Try checking the motor, drive belt & such. the humming sound is likely a motor working against more resistance than it can handle. lubrication of all the bearings & bushings may help as well, many of these have a hole at the top for putting a few drops of oil in. to test if the motor works, remove the drive belt & see if it spins with the load removed.

Stopped working. Circuit breakers are not tripped, electrical plug in all the way

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. After this post I will need your dryers' complete model number For now check the door switch. As you just open or just close the dryer door, listen for an audible "Click" as in a micro-switch clicking sound. No click = door switch problem

Also open the door and turn the dryer drum by hand. It should also be turning the motor as you rotte the drum in both directions. I you can not feel the motor rotating or... it rotates in one direction but not the other there is a belt problem. The drum should not easily turn 360 degrees.

Check the door switch and check the belt. If after this is is still dead... there is more that can be done but, I need a complete model number for further comment. The model number will be 3 digits followed by 8 digits 110.++++++++
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kenmore dryer problem

Good day,
Sounds very much like the motor is going bad. Very slim chance that the timer could cause that problem because of pitted contacts, but that would not explain away the noise when trying to start.
Here's a good tutorial if you want to replace the motor.

Dryer won't start

The problem is likely a malfunctioning centrifugal start switch in the motor.

More info, let me know.

Dryer drum will not turn.


If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.

If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Kenmore dryer not running

Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose.  Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running.  If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.
