My Samsung dryer does not turn, it humms. Drum with rotate by hand.


oh oh the huming coming from motor area? bad motor if so, however if the belt broke the motor may have a safety belt switch that is on off position, but u would not be getting a humming sound? more of a whizzing sound?

I have a affinity dryer that just humms when I turn it on. I have power 220 at recpt. no code reading?


Sounds like the motor could be locked up, Is the dryer turning if not belt broke , Check belt, take the front access plate where the motor is located and turn it on check to see if the shaft of the motor is turning at normal speed and again check the belt, with power off and belt is not broken by hand turn the drum to make sure nothing is blocking it from spinning freely. if that is free and clear than my bet is on the motor itself as it sounds like it is in locked rotor.
Cause's of locked rotor
Motor seen its better days
if equipped the start/run capacitor could be out
Hope this helps.

Dryer was working fine, then it stopped its cycle and would not restart for next load. humming sound, drum will not turn?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The hum sound that you hear is coming from the motor that has gone bad and needs replacement. When the dryer humms and will not work it is the motor that has gone bad, you can also check the wire connections from the control to the motor before replacing it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

If your hearing a buzzing noise, motor.. If it sounds like the motor is running, could be a belt.
