Dryer will not turn on. makes slight buzzing sound when button is pushed. Light goes on, power is on.


Sounds like the motor is gone. Try opening the door and pushing the door swithch inside the dryer door cavity.This may take two people but while holding the door switch, push the start switch and turn the dryer drum at the same time.(in a clock direction) If the dryer starts it means the moter is shot.

Dryer drum will not turn.


Hello.

If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.

If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I'VE HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE. WHEN PUSHING THE START BUTTON AND GETTING A AAARGH SOUND THIS INDICATES A BAD MOTOR. YOU NEED TO RULE OUT SOMETHING STUCK IN BLOWER.

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Dyer was grinding, then won't run


Sounds to me like you motor has froze up. Is there any smell coming from the dryer? The fuse would not cause this. A fuse would make the dryer do nothing when you hit the start button.
