First.Unplug the dryer.
Disassemble the dryer and clean the lint from the motor and blower wheel.
Check the wiring connections to the motor.
If this does not correct your problem you have a bad motor.

People, the first words the poster said were that the dryer was "brand new". All of your suggestions assume the dryer had extensive use. This sounds like a factory defect issue!!!! My brand new Maytag Cabrio gas dryer is also making an obnoxious buzzing sound that seems to cycle on and off as the gas ignites. The buzzing sounds electronic not mechanical. What would buzz when the burner is active?

Old GE dryer DDE8200GDLWH


Sometimes when the windings in the motor start to go bad it has to overcome more load at the start up therefore drawing more amps and after to long the dryer will no longer start, time for a new dryer

Maytag gas dryer noise when burner comes on


The noise you are describing is coming from the gas valve solenoid coil assembly. This is usually indicative of weak coil.
If this is a warranty situation, request a factory authorized certified technician to replace the solenoid assy. at no charge.
If you want to fix it yourself, be sure and ask us for instructions on replacing the part safely.
