Hello,

That sounds pretty typical of a motor that has tight bearing and shutting off due to excessive heat being created at the motor because of the tight bearings on the motor. What will usually happen whena motor is very tight is that it will run a few minutes (or cycles) and get too hot and shutoff until it cools down and will start then shutoff agian once too hot.Along with it not starting because of the friction of the tight bearing the motor will make a humming noise and may or may not start.

Make sure your cycle is properly selected with the timer and that the dial knob isn't broken. It will make that noise if you try to start it when the cycle is set to off. Otherwise, you might have something stuck in your blower wheel. Try spinning the drum by hand and if it doesn't move, there may be a restriction causing the motor to hum.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

The humming noise is more than likely your drive motor. Replace your drive motor.

Dryer does not start. if you push on the start button you can hear a small hum from the area of the timer, otherwise nothing. door switch seems to be working

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Dryer will not start


when you turn the select knob, you set up the internal cams of the timer. when you press to start or pull to start, you energize the timer motor (buzz) the timer opens the water solenoids. the diaphragm switch senses the water level and moves the timer to the next step. agitate starts for the timed cycle. when its finished the motor kicks in in opposite direction to drain and pump water out.
