I have a Roper dryer Heavy Duty extra large capacity. It is about 2 years old and has barely been used. Recently when I tried to used it. I pushed the start button in and it just hummed loudly and would not start. What do I do? Thanks.

That sounds like the motor may be siezed. You will need to open the unit up and test the motor by hand to see if the shaft turns freely.

For mor information please post your model number off the dryer.

Try this first: Open the door and tape the door switch closed. Put it into any cycle and press the start button. As it is humming, try to rotate the drum. If it does start to turn, you definitely need to replace the motor. Make sure the hum you hear is a stalled motor, rather than a broken belt.
