I have an Amana front load dryer. When I try to run it, i get a low hum noise for a few seconds, then nothing. The dryer won't run, the drum won't spin. Any advice?


When you get the hum, is the drum moving? It sounds like the motor is not turning. Can you spin the drum freely by hand? IF so, the belt may be broken. If not, you may have a bad motor. If you aren't handy, I'm afraid you're going to have to call appliance repair service, or think about getting a new or different dryer.

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.

We just purchased a new Samsung Dryer model #DV218AEB/XAA the lights will come on but when you attempt to start the dryer there is a hum, the dryer does not spin, then the hum goes away after a few...


Could be a couple things causing this problem. If you can turn the durm by hand without much resistance then the belt may be too loose. This could be because the spring on the tension pully came off or the belt streached. The humming you hear is the motor spinning. If you cannot turn the drum by hand then something could be stuck between the drum and the frame of the dryer.
I would also check that the dryer is wired correctly, because low voltage could be causing the motor to hum but not turn.
