My electric LG5977 dryer makes a humming noise when the start button is pushed. If the hum goes away in a second or two the dryer continues and runs the cycle, hot or air dry, etc. If the hum continues beyond a few seconds the dryer shuts off, not the power, but the drum spinning. The power remains on but when I push the start button again it will not start. I then turn off the power and back on and it powers up but sometimes the start button does not start the machine. Almost like something electrical needs to cool for a few minutes. I turn off and back on a few minutes later and the machine is ready to start again, but with the hum issue all over again. The hum is not new, probably about 6 months now, but the issue with the drum not spinning is. I replaced the heating element a few months back as that went out. The heating element comes with a thermal fuse, I believe and something else already attached to it.

What say the pros? Drive motor?

Thanks

I have a short video of the dryer making the humming sound but it looks like there is no way to attach to this post.:confused:

There are no other symptoms or noises. The door switch works fine. I have left the door open, pushed the switch in and pushed start with the same results as above. Thanks again.
