Re: Whirlpool Clean tough gas dryer

Probably, you are hearing the motor turning. The belt likely broke.

Whirlpool gas dryer takes longer to dry though it heats up and turns, yet it has a humming/buzzing noise. What could be the problem?

Had the same problem. There was a bit of a kink in the vent duct which caused lint to build up in duct and also inside the dryer itself over years. I replaced the duct and took dryer apart and cleaned out the air passages.It works great now. As for the humming, mine started about 2 1/2 years ago and I still don't know why.

Whirlpool Dryer Starts fine, but then stops and start button stops working

This is a sign of the Motor failing. The motor is over heating and then wont start again. When the start button is pushed, does it make a humming noise? If so replace drive motor and it will fix it all up!

Amana gas dryer wont start. just makes a faint buzzing noise

The drive motor starting capacitor is likely dead. This can be tested if you are competent enough to take the thing apart and use an electronic multimeter. Otherwise it is a cheap part to replace, depending on how much the repair guy charges for labor and to be called out.

Whirlpool gas dryer won't start

you most likely have a bad motor. Motors run around 100 dollars since the machine is 20 years old it would be a good idea to replace it with a new dryer. if i were you i would stick with a whirlpool product.
