Hello,

i have a samsung DVE45M5500P it turns on and wants to run but the drum does not turn, it also makes a loud buzzing sound.

I'm thinking it's belt, but i don't want to take the whole machine apart.

Is there away to get it at? does anyone have the service manual?

thank you

Hi,

It sounds like you may have something stuck/jammed in the blower wheel, that attaches directly to your motor, thus the motor will buzz/hum and not run.

Watch this video to get access to the blower wheel:

Let us know what you find.

The blower turns freely. I didn’t go as far as to remove the drum. I can give it a try and see what happens.
Thanks jake.

the blower turns freely, there was a lot of lint that I removed (no judgement, not my dryer;)). so i put all back together, the motor wants to work but doesnt turn the drum, i gave the drum a push and it turns, try different setting, i hear the motor, and again i gave the drum a little nudge and it went again.

What else could it be?

thanks
