Question and Answers

Q:

dryer humming

A:

Dryer problems for the New Year is not something you were looking for. I located a similar question from a previous expert post that has some possible causes, but the model number is different. It may help while you wait for the expert. If you decide you prefer to have an expert diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler. I attached the links below. Hope this helps!

One thing to check if you have a meter and are comfortable using it is the voltage under a load while the dryer tries to start. Use caution doing this.

Check the voltage where the dryer is plugged on while someone pushes the start button. If the voltage drops then that might be the problem and not the motor.

If the voltage is okay then the motor is most likely at fault.

Give me a reply with what you find and we'll try to assist you further. If you have no meter then we�ll try and find another way to check this problem.

I tore into this monster and the it has some type of linkage that actually slides on the motor that slides up and down the shaft that controls the start/run of the motor. It seems to be hanging up in the run at times and then will not start again when the dryer turns off and you go to use it again. This linkage also has to travel off a switch to the side of it with an arm that comes off the switch. I was able to put some dielectric grease on the shaft an get the linkage to stop hanging up for several weeks but has stopped working again. Any remedies for this (other than taking it to the landfill) would be greatly

The grease was a good try but you will need to replace the 4681EL1008A motor will have to be replaced to correct this problem.

I replaced my motor on the dryer and it has been working fine for months now - knock on wood. Thanks Fred & Barbara for your help and input.
