The drum in the dryer has most likely has a belt around it that makes it turn. This belt could have broken and you hear the motor running but the drum can't turn. For more info look it up on you tube. (dryer belt replacement)

Frigidaire dryer hums when button is pushed in but won't start


ok can u turn the tumbler freely,
if no well there is something stuck in you blower like a sock or something
if the tumbler turns freely
keep the door open and hold the door switch
try pushing the start button
and tuning the tumbler, yes all three at the same time lol you may need a hand
try tuning the tumbler when you hear a hum
if it takes off bad news your start winding on the motor is bad or the capacitor depending on your model
if it does not turn, but the hum continues longer than 1-2 minutes it could be just a belt

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

Tumbler wont turn heater and everything still works but tumbler needs a push to start rotateing then i have to quickly shut the door while the tumbler is still going in order to work please help with any...


Sounds like the start windings or circuit is not engaging. When you press the start button, you engage the start and run windings of the motor. Once the motor starts running, the start windings drop out and the run windings keep it going. Your manual pushing is taking the place of the start process. I'd look at either replacing the motor or check out the start circuit. If the unit is electric, you may want to go price shopping as a new unit may be smarter than doing a repair. At least you'd know what's out there.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

Wont start


try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
