Dryer motor hums but doesn't spin


Sounds like the motor has gone bad.

I have an Amana front load dryer. When I try to run it, i get a low hum noise for a few seconds, then nothing. The dryer won't run, the drum won't spin. Any advice?


When you get the hum, is the drum moving? It sounds like the motor is not turning. Can you spin the drum freely by hand? IF so, the belt may be broken. If not, you may have a bad motor. If you aren't handy, I'm afraid you're going to have to call appliance repair service, or think about getting a new or different dryer.

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

When Turned on, drum will not spin?


if the motor is running,your belt is the problem.if all you hear is a slight humming noise,you may have a bad motor,or something caught in blower. if the drum turns easily by hand,its probably the belt

We just purchased a new Samsung Dryer model #DV218AEB/XAA the lights will come on but when you attempt to start the dryer there is a hum, the dryer does not spin, then the hum goes away after a few...


Could be a couple things causing this problem. If you can turn the durm by hand without much resistance then the belt may be too loose. This could be because the spring on the tension pully came off or the belt streached. The humming you hear is the motor spinning. If you cannot turn the drum by hand then something could be stuck between the drum and the frame of the dryer.
I would also check that the dryer is wired correctly, because low voltage could be causing the motor to hum but not turn.

DRUM WILL NOT SPIN, BELT IS OK


have you try to rotate the drum when belt is attached or installed, unplug your machine and try to spin it manualy at the back opening where you can access the mechanical part

try to use the belt when turning it counter-clockwise see if it will turn the drum, if not then the fproblem is the bearing

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)
