I am having the same problem. Dried towels last night. This morning, I loaded it, turned it on, it did not lock the door or start drying (spinning) but the timer started counting down. I pressed Cancel twice, unplugged it for a few minutes then tried again. Problem still exists. Any suggestions?

When pushing the start button dryer hums but does not spin. when u release start button dryer shuts off


Sounds like a bad motor. Check to make sure the drum isn't stuck, if you can spin the drum put some tape on the door switch and press the start button while you spin the drum. If the drum continues to rotate, you have a bad motor.

My Frigidaire Affinity electric dryer will not start. Its only just over 2 years old. the timer counts down but the drum will not turn nor is there any heat. I've tried jumping the dryer but it still will...


Listen, when you push the start button to hear a low hum, if you do hear this it maybe that your belt is broken. This is an involved job but can be done if you are handy.

Dryer won't turn on believe it's the start switch,has power,the timer is working and the door latches


if the timer is working and counting down, you need to open the door and spin the drum, if it spins real easy , with no resestance you need to check your belt,, if the belt comes off or breaks it has a micro switch that shuts the motor down, but the timer and lights will still work

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find
