Maytag dryer makes an electrical buzzing noise when start button


It sounds to me like the motor is not turning, but the heating element is coming on. with no air flowing over the element, it is getting too hot. Can you operate the start switch with the top tilted up so you can see if the motor is turning but the drum is not, and just where the buzzing is coming from. Also, I would try the dryer on manual setting and on air dry to see if any setting works. Good luck

Kenmore gas dryer made a loud buzzing sound and didn't start. I smelled burnt rubber smell. Dryer is totally unresponsive now. Breaker is ok, power is on.


Sounds like the belt has burned and broken. There is a switch on the tensioner that will not let the motor run if the belt breaks.

KENMORE DRYER WILL NOT START


It sounds like the motor has burned up or is burning up is why you are getting that smell. There could at the same time be a wire that has come loose or burned off that is causing it not to come on.
