If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

Why does my car make sqealing sound when I start it ?

Why does my car make sqeaking sound

I would say that your fan belt is loose,the one which
goes round the alternator and water pump pulley behind
the front fan. You can loosen two maybe three nuts on the
alternator,lever it until tight.I use a short pole so not over tight,
as you do this the nuts need to be tightened.It would be better
if you had help first time.
For safety sake check belt for splits and cracks or if really
thin and shiny.If so change it.

Noisey sounds from under the hood when starting car

If it is a rattling sound the starter may be loose, the starter bendix gear might be damaged.

If it sounds like a fan, it is likely the cooling fan.

If it is squealing, it is the serpentine belt. The idlers may be worn, their bearings may be dry- they make a chirping sound at slower speeds when they are dried out. Replacement is the best option.

Air pumps can sometimes make a thumping sound, and if certain emissions valving rusts through, it can be outright exhaust noise.

If it is a high pitch whine, that is usually the alternator. It is not a good sign when they begin to whine. Alternator bearings can also fail, and the sound varies.

Water pumps and fan clutches can also fail and they tend to make softer sounds. These can be checked by checking for radial play in each item with and without serpentine belt tension applied.

When we start our dryer it makes a loud noise as if it struggles to get the drum moving. Once the dryer is moving it has no trouble moving, but every time we start it, the noise happens again even if i was...

Is this noise like a loud buzz or hum? If it is it may be the motor draging
and can't quite get going. bearing getting worn.
Also check drum rollers or glides and the idler pully one of them may
be dragging if they are you might put a little high temp oil on it.
Hope this helps..

Car makes a loud sqealing sound when i start it

I think you should start by putting a new belt on. This may solve the problem.

Dryer making very loud noise.

We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
