Your motor has gone bad. Think of the motor as a starter in a car. When you turn the key (press the start button) power is applied to the starter, to be specific, the stator also called the start winding, same as the dryer. Then the rotor takes over and the stator drops off. With your machine the rotor isn't engaging and the stator is taking the load and shutting down.
May need to replace the starter swithch behind the control panel. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS DISCONNECTED. If you still hear a humming sound when you hit the start button then it is not the switch, but the motor and if that is the case you may want to look into your warranty.
Motor has a "Run" winding centrifugal switch that may need to be replaced. Start button energizes the starter winding but when the "run" switch fails the motor won't keep running. Switch is easily replaced without taking motor apart.
the dryer has Defective Drum Glides/Rollers. The dryer drum rests and spins on a set of rollers and/or drum glides. The
glides and rollers provide low friction contact points that allow the
drum to turn easily. When the glides and rollers become worn they can
cause the drum to drag. The dryer might only spin without a load or
only when assisted. Hope this helps.
