Yes I agree I had this on a similar model, it's the motor start condender/ capacitor. Note down the voltage and capacitance from the side of the condenser, and go to Maplin (or order from them on line), they are only a few quid. One other symptom: the side of the capacitor was slightly bulged out, indicating internal breakdown of the component.

f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
