise turn off the aircondition / heat by pressing the off button, next press the mode button for the fan controls to make the picture point to face only not feet or winshield, this should stop the noise.

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.

Buzzing noise when pressing start button


does the buzzing noise sound more like a hum, if so could be a bad motor or possibly something stuck in blower wheel.
