I have a Kenmore electric dryer-110.60612990. It was humming for a period of time. Yesterday when I push the start button it hums, works for about 5 mins then shuts off. Today, I pressed the start button, there is nothing..no noise. Is it just the motor or could it be a variety of problems. I had this dryer since in 2000.
desperate need for help.

Here’s whatcha do, compadre. Open the dryer door and try to turn the drum by hand. If it won’t turn or you have to be Hercules to get it to budge, then you have something stuck in the blower chute– clean it out.
On the other hand, if the drums seems to turn ok, then you got yerself a bad motor. Slam dunk. Come git you one.
