Powers up fine.Select cycle and push start.Makes a humming noise for 2 or 3 seconds and stops making noise but nothing happens.All lights stay on as far as control panel concerned looks like its working fine but nothing is happening.

Does the Drum run at all ?

Can you turn the Drum ?

How's the Belt ?

Can it be re-started (more hum) right away ?

Usually a sock or similar object has become caught in the BLOWER WHEEL---motor cannot start.

The drum does not turn.Can turn by hand clockwise but not counterclockwise.Not sure about the belt have not figured out how to take apart yet.Once the humming stops you can press the start button again and it does the same thing...couple seconds of humming then that stops.The display stays on as if everything is working.How can I check the blower wheel and how would a sock or something get to it?ThANKS FOR THE SPEEDY HELP.

Unplug dryer

Looking at the rear of dryer---the TOP COVER has what looks like "hinges"

At each plastic "hinge"---there are 2 phillips-type screws---remove only the lower screws at each "hinge".

Grasp the TOP COVER and slide rear about 2 inches---lift off & remove.

Standing at the front of the dryer---remove the WATER DISPENSER TRAY (release tab is at the bottom of the drawer).

Remove the 2 phillips screws that are now visible with the WATER DISPENSER DRAWER removed.

At the right-hand side of the CONTROL PANEL---remove a single phillips screw from the corner (opposite side of panel).

Disconnect plugs/wires that are directly behind the *jog dial* of the CONTROL PANEL

Remove the CONTROL PANEL---a small flat screwdriver helps to unsnap the **tabs** that secure the CONTROL PANEL

With the CONTROL PANEL removed---remove the 5 screws which secure the entire FRONT PANEL/COVER of the dryer. These screws are located at the top of the front panel---and were not visible with the CONTROL PANEL installed.

Pull the FRONT PANEL towards you just enough to allow unplugging the DOOR SWITCH

Lift the entire FRONT PANEL an inch or so & remove

Remove the LINT FILTER & place it inside the Drum

Looking at the front of the dryer---you'll notice a DUCT HOUSING (silver)

Remove the 2 phillips screws from the DUCT & slide it down-and-away.

With a bright flashlight---examine the BLOWER HOUSING---remove any clothing/obstruction

Re-assemble in reverse order
