Try this:
Unplug the dryer, reach inside the drum and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn. Plug the dryer back in a push the start button. Sometimes motors get dead zones in them, and this will move it from that zone.
If that doesn't work, then you will have to go farther.
If you have a front loading machine, remove the front, this will expose the belt and drum, check the belt to see if it is broken, if not then remove the drum and belt and this will expose the motor, idler arm with pulley, Your belt may have slipped off the motor pulley or the idler arm pulley.
Before reassembly, lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One Oil.
I hope this helps

LG Tromm electric dryer model DLE5977B is making an extremely loud humming noise.


Humming is caused when the slow start capacitor on the motor fails. Better to buy a new dryer as the motor is usually around $160. Yours is $145. I suggest you take professional advice on such a high outlay rather than risking the advice of someone who hasn't physically checked the machine. I have two pro dryers in my hotel fail, and they buzzed.

Kenmore elite front load dryer made by lg just set up and when started it emits a steady loud buzzing sound ; not a rattle but electrical


Hi!!
The buzzing sound is the motor trying to kick in, the starting capacitor is not giving it the bust it need to take off. Just replace the motor's starting capacitor/power relay. Go to the following site, enter your Dryer's Model # to order it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Power-Relay/528722
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise and will not turn on. I have to reach in and turn the drum, retry-go through this process several times before it "catches"and turns on iam wondering if it is the belt


Most likely it is the start winding on the motor. The buzz you are hearing is the thermal overload. You would have to replace the motor. Check pricing against a new machin. Sometimes the parts are less cost effective than a new dryer.

Our LG Dryer DLG0332W is about 5 years old and now I have to manually turn the barrel around to get the dryer to start; otherwise when you hit the start button it just buzzes and doesn't start. What do...


the dryer has Defective Drum Glides/Rollers.
The dryer drum rests and spins on a set of rollers and/or drum glides. The glides and rollers provide low friction contact points that allow the drum to turn easily. When the glides and rollers become worn they can cause the drum to drag. The dryer might only spin without a load or only when assisted.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a motor going out. If you take it back apart see how hard the motor is to turn by hand. Also look for lint in the motor by the start switch.
