Dryer won't run

When we turn the timer dial to a setting and press it in to start, we can hear a humming sound like the dryer is ready to start, but nothing happens.

Its time to call the repairman. If its the motor humming its either bad or the dryer is froze up and unable to turn causing the motor to hum. Eventually it will trip the breaker.

I have a majic chef CYE3004AYW dryer. When I turn it on nothing happens but the dial still moves like the timer is working.


Do you hear any noise like humming? Maybe the drum belt broke, might be a lower panel held on with two screws near the bottom, remove to look with a flashlight to see if belt is attached to motor. If in tact unplug the dryer and check heating element for burnt leads.

When I press the start button, it hums but won't turn on, I hear clicking behind the cycle setting dial?


f 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.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

First and foremost, could be a faulty motor- faulty start capacitor, Faulty start relay.

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.

My dryer doens't start up


Depends on if you can hear any noise when you hit the start button or turn the knob. If there is a hum or some sound then could be belt or motor problems. If there is no sound dead, then you are checking the right area, there are kill switches in different places on dryers. one is like you checked the door switch, and another may be in back when you open the cover to check. Maybe fallen out of place. These sw. are for your safety and sometimes they malfunction. Hope this help!
