Amana Dryer LEA30AW


usually the humming sound is coming from the motor,try this,open the door,turn the drum with one hand and hold the door switch in with your other hand and have someone else push the start button at the same time,this might help the motor turn on but if it does you need a new motor,if you can't turn the drum you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or something jammed in the motor like a broken belt but like i said a humming sound is usually the motor.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

Dryer won't start but makes a humming / buzzing noise when you push the start button


If the humming noise is coming from the motor, (take the back panel off) remove the power plug and try to turn the motor by hand. If it seems free, look for a 'starter' capacitor on the motor which may be bad.

Maytag dryer mod #mde600ayw only makes a humming noise when start switch pushed will not turn.


a hum with a burning smell means the motor winding has failed.
you can try this: open the door and hold in the door switch, have another person hold the start button. You manually roate the drum by grabbing a fin and moveit while the unit is humming.IF the dryer starts, you need a motor.
Good Luck!

When you push start button, it makes noise but won't start.


This is a A.C. hum that you are hearing. this is a warning sign. You are experiencing motor failure. the actual windings inside of the motor are losing their potential to hold an even current due to breakage. the shutdown is a safety feature built in the control panel to prevent electrical spark/fire.

Kenmore dryer hums but will not start


If it just hums the motor is probably on it's way out. If it makes a growling noise, it's the motor.
