Sounds like either the drum belt is either loose or is broken, otherwise the motor may need replacing.

Dryer drum doesn't spin


If the motor runs and the drum doesn't turn then most likely the belt is broken.

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.

Hello,
Those symptons (humming/buzzing ¬ starting) are 99 out of a 100 times a sign of a motor that has locked up.

When you push the button to start the dryer, all it does is buzz and nothing happens


next time send the model number and brand name,all dryers are not the same!it sounds like a bad motor.open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and with the other spin the drum,while you're spinning the drum have someone push the start button,if the motor starts you'll know the motor is bad but it might run for a while before it does this again or it will do it every time but either way the motor should be changed,also on some dryers if the belt broke it will buzz like when the dryer is down but if yours is more like a humming sound like power is going to the motor but it won't run then it's the motor.

My druer is heating but the drum wont spin


either the motor is defective or the drum belt is broken or off the pulleys, if you can't hear the motor start and run w/o belt attached and it just buzzes the motor start cap could be bad

Fisher and Paykel Dryer will not spin, motor buzzing


take top off. set it going and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and keeps going then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part

Dryer motor


if the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.
