Open the back cover of the dryer and check the belt and the motor.

    if the belt has worn out there will be buzzing noise and also if the bearing has the problem there will be noise.so we should check both.

Dryer not working


How do you know the belt is on? Did you take the unit apart? Maybe a connection to the control knob came off. Otherwise:

1) Check the breaker to see if it has been tripped
2) Dryer plugged in
3) dryer door securly closed
4) if your unit is a single knob with various dryer settings, try a different setting (delicate, permanent press, etc)
5) if your unit has a start button, set the knob to the desired setting first, then press start.

Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.


Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Dryer just stopped working. Turned knob to desired time and pushed start, nothing happens. When knob is on OFF position and I push the start button, it makes the regular BUZZ sound - times up, clothes...


Remove and inspect the timer knob for a crack or missing tension clamp.
Carefully place it back on the timer shaft while paying attention to the (D) shape in the knob and the shaft.
If they are aligned correctly notice where the position arrow is pointing, ie; off---run--etc.
You may well need a new knob.

Igniter only glows on permanent press cycle and not timed cycles


I unplugged the ignitor and put the leads from my multi meter into the plug to monitor the signal to the ingnitor. I got 120 volts only when I turned the timer switch counter clockwise or to the permanent press cycle. When I turned the switch clockwise or to the timed cycle I wouldn't get the voltage to the ignitor. While in the timed cycle, I turned the switch counter clockwise and as I started counter clockwise pressure on the switch knob I got 120 volts to the ignitor. There is a little play in the switch and when taking up the play in the counter clockwise direction the switch would engize the ignitor. The timer switch is bad.

Dryer will not start


Hello jslovik,
Welcome

You said, When you turn the knob a buzzing sound starts but that's it. The Buzzing continues as long as the start button is turned. Dryer is only 2 years old. Any help is very appreciated.

It sounds like the starting switch is bad!

Amana Dryer won't start


Depending on your interpretation of the 'buzzing' sound compared to mine, I'd say it may be a relay chattering or the motor trying to start up but the windings are beginning to fail. You may want to clean the motor housing from dust etc and make sure that you do that with the power disconnected. Also: with no clothes in teh dryer..try rotating it around and feel for any spots in that rotation that may be binding.. if the drum has excessive restriction while rotating.. the motor may not have enough torque to overcome that and just buzz,,, Hope that helps...

Dryer will not start


when you turn the select knob, you set up the internal cams of the timer. when you press to start or pull to start, you energize the timer motor (buzz) the timer opens the water solenoids. the diaphragm switch senses the water level and moves the timer to the next step. agitate starts for the timed cycle. when its finished the motor kicks in in opposite direction to drain and pump water out.
