Machine needs to be broken down, cleaned and inspected. There is a chance there is something caught in the turbin that circulates air through the machine.

two possibel reasons for this
1, you have something stuck in the blower moter
look down the lint trap you may just be able to see it
2. your motor is going bad
open the door and hold the door switch with tape or something like it
push the button and try to spin the tumbler while you hear the buzz
if it starts up and the buzz goes away,,,, your motors start wionding is gone and you will need to replace the motor

Won`t starts for second load of clothes. just humms?

Does it start after about 1 hr?? Sound like the motor is going bad and over heating. If it starts when it cools off then motor needs replaced.

Won`t start to dry second load of clothes after the first. dryer humms?

If hum is coming from motor and it won't restart until it cools down, it usually means the motor is going bad and overheating. This could also be caused by excessive lint around motor area or blocked vent but usually the motor itself.

Capacitor should be inside cylindrical cover on motor's side; simplest test is to replace it. If motor humms but won't turn maybe bad capacitor, stuck bearing (turn by hand) or bad/dirty centrifugal switch contact. If no humm at all, may have burnt internal neutral wire.

Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.

Does the motor humm when it starts?
If it humms then the motor is bad. Make sure the rollers are not stuck or that the blower has obstructions inside.
