    Default hum and no heat

    Model - 110.66902692

    This is the model number of the dryer I posted about with intermittent heat.

    I looked another dryer that may be the same model. It did have the same temp/cycle switch. When you turn it on, there is a very noticeable hum when it first starts running. It does come on and run, and the humming goes away very quickly. Normally, I would say it is the motor going out, but I can't really tell if it is the motor. It sounds almost like it is coming from the timer.
    I thought it did not heat, but it does heat.

    Guestion: Do timers making a humming noise like a weak motor sometimes when going bad?

    I don't believe that I have heard one do that....some tick/click very loudly, some growl from the timer motor, some stick when moving/advancing but I don't believe that I have heard one hummmmmm.

    It does come on and run, and the humming goes away very quickly. Normally, I would say it is the motor going out, but I can't really tell if it is the motor.
    Disconnect the timer motor wire, noise still there....slip off the drum belt, noise still there, etc, etc.

    This was one I looked at to possibly try to flip but backed off when I heard the loud hum that sounded like a motor, but seemed like it may have been coming from the timer. I think the sound may have traveled up the corner wall from the motor.

    That is a very good possibility!
