If this machine is older then 8 years, It may have died. Also, If the machine was recently over-filled with too many clothes, and if it is over-filled on a regular basis, it can destroy the machine's ability to turn the drum. We had a similar problem with an old machine...someone over filled it and the drum died.

If the dryer inside light comes on can the thermal fuse ok


No relations at all......

Light comes on means there is power and your door is open.

Thermal fuse failure means there is no heat. No current going through your heating circuit. Most models and brands will still turn the drum without heat. But there are some models thermal fuse will completely shut the power to heating circuit and drum motor. Like KENMORE certain dryers made by Whirlpool corporation

Dryer won't start.. has power sounds like something binding. long buzzing sound when starter depressed. try once or twice and then nothing for a while. come back try again ..long buzzing sound again


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

You did not include a make and model number for your dryer so... this is a GENERIC response. With a make and model number we can better help you.

The long buzzing your hearing is the motor winding trying to start the motor. After 30 - 45 seconds if the motor does not start the thermal overload will cycle and prevent further attempts for around 5 - 6 minutes until the motor winding cools down.

Causes of a dryer motor not starting:
1. Binding.
a. Broken dryer fan blade lodged inside the blower housing
b. Motor start switch failure
c. Motor bearing failure

2. Dryer drum bearing / roller problems
a. The drum can be bound up and dragging on internal components of the dryer
b. The Idler pulley bearing may have failed and it is now a brake.
c. Front or rear drum seals failed / pinched against rear or front of the chassis
d. Drum roller bearing failure and is now a brake.

Reach inside the drum and see if you can turn the drum. If you can not turn it with a little effort, you need to find out where the binding is inside your dryer.

This is the best I can do for the moment without a model number. With a Make and Model number I can provide parts listings and item numbers of where to check.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Buzzing sound when aux heat comes on


Sounds like it could be a effiency function to warn you that the heat elements are on. Check your thermostat manual and see if you can turn this feature off. If this is not a feature then the thermostat may be wired wrong or something in the circuit may be trying to short out.

Drum not turning-very loud sound coming frm dryer when turned on


There could be multiple problems with you whirlpool dyer depending on the type of noise you are hearing. If the noise is a low grumble or loud buzzing sound this could indicate a bad motor. Which could explain you not hearing the drum turning. If however you hear a grating or grinding type noise but the drum is turning, this could indicate that something is rubbing or has become jammed inside the blower fan that circulates the air. if this is the case it too may have to be replaced. Also the drum can sometime come off the drum support rollers at the back of the dryer, but this is very uncommon, and only happens if they are very worn or broken. This can easily be diagnosed by a technician and if the motor is fine, will cost little to repair.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Loud buzzing noise with Whirpool microwave oven when it comes on. All lights, heating and fan seems to work but not sure why loud buzzing. What is the problem?


The loud buzzing you hear is the sound of the magnatron tube.That is what emits the microwave radiation and buzzing should be normal. The mag tube may be nearing its end at witch time you will hear no buzzing and hence no heating of foods. Replacement can be costly depending on the model so most people just opt for a new one. Hope this helps

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

Buzzing when surface lights turned on


Right. It sounds like either a bad connection on the control panel, or maybe a low or intermittent supply at the outlet.

I would try plugging a lamp into the outlet and see if it works well. That gives you a good low-current test. For a good high-current test, try a toaster or hair dryer.

You might also check the fuse and holder. It's pretty common for these fuses to get loose on the end caps and sometimes the holders may be loose.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

It is turns out to be the controller, we repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help. And please mention your model number when you write.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
