Hi, the switch is probably faulty if you have it set not to buzz and it still does. There is a switch behind the knob that controls whether the buzzer is on or off, and the contacts in the switch can get warped over time.

You can either try to repair the switch yourself, or replace it. To repair it, you would remove the upper rear access panel (after unplugging the dryer, of course) and then open the switch assembly and adjust the copper contacts until they make proper contact with the terminals.

My Kenmore Elite dryer has power & you can select a cycle, but pressing the start button does nothing. The timer flashes and makes a buzzing sound.


Check door switch plunger, it protrudes into the switch to make contact and may be broken, if OK, check for broken door switch. Order parts from repairclinic.com

Kenmore gas dryer made a loud buzzing sound and didn't start. I smelled burnt rubber smell. Dryer is totally unresponsive now. Breaker is ok, power is on.


Sounds like the belt has burned and broken. There is a switch on the tensioner that will not let the motor run if the belt breaks.
