Usually a motor problem or a switch on the motor. The switch is not usually available seperately. Putting a new motor in is not always worth it as it can cost as much as $175

Hi, what you describe indeed sounds very bad, and should be looked into asap, to do this yourself you will need a service and repair manual, accordingly i have provided a link above for you to obtain one.
You will need to be very careful, as with any electrical fault, the service manual has troubleshooting steps for you to follow so you can isolate and repair your problem.
Buzzing noises usually have to do with the motor, or gears belt etc.

When pushing dryer start button, a slight buzz is


the noise is coming from the motor,if you can spin the drum by hand and it moves freely you have a bad motor and need to change it out,next time send model number and the brand name of dryer,if it doesn't spin,the belt could be jammed up or something stuck in the blower wheel,let me know how you make out

I switch the dryer on the light comes on as normal


HI. the filter is fine. Anytime you can hear a buzzing, That is behind the timer module, this will indicate that there is a serious issue concerning the timer mechanism. This device is damaged. The actual timer motor is failing. This will not allow for proper advancement of the cycle selected, in this case. The entire timer control device will need to replaced asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Dryer turns on runs awhile shuts off push knob again & buzz noise at motor push again & no noise or no dryer on , wait couple hrs. push knob, cycle starts over same result


the motor is defective starts runs overheats and kicks out on safety when it cool u can try again
i would check for something restricting the movement of the drumm as well a bad berring on rollers or broken or worn glides something in the blower area could give thge same results
try to open the door see if u can turn the drum freely
if u cant ( a compleate tear down is required to check for obstructions or worn parts if none found the motor ir the problem this should be done unplugged and buy a qualified repair man

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Hot Point Dryer does not come on but you can hear the noise by the start knob like a low buzz


Feel the outer cover at rear of the dryer at the bottom,if it starts to feel warm then the heater is working, the buzzing noise could be the motor trying to start, or noise from the relay, if the heater does not come on then could be timer faulty or faulty start relay. It is a a process of elmination.
