GE gas dryer won't start

Pushing the "start" button and the dryer makes a humming noise like the motor is stuck. I tried turning the drum by hand and it turns freely but still doesn't start.

Or it could be that what you are hearing is the motor, and the belt is bad. Post a make and model number, and someone should be able to get more specific. And welcome!

Quick test takes 2 people. Open door and hold door switch in,Turn dryer on, push start button and turn drum, If dryer starts than you have a bad motor.
