Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer
My dreyer only hums like its trying to come on, but it doesn't. I've unplugged it, plugged it back in, doing whatever I can do to reset it. It did this once before some time ago.
This is an obvious sign of a motor problem if the humming noise is
coming from the motor itself. Otherwise, if the humming noise is coming
from the timer, then most likely you have a blown thermal fuse which is usually wired in series with the motor circuit. Failure of the thermal fuse results in the dryer not running because it terminates power to the motor.
Please indicate the exact model number of the dryer for a more specific and accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.
