Try holding the door switch in by hand and turn the drumm at the same time some one is trying to start it. if it starts then you could have a dirty motor and contacts and needs to be cleaned.
you could also have a problem with a faulty door switch.

Hum when you hit start button rr lexus@yahoo.com


If you are pressing the start button and getting only humming, that is a motor. What is happening, the motor is trying to start, but the motor has been damaged in some way, so it can't start. All you get is the motor humming. If you post a model number, I can tell you the part number of the motor and an average price :) Having a motor changed by a local service man should generally cost around $200.

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up
