Unfortunately the noise is your motor,try spinning the drum by hand,if it spins it's the motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt could be hung up on something that's not letting the motor turn,also try spinning the drum and hold the door switch in and have someone else hold the start button in to see if it starts,sometime there's a flat spot on the motor and you can get it to start this way but if it happens again you have to change out the motor or get a new dryer,good luck let me know what you find and if you need more help let me know

I have a Maytag Electric Dryer #sde2606ayw, when i push the button it makes humming noise but wont start, i can turn the drum by hand so i dont think the engine is frozen. Could this be a belt problem?


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.

HUM NOISE OCCURES WHEN TURNING KNOB TO LEFT BEFORE PUSHING KNOB TO START- STOPS WHEN POINTING TO OFF POSITION - MODEL GYC4000AWW . DRUM DOES NOT TURN


it sounds like you have a bad motor and door switch. the unit should not run unless you push a start button. the humming noise is the motor. either something is blocking it or your motor is bad,

Dryer won't start but makes a humming / buzzing noise when you push the start button


If the humming noise is coming from the motor, (take the back panel off) remove the power plug and try to turn the motor by hand. If it seems free, look for a 'starter' capacitor on the motor which may be bad.

Maytag dryer mod #mde600ayw only makes a humming noise when start switch pushed will not turn.


a hum with a burning smell means the motor winding has failed.
you can try this: open the door and hold in the door switch, have another person hold the start button. You manually roate the drum by grabbing a fin and moveit while the unit is humming.IF the dryer starts, you need a motor.
Good Luck!

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Humming noise, runs and stops thru out drying process.


You have a motor that has a thermal overload built into it. This is for the dryer's protection. My best guess is to replace the motor. But before you do all that, make sure the wiring is good from the receptacle to the controls in the back of the dryer. It could not have a good connection thus causing this noise.

Kenmore dryer hums but will not start


If it just hums the motor is probably on it's way out. If it makes a growling noise, it's the motor.
