Is 10-year-old Kenmore Dryer 417.90042990 worth fixing?

My Kenmore Dryer 417.90042990 recently stopped working. It still heats up, but sometimes when I try to turn it on it just buzzes and nothing happens. We had a technician out who said it's probably the motor and it would cost $275 to replace. The dryer is 10 years old. Is this worth replacing or should I just bite the bullet and get a new dryer? Thanks.

If the cost to repair your old dryer is $275. & a new dryer is $400. I recommend buying new if you can afford it. If your old dryer needs a motor we can guide you through the repair process so you can save money on the labor.
