My first thought was you have a broken belt and the humming noise you hear is the motor but most dryers have a belt switch which will not allow the motor to run if the belt is broken.

The humming might also be a relay on the control board.

The images below shows how to remove the lower access panel and top panel.

If the belt is not broken then it may be an electrical problem with the control. This would require a model number and meter to check.

Please reply with a model number for further assistance.
