Try holding the door switch lever in and turning the drum hard by hand. It sounds like you have a start switch out in the motor.

WARNING: High Voltage may bzzt you... careful.
Your dryer thinks that it is at the end of a dry cycle.
First thing to do is disconect the dryer from the 220v mains and let it sit for about 10 min.
then, spin the timer four or five times around and then stop it at a TIMED dry cycle, not an automatic cycle. (example: 60 minutes).
Plug unit back into the wall.
SLAM door on unit and press button again...

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.
