There may be another piece of clothing down in the blower wheel remove the lid then take off the control panel to remove the front panel and look in the blower wheel housing. you may need to also clean the motor from any lint build up this can cause starting issues.

Dryer heats, and runs empty. Once even a small clothing item is added, when the start button is hit, there is a buzzing noise and it will not start. It then will also not run empty for a time. What could...


hum might check ur moister sensor? and also u may have bad motor windings try this If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Drum will turn empty but will not turn with heavy wet clothes in dryer. Is it a bad motor?


no, most likely, especially if it sounds right, it is a bad belt. The reason why i say if it sounds right is because the machine don't know the difference. if it was the motor you would hear a really loud hum before it stopped and then maybe it would start back up and hum some more. if your clothes are really heavy like dripping on your feet heavy. then you have a problem with your washer. Probably a transmission.

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Dryer Starts... Then Stops!...


Sounds as if you have a bad motor. That humming is a big give away. Unless its less than 3 years. I would replace it.

Maytag electric dryer when i set dial to desired setting i here a humming sound prior to pushing start button it has never done this before also the clothes is VERY hot when i take it out model ...


it sounds like a shorted heater element, this would also cause the heat to stay on at 110 volts which would make the clothes very hot since the element doesn't completely shut down. if it is a loud hum it could be a stuck motor switch but in this case the dryer usually won't start.

My washer does not wash the clothes or go through the spin cycle.


It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it. In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed. Good luck !!
