Dryer makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on but it doesn't come on, just buzzes.


Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.
What is the model number?

Drum will not turn and there is no heat.


This dryer has a circuit board that controls virtually everything. If it makes a buzzing noise when you press the power button to turn on the control panel, it's probably not going to be an easy fix. When you hire a professional, you avoid buying expensive parts that you might not need, such as a control board. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you press the start button, it's possible that it could be a motor or belt problem. But again, I'd recommend a service call for this one.

Makes buzzing noise when pressing the start button but doesn't always start


With the dryer off, try to turn the drum by hand 1/4-1/2 turn, then turn the dryer back on and push the start butteer and see if this helps.
Sometimes motors get a dead zone in them and this will help move it from the dead zone.
If this does not help then your problem could be a bad motor, broken belt, faulty start switch or faulty timer switch.
Hope this helps
