Hello - When I push the start button on my Frigidaire dryer it just makes a buzz sound and will not start. I wonder what is wrong? Thanks

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

can you get someone to push the start button while you hold the door switch in and spin the drum by hand and see if it starts?

That worked. What does that mean?
you start windings in the motor are shot, you would need to replace the motor to fix this. not an easy job but if your handy you could do it. hope this helps, thanks Bryan

Unfortunately, I am not handy. It is a three year old dryer. I am wondering if it is worth the price of repair....
if you can get me the model # XXXXX'll check the price of the motor for you.
