When we push the start button, it only buzzes. A few weeks ago it did the same thing and after it cooled off, it started. Now it just buzzes and doesn't start. Could it just be the thermal fuse? When it was working it heated well. It is a Maytag Performa dryer. Model # PYET444AYW Serial# 15561376GA/OR LAST TWO ARE 6A

Tracey for Model Number PYET444AYW

ANSWER Hello Tracey. Based on the information you provided, the motor W10410996 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
