Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer is plugged in and the power seems to be working fine...for example, the light is on when I open the door and the button for the light works when I push it on and off. However, when I push the start button for the dryer, it just makes a murmured humming sound, like a low hum. Nothing else happens and nothing else seems to function. Any suggestions?
