Then it ran a few times just fine, then did it again. This started a couple of weeks ago, like this:
My dryer is natural gas, if that matters.
Dryer not starting buzzing sound. It currently makes no sound at all (not even a click). Verify that an object didn't get caught beneath the dryer, which could make it uneven, and remove the object if one exists. If power is getting to the tumble dryer but all you can hear is a humming noise then the motor or drum could be physically jammed.

Kind of the noise that a locked up motor makes when trying to start. So, if your wed4815ew1 dryer does not start when the door is closed, not starting or won't turn on, the following info will help you identify the problem. I held it in and it smelled hot, and then wouldn't even buzz.
Prior to it not starting at all, it would make a buzzing like noise when the start button was depressed. Open the door and manually reach in and rotate the drum in the counter clockwise direction for a couple of complete revolutions and then shut the door and see if the dryer will start. I am working on a maytag dryer, when you push the start button there is a buzzing noise.
Open the dryer door and press the door switch. Candy grando tumble dryer problems may include making an electrical buzzing noise without the drum moving. Then one day it would not start, it just buzzed.
The buzz could be from the timer motor, when the push to start button is pressed. Door switch that clicking you hear when you shut your dryer’s door is the door. I spun the drum and nothing happened.
This can point to a problem with the drum assembly and will need a technician to fix it. We have a kenmore 70 series model 110.96573220 dryer that won't start. A more common explanation though is a faulty start capacitor.
I pushed the timer to start it, and it made a buzzing noise before it started. Time to replace the start switch. It makes electrical buzzing noise when you press the start button.
Turn off and unplug the dryer, and then use a flashlight to inspect the dryer closely. M0261131 the dryer makes a very loud buzzing sound at time. My dryer is just 2 years old.
(makes it seem like the motor huh?) the timer still ticks. The drum is harder to 'spin' by hand a little bit. The lint build up around the blower wheel ha.
The first place to start when a dryer won't turn and makes a humming noise is to check for foreign objects that may be blocking the drum from turning. Many tumble dryer motors use a capacitor start and if the capacitor goes faulty it may not produce the big kick of electricity to jump start the motor. I then found the buzzer located on a panel in front of the motor.
The instructions below from diyers like you make the repair simple and easy. I feel this is a scam on ge's part. If your dryer makes a buzzing or a humming noise and will not turn or start then here's an easy fix you can try.
Try cleaning the motor and see if this problem goes away. If nothing happens when you attempt to start your dryer, then you’ll need to check the continuity with a multimeter tester as described above. If when you do this the dryer starts and runs normal your problem will be in the motor.
Called ge and they virtually will not help with trouble shooting. If you have a restriction that is binding the dryer drum and keeping it from turning, it could cause the motor to. Without this switch’s signal, the drive motor will not know to start turning the drum.

I tried bypassing the fuses 1 at a time and then tried all of the thermostats 1 at a time and continued to hear the buzzing noise. When it starts to buzz try turning the drum by hand. It could also be coming from the dryer motor.
I have a maytag dryer model number mde9606ayw. I think it does this when it heats up. Then have someone press the start button.
