My Frigidaire fex831fs4 washer motor hums but wont start.i took belt off.still hums no start even when timer is not set to run.if I close lid motor hums then kicks out then it trys again.thanks 4 help


I appreciate your post, Mike!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire washer motor will hum and not start. In order to test each component you would need to have the proper electrical equipment. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs. They will have the necessary equipment needed to complete your repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Husky air compressor motor hums won't start


In a safe manor, when the motor is humming, give one of the pulleys a push to help get the motor started. If the motor runs OK with the help push, the start capacitor is bad. If not the next thing to check is the tank check valve.

Dryer motor hums but does not turn when start button is pushed


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Hum when you hit start button rr lexus@yahoo.com


If you are pressing the start button and getting only humming, that is a motor. What is happening, the motor is trying to start, but the motor has been damaged in some way, so it can't start. All you get is the motor humming. If you post a model number, I can tell you the part number of the motor and an average price :) Having a motor changed by a local service man should generally cost around $200.

When statrting the dryer it doesn't start but hums


Sounds like a bad motor to me. If you hold down the start button and hums while its pressed its the motor. Depending on how old it is should determine your decision of whether or not to have it fixed. Hope this helps...

My blower motor will not start. it hums and gets very hot. i can spin the wheel with no resistance gmp075-4


Assuming you are spinning it when the motor is humming, if the motor runs after spinning it it could be the run capacitor (replace) or open/broken start winding in motor(need new motor). Humming should indicate the motor is getting proper voltage. If motor does not try to run by spinning then open run winding in motor (replace motor).

Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums


Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.
