I have i kitchen aid gas dryer,when i press the start button it makes noise for about 3-4 second s then it stops and it won't start


That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced.
Now if you press the start button and the machine starts to hum and continues to hum its possible that something has gotten caught in the blower wheel and binding the motor up. Depending on the make and model the location and access to it vaaries.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Kenmore dryer model 86950100, when I push the start button it just hums and will not start.First time it did it I waited 1/2 hour then it ran fine for couple days and now it started again, just hums. I...


the humming is coming from the motor,if you can spin the drum by hand and it moves freely you need to replace the motor,if it's hard to move you need to take the dryer apart to see why it's hanging up,the overload resets on the motor that's why after a while you'll hear the hum again,if you hold the button to long you'll pop the overload

Dryer won't start all the time. can hand start unit.


hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like ur motor is going out. Had this happen to my last dryer. If this is the case it will eventually just stop. Try running it without any laundry in it. if this works, then load it and see if it still works. (poor little motor has to work a bit harder with a full load) good luck.

Dryer won't start


If you are getting s slight HUM when you press the start button,your motor is experiencing some problems. If you do not hear a hum, and after letting the dryer cool down for several hours, it suddenly works again, your motor has an internal short and is shutting itself down via the internal overload. If there is no hum of any kind, even after letting it cool off for a long time, then either there has been a failure of a part in the line such as the door interlock switch, the timer contact or there is a thermal overload in the back of the dryer, down by the blower, it is white in color and it has probably opened up.
