Anonymous asked 9 years ago
Just moved. Installed new vent hose on dryer. Cleaned lint filter. Worked perfectly for first 3 loads. After that, dryer started making buzzing noise when spinning. It's also taking twice the regular amount of time to just dry a medium load. What can be wrong? I know the dryer is spinning because the clothes are tumbling. When i open the door to the dryer, i can feel heat, but why is my dryer acting this way?

Inside the wall where the vent hose is connected to, there may be heavy lint buildup. Unhook the hose and buy a long lint brush to clean out the wall. Or use a canister vacuum with a wand. Also, make sure your dryer is on high heat setting as when you moved the setting may have been pressed or bumped. Also, where is the buzzing coming from? Model number on dryer????

Model MEDC300BW0 Serial M41969534. Just an update… the dryer seems to have completely stopped drying, no heat, but still spinning.

Check the thermal fuse.
