Whirlpool dryer The dryer buzzes when turned on and the drum does not move. I've already changed the belt, but it did not help. When I push the start button, it does nothing for it. Any idea what I should change next?

Try this at your own risk lol set the timer open the door hold down the door switch and give the tub a hard spin with your hand clockwise see if it starts if it does the switch in the motor is bad and you will need to replace or clean the motor

you have a bad motor,if you open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other and have someone else push the start button on and if by helping it to spin it starts usually the motor is bad but i did find on the maytag neptune style dryer that the belt cut into the belt pulley and was holding up the drum and the motor was buzzing like it was bad but like i say usually it's the motor.next time send the brand name and model number and i can help you out better.

it could be the extra weight on the motor and the motor is bad,try this,open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other hand and have someone push the start button,if it runs and most of the time it does because you're helping it along you need a new motor.one more thing,if the filter is in front,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and spin the drum,if the blower wheel moves with the drum you have a bad motor,if it doesn't you have something stuck in the blower wheel and it jams up the motor because it's attached to the motor shaft.

When i push the button to start dryer I can hear a buzzing sound, but drum will not turn. I have already tried replacing the belt.


Check to see if your motor is running without the belt...if it is not, then replace the motor.
If it does run....rehook back up the belt and then try turning the drum by had to see if it will spin on its own...if it does...replace the motor.

Chances are it's the drive that drives the belt around the drum, or the motor is on its way out. Have a technician inspect the belt/belt drive system as well as the motor.
