Dryer Won't Start

My Frigidaire Gas Dryer quit.  When the start switch is turned a sound like a jammed buzz comes from the motor and then a thunk from the circuit board.  I would assume the motor is the problem but when the timer is turned to say 30 minutes I believe it used to turn on its own whether the dryer was on or not ( am I right?).  Now it dosn't turn at all.  I have pulled the motor but do not know how to test it.  There are 2 circuits - Start - red and black wires and Run - tan and yellow/brown.  I could hook it to 110v but I'm not sure which is the neutral and which of the colors to hook up for it to run.....   and then am I right about the timer?                                              Perplexed

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn

not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

When we press the button to start the dryer, we hear the buzzing but the dryer does not move.

assume the buzzing quit when you release the start button. Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

My frigidaire dryer model NMER336FSO just out of the blue quit working. When I hit the start button i can hear a loan buzz, but it wont turn on.

It sounds like your Frigidaire may have one or more problems. If your push to start switch is defective then it will have to be replaced. You can test the switch itself by FIRST disconnecting power. Then taking the switch out and setting a voltmeter to test for continuity, then pushing the start button to see if there is on and off contact being made. Part number for the start switch is 131469000. If this is okay and you are hearing a buzz or low grumble noise coming from the motor area. this could indicate a bad motor winding and would probably have to be replaced. part number for the motor is 131560100. Sometimes however the motor can become seized or dirty connections to the motor can occur due to debris or dust bunnies. so make sure the dryer is CLEAN. If you give the drum a turn yourself manually, while trying to start the dryer this can sometimes give the motor the kick it needs. however this is only a quick fix, and not permanent. You have a well built simple dryer, and there isn't a whole lot that can go wrong with it. Hope this helps
