Question about Dryers
When I turn the start button, it just hums.
IT COULD HAVE LIFT BUILD UP ON THE MOTOR PREVENTING THE CONTACTS FROM CONNECTING.

check the fuse's and or breaker's to make sure on of them is not blown or tripped, check the belt to make sure it's not broken and check the tensioner, check to see if the drum spin's with little or no friction, if there are no blown or tripped fuse's and belt and tensionet are good the motor may be burned out.

SOURCE: My dryer stopped working yesterday. When I press the button to start the dryer it hums, but it doesn't start turning. If I push the button 3-4 times in a row, it hums each time until about the 4th pre
Sounds like the motor is cutting out on its thermal fuse. The only cure is to change the motor.

Hi, Does the dryer only hum when you push the start button?
Might be a bad motor.
Does the motor hum but, the drum doesn't turn?
Please let me know and get me a model # so I can assist you further.

I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.
