Question about Dryers
Start button energise a relay that latches open and provdes the current path for the very heavy draw of heaters, and motor.
the relay is dead, or dying and instead of locking open is fluttering like a doorbell (buzz buzz).
Not a repairable item, it is replaceable and not very expensive, much less than a new dryer, last one purchased was $29.99
Relays are common to many dryers, the local parts guy will have one to match if you take the dead one.
typical relay looks something like this, not all are transparent

Hi - I understand that the door won't engaged, however does it show any other symptoms? Try to start a drain spin cycle and let the unit run for approximately 5-7 minutes and press cancel once. If the door opens immediately, unit made have a bad door lock. If you have to wait for the door to release to open, then possibly you have a control or wiring issue.
