You have a bad motor. You can remove and verify probably bad bearings and burnt start winding.

Kenmore dryer 70 series doesn't always start, sometimes it will just put out a buzzing sound after its been running and trying to restart, will start back up after 20-30 minutes.

Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum 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.

Turns off after a few minutes

sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

Kenmore Clean Touch dryer making buzzing sound and

Ya, happened to me. Sounds like you may have a clogged vent. (in the tube, or the dryer itself. Try cleaning that out really good. Then, double check that the venting is secured properly. If not, may overheat and shut down. I think that's what's going on. After you clean tubing (And the inside tube on dryer), the buzzing will continue for a while (days) until itr resets. If it runs after this, but still buzzes, that's your problem. Hope this helps you!

Kenmore dryer runs then shuts off

The parts store should have never sold you the motor. They rarely if ever fail on a dryer. It sounds like a limit switch or sensor wire was damaged by the burning. Check out the wiring and if you feel comfortable jumper out one switch at a time to see which one is not working. Do only one at a time. Photograph everything before you take anything apart.
