When hitting start button, it sometimes buzzes, but fails to start. Can sometimes wait for a little while and try again, and it starts. When it buzzes, it will only buzz for a few seconds and then nothing.


it is either the door switch or start switch, this website will show you how to test both, Good Luck Tim:

Dryer won't start.. has power sounds like something binding. long buzzing sound when starter depressed. try once or twice and then nothing for a while. come back try again ..long buzzing sound again


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

You did not include a make and model number for your dryer so... this is a GENERIC response. With a make and model number we can better help you.

The long buzzing your hearing is the motor winding trying to start the motor. After 30 - 45 seconds if the motor does not start the thermal overload will cycle and prevent further attempts for around 5 - 6 minutes until the motor winding cools down.

Causes of a dryer motor not starting:
1. Binding.
a. Broken dryer fan blade lodged inside the blower housing
b. Motor start switch failure
c. Motor bearing failure

2. Dryer drum bearing / roller problems
a. The drum can be bound up and dragging on internal components of the dryer
b. The Idler pulley bearing may have failed and it is now a brake.
c. Front or rear drum seals failed / pinched against rear or front of the chassis
d. Drum roller bearing failure and is now a brake.

Reach inside the drum and see if you can turn the drum. If you can not turn it with a little effort, you need to find out where the binding is inside your dryer.

This is the best I can do for the moment without a model number. With a Make and Model number I can provide parts listings and item numbers of where to check.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.


Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

Dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start switch.


Sounds like a bad motor, The buzzing noise is probably the motor humming then nothing because the thermal over load switch inside the motor opened. Timer will still be energized. Good Luck

Sounds like you have a motor going out. If you take it back apart see how hard the motor is to turn by hand. Also look for lint in the motor by the start switch.

Gas Dryer


YOU SHOULD CALL YOUR UTILITY COMPANY TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. IF YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD OLFACTORY SENSE YOU MAY BE PICKING UP A SMALL RESIDUAL THAT IS NOT IGNITED IF THE IGNITER IS SLIGHTLY MALFUNCTIONING.
