LE errors mean the motor is locking up and cannot turn the drum. If the drum turns freely by hand then it could be https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Washing-Machine/406-200-684484-/LG-LE-MOTOR-ERROR-Motor-Stator-overheat-or-connection-error-WM2016CW
If that is not the problem then the motor needs replaced.

Hotpoint TDC62p is making a buzzing/humming sound and the drum will not spin though it does move if you push it.


Either something is binding the blower wheel up or the motor is bad. The best thing is to take the front of the machine off to access the blower wheel to verify ifanything is indeed binding it.IF not read the next section.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Start of the cycle the drum will start to turn but just hums. trys to turn the other way and does the same. it will eventully stop and throw a LE code = over load and motor. All this with or with out...


sounds like if it hums something has the drum fouled if nothing catching the drum then i would say the motor is at fault sounds like the motor is trying to start off the running winding instead of the start winding or a starting capacitor on the motor is bad

Hi,
Kindly remove the back panel of the unit and check whether the belt is properly fixed if it is ok means check the wire connection if everything is fine. kindly check the motor humming sound once the water is filled if you find the humming sound means kindly replace the motor

Press the start button on dryer, it hums but wont turn. With 2 people pressed the start button again, held the door switch, reached in turned the drum, it hummed stopped humming then no more nothing....


Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

Humming sound


If you open the door can you turn the inner drum by hand , if you can is any there any resistance or does it just spin freely

It sounds as if your drive belt has snapped and what you hear is the motor running on its own

If the drum spins freely you will need to take the back off the machine and see what state the drive belt is in

Ps

Is there heat inside the drum when you try to make it work without a load.
