Question about Dryers
I put in second load of laundry in dryer today, set the timer and pushed the start button and nothing happened. I can hear the timer ticking. Also, when the timer is in the off position and the start button is pushed, it usually buzzes, but not doing that either
SOURCE: whirlpool dryer won't start
It sounds like you have lost a leg of power. Turn off both breakers, then back on. Then check the receptacle, the plug and then the wiring to the back of the dryer. This is likely where it is. There is a thermal fuse located under the top of the dryer. Easy to get to. Bypass it and if it works then, just replace it for about 15 dollars.

SOURCE: Dryer drum will not turn.
If the buzz continues to go for awhile(2-3 minutes before you stop it you will need to replace the belt on your dryer.
If the buzz quits pretty quickly after you let go of the start button and you smell something hot or electrical, you will need to replace the motor.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.

More specifically, the timer can be heard running, starts and stops when door is closed/opened, so not likely to be the timer. You have a problem at the motor. A wire off a terminal, the switch on the motor, or the motor itself.
