dryer won't run, but hot air blow and humming when turned on
Belt is off, idler is off or broken. Replace the belt and idler. Make sure it is installed correctly with tension on the belt. It will take care of your problem
When I try and start my ge dbb3300eaoww dryer it buzzes as if it wants
to start if I spin it with my hand it will work. I put a new belt on it
and it does the same thing.
Motor start switch is bad. This is typically replaceable with out replacing the motor.
Will take care of the problem.
My drum will sometimes stop turning in the middle of a cycle, and the
motor just hums. I pause the dryer, open the door, rotate the drum,

Replace the belt. It has stretched to the point it no longer can carry the load. Should consider replacing the idler at the same time. This will take care of the problem.
