Maytag Dryer DE606

I have a Maytag dryer model number DE606. Recently when I press the
start button it makes a loud buzz. If I continue to depress the
button sometimes it starts and then sometimes it stops buzzing and
does nothing whatsoever. I will then wait a period of time and it
will start and dry normally.

Any suggestions.

Thanks.

Steve

Hi,
I have a Maytag dryer model number DE606.
Oldie!! 25+ tears old :)
Recently when I press the
start button it makes a loud buzz.
Motor going sour is possible, or something holding the motor back from
starting ( tight fan blower, tight drum bearing, ect )....someone
would have to investigate and eliminate things as possible trouble
makers.
If I continue to depress the
button sometimes it starts and then sometimes it stops buzzing and
does nothing whatsoever. I will then wait a period of time and it
will start and dry normally.
When it has gone dead the motor has probably shut off on it's built in
safety/thermal switch, continually doing this will damage the motor (
if not already bad ).
