Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn
DON'T FORGET TO RATE;

Drum does not rotate


Is it making noises, Humming Buzzing etc.?
You should hope it's just the Belt NOT The motor / pump assembly.
If the belt is broken you should be able to rotate the agitator manually, if not it could be the motor.

My Kenmore Dryer, Mdl #86681800 won't start when hot


The most likely reason it that the electric motor is failing; the thermal protector on the motor is resetting after the motor cools down. The buzzing is due to a locked rotor in the motor while it is overheated.

Another much less likely possibility is that there is excessive drag on the drum causing the motor to overheat because it is working too hard spinning the drum. Excess drag is due to worn rollers, etc.

Try rotating the drum in the CORRECT direction by hand and see if it seems really hard to rotate. You can try this on a friend or relatives machine to see how much drag is normal.

To determine which way is the correct rotation, just start the dryer, open the door and look fast! To test, just turn it in the same direction as it was rotating before it stopped.

Dryer makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on but it doesn't come on, just buzzes.


Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.
What is the model number?

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when i try to turn it on, but it won't turn on at all. What could the issue be?


The motors centrifugal switch may be stuck. Try having someone start it while pressing in the door switch while you rotate the drum with your hand by grabbing one of the drum vanes. I don't know which direction your drum rotates. Try both. This may start the drum turning on its own and resetting the switch.

Loud buzzing noise


seems the the motor is ****! avoid switching it more further to prevent its motor from burning!
motor could be stuck due to rust build-up.
or something might have jammed along the motor area or along the rotating part.

Re: Lavamat 72630, 6 yrs old Very loud noise from drum movement, has increased over last ten washes. When machine is stopped, on rotating drum we note it is catching on something. Nothing rattling, don't...


Hiya admin47..... to be a litle more certain diagnosing your problem, please can you do the following.

1. with the washer empty.. ie the drum... please rotate the drum by hand at any speed you can get... without moving the drum sideways/backwards. Listen for any peculiar noises.

2. Then move the drum backwards at the bottom of the door ( dont force).. then let the drum housing go.. swinging by its own movement, again listen for any strange noises.

3. Do the same pushing the drum from the inside to the outer casing..again dont force.. let go listening again...

Please post me the results

Regards Faggly
