What is wrong with a Frigidaire front load dryer whose start button light comes on but drier just humms.


Most likely the belt has slipped off the drum. It might have also worn out. The process to repair it is a pain. You did not post the make and model but if there is a kick panel under the door you can remove that easily to check the belt. Unplug the machine and remove the screws that hold the panel. They are under the bottom edge. Take the panel off and get a vacuum cleaner and clean out all the lint. Use a light to see the belt and the motor. You can use your hand to turn the drum and see if the motor turns or you can check it by close inspection. If the belt is off the pulley you have to take the whole top of the dryer off to get to it. Check the back for screws and remove any that hold the top on. The top lifts off of the unit and it make take some serious pulling to get it loose. You can then see into and around the drum.

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

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 has power, belt is in place, when start is twisted, humms only. Drum can be moved by hand, but is stiff, not super loose.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

When i go to start my dryer model # aeq6700fso all it does is make a buzzing sound no heat and drum does not turn? i checked the belt is fine and motor spins freely by hand


If the motor is hummming or buzzzing it most likly the motor or a bad wire conection to the motor.


you can try to turn the drum by hand and retry to start the machine.. if this does work, you have a bad spot on the motor and if it does not and you can verify the noise is coming from the motor then the motor is most likley bad.

When Turned on, drum will not spin?


if the motor is running,your belt is the problem.if all you hear is a slight humming noise,you may have a bad motor,or something caught in blower. if the drum turns easily by hand,its probably the belt

If the drum is not turning and the hum is a nice quiet hum, then the belt on the drum has broken. The hum you hear is the motor turning without the belt.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Dryer Motor won't always start Model FSE747GES


Too much drag on the Drum. Try lubricating the rollers that the drum turns on. Check the belt tensioner pully...lubricate that as necessary. If Drum still turns very hard after this then take belt off of motor and try turning drum. If drum turns easily then replace motor.
