I bought an amana dryer, the tumbler does not turn, it just humms.


What is the complete model number of your unit?
The start relay on the motor is bad. Open the door, hold the door switch in and spin the drum as someone else pushes the start button and post back your results.

PROBLEM WITH AMANA DRYER


If you have to"push start" the motor to get it going, you will need to replace the motor. The windings have become weak and cannot get the initial start cycle going. Here is the motor to order.


The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

You may have a bad motor or the belt is off. Also make sure your drum turns freely.

Have AMANA dryer ALE230RAW. Hear buzz when start


I also have this problem, but it is after the dryer has been running. When the motor is hot, it buzzes and will not run. Sometimes it will run if I turn the drum or take some clothes out. I disassembled the dryer and cleaned the motor of lint. This helped but not completely solved the issue. I have completely removed the motor and will thoroughly clean the motor (stator and brushes) and will try again.
