The start windings in your motor went out. You have to replace the motor. You can check by having someone hold in the door switch and press the start button while you spin the drum. If it starts then thats your problem. If it doesnt start it is still your problem. Change the motor and it will fix it for sure!

Whirlpool dryer. When pressing the start button the motor humms. It keeps humming until opened or unplugged. Does seem to generate heat though.

I have a kenmore 90 plus series model # 11068972892............... when i push start button the dryer motor will humm and mabey start to run or it will just humm and not run at all..if it...

Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.
