No thats wrong even if you can start it up by hand the motor can still be bad period. if there is no response and all relays test good behind the control panel cover then it is indeed ur motor. cha ching if u call a repair person.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

Drum not turning, hear humming noise


the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...


Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

When start button is pushed, hums but does not run. Drum does not turn. Belt is okay


It sounds like it is the motor or a stuck/obstructed blower wheel. You can start by opening the door, push the door switch in, hit the start button & see if you can turn the drum clockwise by hand. This might get it going. if the drum does not move by hand then the problem is probably within the blower. post your findings for a follow up

When you press the start button the dryer hums and doesnt turn


first thing you need to do is open the door and try to rotate drum by hand it it is not turn by hand that mean there is some thing stack in your blower fan. if you can turn the drum by hand you need two people to check this problem..one open the door there is one push button, push that button and hold now second person need to push the start button when you heard hums sound the turn the drum by hand again if your dryer stat spin that mean you have bad motor. (forgive me for my english)
