SOURCE: Push start and motor hums, but nothing else works.

Hey, either the belt is broke or something has happened to the tensioner pulley so remove front or rear panel & visually inspect & if belt is broken look & see if part # is still visible on belt surface & order a new belt.

My Frigidaire fex831fs4 washer motor hums but wont start.i took belt off.still hums no start even when timer is not set to run.if I close lid motor hums then kicks out then it trys again.thanks 4 help


I appreciate your post, Mike!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire washer motor will hum and not start. In order to test each component you would need to have the proper electrical equipment. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs. They will have the necessary equipment needed to complete your repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Dryer motor hums but does not turn when start button is pushed


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Dryer won't start. Hums


This is usually caused by a motor that has gone bad. The hum is caused because the motor windings have gone bad inside the motor and its cheaper to buy a new motor and install it yourself if your capable. Its pretty straight forward once you see it. Be sure to disconnect any power supply before working with electrical. You will need the model number and sometimes serial or date of mfg. Sears and other dealers are good about finding your part. Be warned, the cost of a new dryer might not be far off from the price of a new motor. Hope this helps.

Neptune dryer model 4000, <10 y.o., hums, but won't start.


I wouldn't know about the warranty, but the dryer motor may need only a start relay, which is usually attached to the motor. Usually, this is a centrifugal device. By that I mean the contacts on the relay are normally closed to give the motor extra starting capacity when you first turn it on. The contacts open after the motor get up to full speed.
