My Kenmore Dryer, Mdl #86681800 won't start when hot


The most likely reason it that the electric motor is failing; the thermal protector on the motor is resetting after the motor cools down. The buzzing is due to a locked rotor in the motor while it is overheated.

Another much less likely possibility is that there is excessive drag on the drum causing the motor to overheat because it is working too hard spinning the drum. Excess drag is due to worn rollers, etc.

Try rotating the drum in the CORRECT direction by hand and see if it seems really hard to rotate. You can try this on a friend or relatives machine to see how much drag is normal.

To determine which way is the correct rotation, just start the dryer, open the door and look fast! To test, just turn it in the same direction as it was rotating before it stopped.

Maytag dryer makes an electrical buzzing noise when start button


It sounds to me like the motor is not turning, but the heating element is coming on. with no air flowing over the element, it is getting too hot. Can you operate the start switch with the top tilted up so you can see if the motor is turning but the drum is not, and just where the buzzing is coming from. Also, I would try the dryer on manual setting and on air dry to see if any setting works. Good luck

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

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.
