Question and Answers

Q:

dryer drum turns manually both ways when start button pushed makes humming noise drum doesnt rotate changed belt mod# dwsr463eg3ww how to troublesh

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom it sounds like a faulty motor since you said it hums whenever start is pushed. Or, is the motor starting and running but the drum is not turning? If the motor is running and the drum is not turning, the belt has most likely come off.

If the motor is only humming and not starting; try this trick. Open the door and locate the door switch and push it in and hold it in. Have someone begin to turning the drum in a counter clockwise direction and then push start to see if the motor will start and run. If it does, this confirms the motor is getting proper voltage and the motor is faulty.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
