When pushing the start button dryer hums but does not spin. when u release start button dryer shuts off


Sounds like a bad motor. Check to make sure the drum isn't stuck, if you can spin the drum put some tape on the door switch and press the start button while you spin the drum. If the drum continues to rotate, you have a bad motor.

Dryer is getting very noisy. Does this mean there is a problem ?


The most common reason for the dryer drum to stop spinning is if your drum belt has snapped or has been worn down completely. This is an easy fix and simply involves buying a replacement belt and feeding it through the pulleys and on the roller and then back around the middle of the drum.

The rollers could have worm out causing the drum to spin in a bumpy and noisy manner , these are the little circle shaped objects your dryer actually sites and can usually be replaced depending on how old your dryer is. The pulleys could also be broken causing problems.

The motor could have died after many years of use if the drum is not moving at all and if it is moving the motor bearing could be off causing to spin around very roughly and sometimes scratch against the sides of the dryer compartment.

Noises coming from the dryer when its plugged in and spinning could also be due to a huge amount of dust built up around the dryer drum. Sometimes cleaning out the inside of your dryer and returning the drum to the correct position can fix this problem.

Screeching noises are not a good sign and sometimes its a sign that you drum is slowly cutting into the sides of your dryer which could permanently put your dryer out of use if its continues.i think i will work out

My dryer won't turn. The motor runs when you push start but the drum doesn't turn. I can turn it by hand and it will run.

The dryer does not spin, the motor runs but the drum doesn't spin


The dryer either spins because of belts/ropes or because the motor directly contacts the dryer drum. I would tip the dryer so I could inspect the drum drive mechanism(s). Make sure you don't have a belt that broke or slipped or that a drive wheel locked up.

Drum will not spin. The belt is not broken but is hanging lose


If the motor is working...Shut off the power to the dryer, reach inside the drum and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn. Sometimes the motors get dead zones in them and this will help move it out of the dead zone

It could also be the drum rollers that need lubrication or replacement, if they are not rotating it would not allow the drum to spin.

I hope this helps
