Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer
Bill. You may very well have a bad motor, or possibly a blown thermal fuse. You will want to try to determine where the hum sound is coming from to figure out where your problem is.
If you have the drum and everything out and you try to start it and hear the hum coming from the motor, try turning the motor shaft by hand to see if it may have been bound up by something (like a pencil or sock falling down the lint chute).
If the hum is coming from the timer area only, then I would be checking the thermal fuses in the back of the dryer located on the blower outlet, and on the heater housing. The one on the blower outlet should be a skinny white one with two wires, the one on the heater is on the top of the heater element and also has two wires going to it.
You can check the thermal fuses easily by bypassing them and then checking to see if the dryer starts. DO NOT leave them bypassed as they are safety items to prevent the dryer from catching fire.
Good luck with this!!
