Why does my GE 7 Cycle Dryer makes noise when I turn the start button, but does not run the dryer


The start button just engages it to run. See if the wires are still on it. Turn off your breaker, then back on. If still not working, then replace starter switch.

Dryer makes noise and will not start.I hold door switch and turn drum manualy, dryer starts working


Usually a bad start winding in the motor. Very rarely is it a wiring problem to the motor, especially when it is making noise. This means you have to replace the motor, after examining the wiring going to the motor. Fairly expensive repair. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Just buzzes


 the only thing you can do to possibly solve this problem without a professional is to:
  • tape down the door switch with strong tape, or have someone else hold it down.
  • physically turn the tub inside the dryer while pushing the start switch.
  • this will hopefully loosen whatever has the motor stuck.
if this does not work then the motor in the dryer might be bad or going bad, especially if a burning smell is present when you hear the humming sound.

Kenmore electric dryer when i turn it on all I hear is a humming noise


 hold down the door switch with tape and try to start it while turning the drum inside. if the motor doesn't start then you might need a new motor; expensive.
if the humming noise is actually the motor running and the tub is not turning then it is the belt; inexpensive.
