Where is the starting capacitor for a amana gas dryer

Dryer motors do not require start capacitors. Their is multiple windings in the motor and a centrifugal switch. When the start button is pushed all of them windings are on and when the motor gets up to speed start winding drops out.

I have and Amana electric dryer when I push the start button it buzzes and does not start

Wild guess the dryer is overloaded, Or too hot and needs to cool down. There are temp sensors that will prevent starting when too hot. You may have drive belt or fan problems exhaust pipe clog.

I have an amana dryer that i bought used. The start button buzz's when pushed, but the dryer does not start. I haven't gotten into it just yet, but i will be able to test with a multi meter, whats first to...

try to turn the drum while you push the start button and hold the door switch in. it might start running that way.,
if it does start running, then you have a sticking motor switch and you will have to replace the entire motor.
it happens alot and try turning it first then if it happens again you might want to replace the dryer because of the cost of a new motor.

When I push the timer button to start the dryer it just buzzes.

verify connections on motor. sounds like the start relay has gone out on the motor. if it was your push to start button it wouldn't make any noise.

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed

It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.

Tiff...there is a switch which indicates that the door is open. Most units require that you push the start button on the timer panel to start/restart. You must have time set on the timer to direct the dryer to work.

Dryer will only run if I hold in the start button

nones, first check the harness going to the motor, make sure it is seated all the way. If it still stops after that you probably have a bad push to start switch..part number back.
