Kenmore 80 series Dryer NOT working

Have a 13 (?) yr old Kenmore 80 series dryer.  As of two days ago, when I push the start button, I just get a buzzing sound.  Yesterday in desperation, I pushed and held the start button down for a few seconds.  It actually did start to turn/tumble, and twice ran for 10-15 seconds and then stopped. The third time it stayed on for +20 minutes and dried the load. Today I tried that trick and get nothing.  In fact, after trying 3 times, now when I push the button, I don't even get the buzzing sound. 
Can anyone tell me what the problem is likely to be?  Is this something a non-handy homeowner like myself could fix?  If not, what might be the cost of having a repair person in?  
Also, does anyone know if this dryer model has "moisture sensing"?  In looking up new dryer features, this seems to be about the only feature of great worth, and I don't know if this dryer already has it or not.
THANKS for any and all help!!!

Kenmore Series 80 Heavy Duty Gas Dryer turns on but drum won't move - is this likely a belt problem? Dryer is about 12-13 years old. Model 75651


Good day,
Reach in, and see if you can move the drum. It will be a little stiff, but should turn.
If so, yes, it is probably a belt.

Look below. (Yes it is made by Whirlpool).
If hyperlink won't work, then copy and paste it in the address bar of your browser.

Knemore 80 series dryer won't start every time


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior
