Your brushes in the motor are shot. Or the drill got wet and the bearings are seizing up.

Doesn't want to go onto spin cycle just makes funny noises

Possible that there is slippage when the program comes to the spin mode. Please check the drive and see if the belt is slipping or the drive is jammed. If not check the motor drive.

Is making humming noise and drum does not turn.

the noise is coming from the motor,you either have something jammed in the motor or blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning or the motor is bad,try this,open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with your other hand and have someone else hit the start button at the same time,this sometimes starts the motor but the motor still has to be changed out.let me know what you find and send the model number

Dryer wont start, makes humming noise and thats all

sounds like you have abad motor,try spinning the drum by hand,if it moves most likely it's the motor,or the belt broke and is jammed in the motor stopping it from spinning,or if it's hard to turn something could be stuck in the blower wheel but it's the motor making the need to get in there and check it out.the motors are easy to change out on a kenmore dryer,also next time send the model number.let me know what you find

Will not agitate or spin, belt is fine. Motor is not turning, just making a humming noise. Is the motor bad or are there brushes that can be replaced or.....?

move the belt to see if it is not jammed and spins the rotor. If that is the case, the Humming noise is then an indication of a burned motor and not from a good motor trying to drive a jammed belt.

Machine does not spin...makes a noise

your drive coupler is most likely broken.It is located between the motor and transmission.very easy will need to take the screws from the face of the machine out and lift the face .make sure to unplug.their are 2 gold clamps that hold your cabinet in place.take screw driver and pop clips out.pull your lid switch connection loose and pull cabinet will see your pump in front bottom of machine.remove clamps that hold pump in place then remove the power clip from your motor.remove 2 clamps that hold motor in place and your drive coupler is will be 2 white plastic pieces and a black rubber piece in center of 2.check if teeth are broke or if craked.
