The problem here is that the motor is starting to go bad. The start winding wires are going bad. When the motor gets HOT, the thrmal fuse turns the machine OFF until the motor cools down and then it HUMMS as it tries to start or will just HUMM and not start at all.
When you replace the motor, ALSO check that the hole in the wall to wherever it goes out is NOT CLOGGED UP by a birds nest or LINT BUILD UP that will restirct the hot air from exiting the dryer.
PLEASE CHECK this so that it will not damage the new motor you put in.

More info - If it only makes the noise when the car is moving its probably a wheel bearing - if it makes a whining noise whether its moving or not it sound like the power steering pump is on its way out - it could be as simple as adding fluid - start the vehicle and while sitting there turn the wheel left and right - the noise should get louder and softer - if it doesnt - its one of the other accessories - a/c pump or the alternator itself -

Won't agitate nor spin


Sounds like a faulty transmission. Also, make sure this machine is not sitting in a cold environment. If it is...run a blow dryer under it for awhile and try again. But really I think the transmission is gone.

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...


Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

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.

A loud intermitant buzzing coming from the back of the fridge


either the noise is coming form he ice maker fill valve( but if its of and still aking noise i doubt it. it also possible that the noise is coming from the compressor itself, overheating nad trying to restart in which case would give a slight "buzz" noise for 5secs or so then "click" off, and wait maybe 3 min to restart again. look for melted ice andperhaps your ice dream ont as hard as it should be???

Kenmore Clean Touch dryer making buzzing sound and


Ya, happened to me. Sounds like you may have a clogged vent. (in the tube, or the dryer itself. Try cleaning that out really good. Then, double check that the venting is secured properly. If not, may overheat and shut down. I think that's what's going on. After you clean tubing (And the inside tube on dryer), the buzzing will continue for a while (days) until itr resets. If it runs after this, but still buzzes, that's your problem. Hope this helps you!

Power to compressor must be off (about 5 minutes) before a restart should be tried. Some of these relays are thermal and must cool down before power is reapplied.
