Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
Push start button and drum doesn't turn. I am hearing humming sound, as if the motor wants to start, but does not. I lifted the top and gave the drum a half turn and it worked fine. I pulled the drum out, belt is fine, rollers are fine, pulley is fine, heating element fine, blower fine also.....I have no clue.
Again today, hit start and a humming noise but no drum turn. Lift the top of the dryer off, give it a turn and it came on no problem. Any ideas?

f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
