Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My dryer has had a problem of periodically humming when the start button is pressed. Yesterday, the dryer quit working all together. The only thing it will do is "hum" when the start button is pressed. The drum will not turn and it seems nothing else is moving. I'm thinking it has something to do with the motor but I don't know. Please help...
This sounds like the motor is siezed or burned out. I wish I knew how much a motor is, but the Neptune is a good dryer so it would probably be worth it to get a new motor if indeed that's the problem.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
