Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 times and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just make a buzzing noise and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem. I recommend having a technician properly diagnose and repair your dryer.
