Drum wont turn just humms


Open the door and check of the Tub spins freely, if so then you have a bad motor and if it does not you could have an object stuck in the blower wheel which is attached to the motor and prevents it from spinning

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

When I turn knob to on, dryer just humms and i smell a burning smell. what could be the problem?


Hello
Obviously from what you describe, the drum is not turning.Most likely the drum belt is burning against motor pulley or idler pulley( most likely broken). If it were burning electric smell that would indicate motor under duress.If the dryer is full ,empty it and try again. You could have overloaded.If same result you'll have to open her up and check belt ,pulley and motor.

All fixable
Good luck

Feedback greatly appreciated1

When i go to start my dryer model # aeq6700fso all it does is make a buzzing sound no heat and drum does not turn? i checked the belt is fine and motor spins freely by hand


If the motor is hummming or buzzzing it most likly the motor or a bad wire conection to the motor.


you can try to turn the drum by hand and retry to start the machine.. if this does work, you have a bad spot on the motor and if it does not and you can verify the noise is coming from the motor then the motor is most likley bad.

If the drum is not turning and the hum is a nice quiet hum, then the belt on the drum has broken. The hum you hear is the motor turning without the belt.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.
