My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Make sure there is 240vac then check the door switch, the start switch. Beyond the obviouse it is basic troubleshooting to work down to the failed component. Eric

a complete model # from inside the door would be helpful, on wost dryers when this occures the motor is packed with lint so the sentrifisle switch cant move from the pastion to the run or the switch on the motor itself is bad, the run windings in the motor could be bad. some of thethe more complicated dryers have a relay on their control board than burns out. try blowing out the motor with compressed air or the blow end of a shop vac use the skinney attat. to concentrate air
