Either the belt is broken or off. If this is a new dryer I would contact the people you bought it from as if you open it up to look/fix it they may say you broke it. If they will not fix it here is a website that will assist you, Good Luck Tim:

My dryer won't start. When i activate the start switch I hear a hum like the motor is bound up.. I opened the top and the drum is not stuck and the belt seems in good shape. The unit is about 4 years...


check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

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 wont start, makes a humming noise. I have to manualy turn the drum then the dryer will start


Check the belt to see if it is worn or loose. If it has a capacitor start motor, the capacitor or motor could be going bad also. If the motor is spinning but the belt is not turning then you have a loose belt.

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.

Dryer wont tumble


i think the belt is slipping bad on your dryer,,
what puzzels me is you say you can here the motor hum? is it a hum? or a buzz?? if its a buzz then its more likley to be the motor as its past its best and it needs if it needs a new motor as well, it would work out cheeper to buy a new tumble dryer

I have a performa dryer and when you push the start button it just hums but won't stay on.


there is a good chance you have something stuck in the blower motor, you can take a peek down the lint trap with a flashlight, you can also confirm this simply by trying to trun the dryer drum,
try to spin it by hand, if it wont trun, or has a great deal odf resistance then you have a sock stuck
if it does turn easily, then hold the door switch
and try to turn the drum as you hear the hum
if this starts the dryer and all is good, till you let go of the door switch,, well then it sounds like you have a motor issue, a start winding is bad, to be more specific.
