Drum not turning


unfortunately your motor is locked up. Try this, with the door open depress the door switch and have some one push the start button while you turn the drum by hand if it starts then you'll know the start winding on the motor is failing

MY NEPTUNE WASHER IS MAKING NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE WHAT PART DO NEED TO REPLACE? MODEL # MAH4000AWW


If the noise starts before the drum starts to turn it might be the pump is obstructed. If it starts soon as the drum starts to turn then might be the drum bearing. If it is a knocking vibrating sound open the door and grasp inner drum try moving up and down and side to side . If there is any movement aside from the whole mechanism then the spider that holds the shaft to the drum is broken . Need a tech

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

Dryer does not start. Drum does not turn by hand. Only makes a sound when switch is turned on.


If it is a sound like a loud hum, the motor is either fried or something is jammed preventing the drum from turning. It could be something like a sock. You just have to open things up and look around carefully, especially around the outside of the drum.

If the noise is a more normal one but the drum is not turning, check that the belt is around the drum and not broken. Some drums are just fairly hard to turn by hand, partcularly if the belt is still around the drum.

When turning the knob to start dryer, buzzing sounds but drum doesn't start to turn unless you gently push atart the inside drum


The problem is either a faulty start winding in the motor, or the circuit which energizes the start winding is failing.

A dryer motor has two windings: start & run. The start winding gets it going and a centrifugal switch disconnects the start winding when the motor gets up to speed.

Check the dryer start switch -- then the motor connections and the centrifugal switch inside the motor.

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.
